Miller named chief hospital executive at Bayshore Medical Center

Caitlin Miller has been appointed as president and chief hospital executive of Bayshore Medical Center, Hackensack Meridian Health announced Wednesday.

Miller, who started at Bayshore in 2014 as a staff nurse, has quickly ascended into various leadership roles. She most recently served as vice president of operations.

During her time at Bayshore, Miller has played a significant role in the improvements to growth, quality of care, reputation and patient experience, and team member engagement. She led the design and construction of the $48 million, 32,000-square-foot Dr. Robert H. Harris Emergency Care Center that opened last year, and the implementation of new outpatient programs and state-of-the-art technology upgrades to enhance patient care.

With this appointment, Miller will continue to be responsible for all aspects of inpatient, outpatient, emergency and community services for the hospital, and will continue to build upon the tremendous expansion and momentum that the medical center has achieved over the past few years.

Hackensack Meridian Health CEO Bob Garrett applauded the announcement.

“Caitlin’s experience and rise, beginning as a staff nurse at Bayshore Medical Center and most recently as vice president of operations, will bring an extraordinary perspective in her new role as president and chief hospital executive,” he said. “Under her leadership, Bayshore Medical Center will undoubtedly enhance its reputation as a health care destination in New Jersey.”
