WICHITA – Pam Stanberry, a registered nurse who holds a master’s degree in business administration, has been hired as the executive director of the Guadalupe Clinic, a ministry of the Diocese of Wichita, effective May 21.
Stanberry, who is currently the CEO of Wesley Rehabilitation Hospital in Wichita, is particularly qualified to lead the ministry because she comes with experience – she has volunteered at the clinic and is a former member of its board.
She succeeds Marlene Dreiling who passed away unexpectedly after directing the clinic for 13 years.
In addition to her current role managing the day-to-day operations of the Wesley Rehabilitation Hospital, Stanberry has 25 years of hospital management experience, an MBA from City University, Spokane, Wash; a bachelor of arts in business marketing from Eastern Washington University in Spokane, Wash; and registered nurse degree from University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio. She was a Guadalupe Clinic board member and nursing volunteer from 1995 to 2011.
Guadalupe Clinic board president Dan Loughman said Stanberry brings a unique combination of health care education, experience, and long-term proven administrative skills in addition to her service as a volunteer and former member and officer of the Clinic board of directors.
“As such she will serve us well as we seek to carry on and continue our 27-year history of providing much needed health care service, in the spirit of dignity and compassion, to the uninsured and underserved of the Wichita metro community, following the loss of our beloved former director, Marlene Dreiling.”
