WINDHAM HOSPITAL HONORS ED BUSSIERE
FOR EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP
Ed Bussiere, Director of Facilities and Engineering, has been named the recipient of Windham Hospital’s coveted Leadership Award. In presenting the award, Marty Levine, Vice President of Human Resources, cited Ed’s ability to successfully balance multiple projects and priorities, and Cary Trantalis, Vice President of Operations, noted Ed’s remarkable communication skills with his staff as well as outside vendors who work on projects at the Hospital. During his tenure at the Hospital, Ed has supervised renovation and expansion projects, from small room enhancements to massive additions to the building which have included the 2006 Emergency Department and Outpatient Services Expansion and the 1993 Shea addition. He is currently at the forefront of the Hospital’s new 30,000-square-foot Medical Office Building project, slated for groundbreaking later this year.
The Leadership Award—bestowed twice each year—originated in 2006 as a way to recognize outstanding leaders from the hospital’s management team. Previous honorees, representing departments throughout the Hospital, include Fran Boulay, Mark Patros, Anne Schmidt, Kevin Tupper, Brian Cawley, Cindy McClarran, Michelle Wallace, Bob Grindle, Nancy Kehoe, and Michael Dion. Mr. Bussiere, a resident of Willington, has served the Hospital since 1977.
