Bayhealth Neurosciences Poised for Growth with hire of Senior Director

Monday, November 6, 2023 | Neurosciences
Bayhealth continues its commitment to neuroscience excellence with the hire of Adam Spengler, MHA, who joined the organization in August in the role of senior director of the Neurosciences service line.

Prior to his appointment, Spengler held roles at Nemours Children’s Hospital — most recently as administrator of the Cancer and Neuroscience Center, department of Pediatrics. Before his work there, he held finance and strategic planning decision support roles at Penn Medicine (University of Pennsylvania Health System).

“I look forward to the opportunity to grow the Neurosciences team and to strive to meet the needs of our communities we serve,” said Spengler, who earned a BBA in finance from Millersville University of Pennsylvania and an MHA at Penn State University. “By leveraging our existing partnerships in the region, we can improve outcomes for many through new technologies and medical expertise.”

Spengler added that what he likes most about Bayhealth is its unwavering dedication to the community it serves, the family-like feel among the employees, and the commitment towards improving quality with every patient.

Along with Bayhealth’s Neurosciences Medical Directors, Dawn Tartaglione, DO, FACOS, and Ali Sheharyar, MD, Spengler will build a strategic plan for Neurosciences for the health system that will include targeted growth areas. The leadership team will plan for adding neurointerventional services, expanding outpatient access, opening a clinical practice in the southern region of the state, and identifying other modalities to add over next several years.

The service line expansion will benefit the region as residents grow older.

“As our population continues to evolve and we see the demand for more access, we have opportunities to meet the community need, especially in areas like movement disorder, general neurological needs, and advanced neurological procedures,” said Michael Ashton, MPH, FACHE, administrator, Bayhealth Sussex Campus/vice president of operations.

Ashton expressed his gratitude for the leadership of Janelle Hobbs, MBA, MSN, RN, who served as interim senior director of the Neurosciences service line for nearly a year. In that time, she helped to enhance many of the clinic operations and the hospital-based services.
