After an extensive search, AdventHealth has named Justin Birmele to the position of CEO for AdventHealth Winter Park. Birmele will assume leadership of the hospital effective immediately. Birmele replaces Jennifer Wandersleben, who recently transitioned to a new role as president/CEO of acute care services for AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division – South Region.

Birmele most recently served as the vice president and chief operating officer for AdventHealth Winter Park, responsible for leading hospital operations, including ancillary and support service departments. Justin also oversaw the renovation and construction projects for the hospital, including the new Nicholson Pavilion and the AdventHealth Oviedo ER. He has worked in health care for more than 18 years with the majority of those being at AdventHealth in both clinical and operational areas.
