In May, UF Health Shands Psychiatric Hospital and UF Health Shands Rehab Hospital staff honored Marina Cecchini, M.P.A., for her 17 years of service as administrator for both hospitals.
During Cecchini’s time as administrator for the psychiatric hospital, it expanded from one to three inpatient psychiatry units; and the hospital-based physician health program evolved to offering the full continuum of care at the Florida Recovery Center campus. She also served as a respected advocate for people with behavioral health disorders, representing UF Health at the local, regional and national levels as an adviser to impact health policy and practices in the industry.
In June, Cecchini joined Select Medical’s executive team to serve as the rehab hospital’s CEO. As part of a shared ownership agreement with UF Health Shands, Select Medical is slated to eventually assume full management and operations of the rehab hospital.
Roxane Harcourt, LCSW, LMFT, is now interim administrator for the psychiatric hospital. Harcourt is also the executive director of the UF Health Florida Recovery Center and a key member of the hospital’s leadership team.
