"It’s been a pleasure to get to know the exceptional physicians, employees and volunteers at Easton Hospital," said Zidansek in a press release announcing the appointment. "I’m honored to continue working with them to provide a destination where patients can seek high quality care."

Before joining Easton Hospital, he was CEO of Lock Haven Hospital in central Pennsylvania. During his tenure, employee and patient satisfaction as well as key quality metrics increased significantly. He continued the growth of the primary care base including the establishment of a new rural health clinic.
