He has been with the Miami Valley healthcare community 31 years, according to the internal communication, which also gives a timeline of Shaker's career: 

 "During his tenure, Mark was instrumental in introducing the first operational improvement division at MVH using Lean and Six Sigma methods to improve operational performance. 

While acting as Good Sam's COO, Mark was also instrumental in the consolidation of The Dayton Heart Hospital with the Good Samaritan's heart and vascular program. 

More recently, Mark in conjunction with the four hospitals and their medical staffs, developed the system's service line strategy which assisted Premier with strengthening its system approach to delivering care throughout the region. 

Serving in the capacity of President for three of Premier's divisions (Fidelity Healthcare, Good Samaritan Hospital and now Miami Valley Hospital), Mark has demonstrated a passion for excellence and helped Miami Valley Hospital achieve high levels of quality and service that recently culminated into a HealthGrades Top 100 hospital recognition for the second straight year. 

We wish Mark all the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his many contributions.... A formal search is underway to fill the position of president of Miami Valley Hospital."
