Congratulations to Cory Majszak on winning facility management award09/14/23 02:00:pm
Cory Majszak, director of environmental services in Oconomowoc, is this year’s recipient of the American Society for Health Care Engineering®’s Regional Leader Award for Region 6, which includes Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The award recognizes Cory for his leadership and contributions to the field of healthcare facility management.
Cory recently traveled to San Antonio, Texas to receive the award.
“To be recognized by your peers for the contributions you’ve made not only at the state level, but also at a national level was humbling,” says Cory. “A lot of the work I was recognized for was actually part of an initiative I began before I joined Rogers, which was the development of an intern and apprenticeship program utilized by my former employer and others nationally. I still assist with the program today.”
Cory is the current senior past president of the Wisconsin Healthcare Engineers Association and serves on the boards of the American Society of Health Care Engineering’s (ASHE) Workforce Development Committee, the Gateway Technical College Facilities Advisory Board and the Milwaukee Area Technical College ABS Advisory Board. He has a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Marquette University as well as a master’s in Organizational Leadership and Administration from Concordia University. He has earned his ASHE Certified Healthcare Facilities Manager designation and is a DNV (alternative to the Joint Commission) Certified Healthcare Operations Professional.
Cory joined Rogers in October 2022, bringing more than two decades of healthcare support services experience to the organization. He credits the leadership and culture created by Barb Whitstone, vice president of Facilities, with making his job so enjoyable.
“She inspires and motivates me,” he says. “I thought I worked at a cool place before, but I’ve never experienced the level of respect and professionalism that exists here thanks to Barb’s leadership. There’s collaboration which has allowed me to hit the ground running and feel like my contributions are incredibly valued.”
Cory says no two days are the same and he likes it that way.
“It keeps you fresh and on the cutting edge, thinking about how we can best serve our teammates, patients, and community,” he says. “Healthcare is one of the most highly regulated industries so you have to stay on top of your craft and keep your saw sharp. That’s fun for me. I like thinking about ways to innovate and motivate the team.”
