Jeffrey Casale Named AVP of Support Services at Saratoga Hospital
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., July 21, 2021—Saratoga Hospital has promoted Jeffrey Casale to associate vice president of support services. He oversees engineering, construction and property management, public safety, emergency preparedness, environmental services, and food and nutritional service.
Casale, of Ballston Lake, joined Saratoga Hospital in 1988 and has held positions of increasing responsibility ever since. Most recently, he was director of facility operations.
“During his more than 30-year career with us, Jeff has consistently taken on new challenges and led new initiatives,” said Angelo Calbone, Saratoga Hospital president and CEO. “He is known throughout our organization for his knowledge, willingness to teach others, calm whatever-it-takes approach in the face of crisis, and sense of humor. We are extremely fortunate to have Jeff on our team.”
Casale played an important role in every major Saratoga Hospital building project in the past two decades. An advocate for continuing education, Casale spearheaded efforts to implement the Certified Healthcare Environmental Services Technician certification program for environmental services employees at Saratoga Hospital.
Under his leadership, Saratoga Hospital was the first hospital in the Capital Region to earn a Clean Facility certificate from the Association for the Healthcare Environment. Launched in response to COVID-19, the certificate program helps assure patients, staff and visitors that a facility adheres to hospital-grade cleaning and disinfection practices.
Casale also was instrumental in reviving the Eastern New York Society for Healthcare Engineering, the local chapter of the American Society for Healthcare Engineering. Currently, he is the Eastern New York chapter president.
