Carol Kunau, R.N., was recently appointed vice president of Patient Care Services for AMC, according to Deryl Jones, president and CEO of the hospital. In her new role, Kunau oversees all patient care areas of the facility.

“Carol’s selection was the conclusion of a thorough search that considered local candidates as well as prospects from throughout the nation,” said Jones. “Our administrative team, physician leaders, and nursing management team are pleased that Carol has decided to join our employee family and know that her many years of experience and commitment to the mission of Adventist Health will be a benefit to our hospital.”

Recently, Kunau demonstrated her commitment to the mission of AMC by holding a dedication service for her directors, managers, and educators. In all, 50 employees filled the chapel at CherryWood Village to revisit their “callings” and rededicate themselves to Adventist Health’s mission.

Before joining AMC’s team, Kunau served as the vice president of Patient Care Services at CENTURA HEALTH, Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, in Colorado Springs, Colo. Previously, she was vice president of Patient Care Services for Florida Hospital, a sister Seventh-day Adventist Hospital in Orlando, Fla. She has also served as a nurse educator and the director of Florida Hospital School of Practical Nursing.

Kunau holds a bachelor of science degree in nursing from Southern College in Collegedale, Tenn., and a masters of business administration degree from the Florida Institute of Technology in Orlando.

Kunau and her husband, Rit, have two grown daughters, Teri and Pam who live in Orlando.
