JNEWS: Marshall, Tom [MC1969] CFO Lakeway Regional Medical Center Texas



LRMC under new management

The troubled Lakeway Regional Medical Center has annunced a Hospital Management Agreement which will lead to a new team taking over the day to day running of the facility. This follows a thwarted attempt to sell the facility to a larger operator.

Here is the April 30th Press Release — “The Board of Lakeway Regional Medical Center (LRMC) has signed a multi-year administrative services agreement with QIR (QHR Intensive Resources) for management support services. The announcement of the agreement was made by Frank Sossi, legal counsel and acting interim chair of the hospital Board of Managers, and Mickey Bilbrey, president of QIR.

Under the terms of the agreement, QIR will furnish an on-site CEO and CFO management team, bringing expertise and resources to strengthen the hospital’s ongoing operations and enabling it to continue providing high quality patient care to the community. The hospital’s Board of Managers will retain full control over governance responsibilities.

“The Board carefully considered its alternatives before choosing QIR,” said Mr. Sossi. “Having engaged QIR last year for consulting support, we got to know them, valued their expertise, and decided QIR would be a good fit to help the hospital grow. We believe that QIR will be an effective partner in strategically moving LRMC forward and improving hospital performance.”

QIR has significant experience working with community hospitals and health systems. Mr. Bilbrey noted that QIR has provided LRMC with financial and operational advisory services over the past several months and understands the specific situation at LRMC: “We look forward to expanding our role to oversee hospital management and working with the LRMC medical staff and employees in meeting the healthcare needs of the Lakeway community.”

Joyce Hein, interim CEO, will continue to serve in this capacity while a national search for a permanent CEO is conducted. Tom Marshall has been named permanent CFO. Mr. Marshall has 25 years’ experience in financial executive positions within the healthcare industry. He is a graduate of Manhattan College and a CPA.”

JNEWS: Carbonell, Ruben [MC1969] elected to the National Academy of Engineering



Chemical engineering professor Ruben Carbonell has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest honors in the field. He is one of 67 new members and 11 foreign associates announced by the academy Thursday.

Carbonell was cited for “research and innovation in multiphase reactor design, high-pressure thin-film coating, and novel bioseparation processes.”

In the early 1980s, he developed a new mathematical model to describe the hydrodynamic performance of trickle bed reactors that are useful in petroleum processing. In the mid-1990s, his research group developed a novel way of identifying small, inexpensive and robust peptide ligands for the purification of proteins from biological sources by affinity chromatography.

Carbonell’s work was instrumental in identifying specific ligands for the removal of the prion protein that is responsible for variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, better known as Mad Cow Disease, in humans. He led the development of a process for making a novel filter to be used for the removal of prion protein from human blood during transfusions. One of these ligands is also being used to reduce the risk of prion transmission during intravenous injections of therapeutics such as antibodies derived from pooled human plasma.

Carbonell is a fellow of both the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society. His numerous awards at NC State include the Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal for Excellence, the highest award given to university faculty. He has published over 230 papers, is an inventor with more than 30 patents and is co-founder of two start-up companies.

Carbonell earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Manhattan College in 1969 and a Ph.D. from Princeton in 1973. He spent 10 years in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Davis before joining NC State in 1984.

He served as head of the Department of Chemical Engineering at NC State from 1994 to 1999 and was also co-director of the National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center for Environmentally Responsible Solvents and Processes from 1999 to 2008.

Carbonell is the director of the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science and has led the Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center on Centennial Campus since 2008.

He is the 12th current NC State faculty member to be elected to the NAE, a private, independent nonprofit organization that provides engineering leadership in service to the nation. Two emeritus faculty members are also members.

JNEWS: Quinn, Peter [MC1969] Dry Bones, the third and final installment



The History-Mystery Man
Peter Quinn
Peter Quinn

By Tom Deignan
December / January 2014

The author Peter Quinn, whose third and final installment of the Detective Fintan Dunne trilogy was released in October, talks to Tom Deignan.

It’s been nearly 20 years since Peter Quinn’s epic Banished Children of Eve, arguably the greatest novel of the New York Irish, was published. Over the course of 600 pages, Quinn depicts the city in all its gore and glory, as the Irish and others struggle to find a place in America, which had absorbed wave after wave of Famine immigrants, only to then be plunged into a bloody Civil War. With extraordinary attention to detail and a diverse cast of characters, Quinn presents the causes and consequences of these seismic events, including the Draft Riots of 1863, and raises important questions about the Irish, immigration, assimilation and the myth of the melting pot.

“Once the Irish stepped off those boats, they were different people. Because now they had to deal with all these other people,” Quinn said recently, seated in the back room of the Old Town bar on East 18th Street in Manhattan.

Now 66, Quinn was alternately comic and reflective, irreverent and earnest, over the course of a wide-ranging interview that covered his writing career, the Irish in America, as well as his latest book, Dry Bones, the third and final installment in his celebrated Fintan Dunne trilogy.
