Corewell Health Pennock Hospital welcomes new president

Introducing Bill Hoefer, president of Corewell Health Pennock Hospital and Corewell Health Zeeland Hospital.

Hastings, Mich., Oct. 24, 2022 – Welcome to Bill Hoefer (pronounced Hoe-fur), FACHE, newly appointed president of Corewell Health™ Pennock Hospital, formerly Spectrum Health Pennock, also overseeing Corewell Health Zeeland Hospital. He began this new role Oct. 7.

On our journey to a unified region, Bill’s cumulative 27 years of health care experience and knowledge were the right skills at this critical moment in our journey to lead Pennock and Zeeland hospitals forward with passion and excellence.

Leadership experience at hospitals ranging in size from 56 to more than 700 beds has shown Bill is a proven innovator with a purposeful approach to ensure high-quality care. Bill entered the health care field as an administrative resident and since then has worked in many capacities, giving him a well-rounded understanding of operations across multiple functions. He has resounding, clear expectations that patients, families and community remain the core focus of the hospital’s goals.

“I’m already finding myself inspired by the Pennock team. It is apparent team members are committed to providing exceptional care,” shared Bill. “I look forward to learning more about Barry and Ionia counties while ensuring we continue providing timely access to high-quality, safe care in an environment that meets the needs of our patients, team members and providers.”

As Bill transitions to guide Pennock and Zeeland hospitals, additional leaders join alongside him to provide a consolidated leadership model. Bernie Jore, chief operating officer, will oversee operations for both Pennock and Zeeland hospitals. Additionally, Jennifer Becksvoort, director, human resources business partner, will oversee the human resources functions for these two locations.  Together, these leaders will foster efficiencies among Pennock and Zeeland hospitals to meet the collective needs of the region.

People are at the heart of everything we do, and the inspiration for our long and continuing legacy of strong community partnerships, philanthropy and transparency. Our award-winning team improves health, inspires hope and saves lives across 13 counties in West Michigan. We bring together 11 hospitals—including Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, with expert care from 350+ pediatric specialists in 70+ specialties and programs—three rehabilitation and nursing centers, 120 outpatient sites and telehealth services. We are proud to work with 4,000 physicians and advanced practice providers, including Spectrum Health Medical Group, one of the largest and most comprehensive multispecialty physician groups in West Michigan.
