The BayCare Alliant Hospital Board has selected Maya Perez as president of BayCare Alliant Hospital, effective March 3. 

“We looked nationally and found the best candidate,’’ said Alan Holderith, chairman of the board for BayCare Alliant Hospital. “We were impressed with Maya’s vision, transparency and priorities for BayCare Alliant and are excited to have her join us. Her extensive leadership experience and her background made for an excellent match.’’

Perez is a Florida native with nearly 25 years of health care experience. Since October 2020, she has been the administrator of the Madonna Ptak Morton Plant Rehabilitation Center, running the day-to-day operations. Prior to that, she served with Genesis Healthcare as the Regional Executive Director of the West Bay Center Skilled Nursing Home in Oldsmar.

Perez’s commitment and leadership have been recognized by the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, the Governor's Gold Seal Award, and Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators.

In addition to her professional experience, Perez has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work and is a registered nurse and licensed clinical social worker.

In her new role, she will oversee the overall operation of BayCare Alliant Hospital to ensure the highest degree of quality patient care.

BayCare Alliant is a 48-bed long-term, acute care facility attached to Mease Dunedin Hospital but operating independently of it. It has its own entrance and dedicated medical facilities. The hospital’s critical care specialists treat patients with complex medical or respiratory conditions that require an extended stay.

“I am excited to join the BayCare Alliant team,’’ Perez said. “We will work to continually elevate our skill and practice to meet the unique needs of our critically ill post-acute patients and their families while strengthening our relationships in our community.’’
