Rafael Ramirez has joined Halifax Health as the market development specialist for the Daytona Beach-based healthcare system.
"We are excited to have Rafael Ramirez join our team here at Halifax Health. He will be a tremendous asset as we look to further expand our healthcare system and increase our community outreach," Director of Corporate Communications John Guthrie said.
Mr. Ramirez joins Halifax Health after serving as president of BankFIRST in Ormond Beach (formerly known as East Coast Community Bank) for more than 11 years. He will primarily focus on the West Volusia area, where he will oversee Halifax Health construction projects and assist in physician recruitment. Also, he will spearhead the healthcare system's community outreach in Ormond Beach.
"After 33 years in one industry as a top-level executive, I couldn't envision being so excited to switch over and have such a great opportunity at Halifax Health. With all the new building and expansion efforts, I couldn't have envisioned a better opportunity," Mr. Ramirez said.
