Healthcare Network's Director of Administrative Operations Thomas VanPelt recently spoke at the annual Veteran’s Day ceremony at Veterans Park in Lehigh Acres. Tom, who retired from the Navy as a lieutenant after serving for more than 20 years, was one of several veterans asked to speak about the VFW and American Legions and what these organizations offer the community. “We are honored to have Tom as part of our team and grateful that he continues to share his military experience for the good of the community,” said Dr. Ptaszek, vice president of operations for Healthcare Network. “His leadership and overall demeanor are such assets to Healthcare Network and have an invaluable impact on employee morale.”
Before retiring from the military and eventually joining Healthcare Network, Tom was the director of resource management for the Northeast Dental Command, during which time he managed ten dental offices in eight states.
