Former John Stroger press secretary lands County job

Caryn Stancik, former press secretary for John Stroger, has been named executive director of communications for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The position was created amid health system CEO Ramanathan Raju's efforts to reorganize the financially challenged public health care system. As a part of the transformation, Cook County Health has hired a handful of new executives and is putting greater emphasis on outpatient care.

Ms. Stancik, who will be paid a salary of $165,000, is scheduled to begin July 1 and report to Dr. Raju, the spokeswoman said.

“Caryn is a veteran communications specialist who has a depth of knowledge of the health system and Cook County government,” Dr. Raju said in a statement. “She understands the healthcare at large and will bring a wide range of experience and professionalism as the healthcare system undergoes a transformation.”

Between 2006 and 2011, Ms. Stancik was vice president of communications at Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council, a hospital trade group. She left MCHC in 2011, a group spokeswoman said. After her departure, Ms. Stancik focused on her public affairs and communications firm, Sydcom Inc., which she started in 1998.

Ms. Stancik joined the county in 1990 as director of communications at the Department of Public Health, according to a 2006 news release announcing her hiring at MCHC.

Mr. Stroger was a staunch advocate for the county health system, whose flagship hospital is named for him. He was president of the Cook County Board from 1994 to 2006, and died in 2008.

Ms. Stancik did not return a message seeking comment.
