ORLANDO, Fla. – AdventHealth will soon have a new president and CEO for its Central Florida Division.

Randy Haffner will take the helm starting Feb. 1.

In his new role, Haffner will oversee the strategic direction, development and expansion of the entire division, which includes 18 campuses across seven counties. Haffner replaces Daryl Tol, who recently resigned.

Haffner currently serves as senior executive vice president for AdventHealth and president/CEO for the Multi-State Division, where he leads the division’s five regions, which comprise 20 campuses across eight states.

“I’ve known Randy for many years and one of the qualities I admire most about him is his commitment to lead with and through our mission of extending the healing ministry of Christ,” said Terry Shaw, president/CEO for AdventHealth. “His rich leadership experience, coupled with having served in the Central Florida Division before, will serve him well as he steps into this role and continues to expand the delivery of faith-based, whole-person care to the communities we serve in Central Florida.”

“I am honored, humbled and excited to come back to the Central Florida Division and serve alongside the amazing leaders, providers and team members who have truly risen to the occasion in the midst of a global pandemic,” Haffner said. “Ensuring the health and wholeness of our team and the safety of our patients is my top priority as we continue to extend Christ’s healing ministry and deliver whole-person care — every person, every time.”

Haffner earned an undergraduate degree from Walla Walla University and a master’s degree in business administration from the Roy E. Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College. He also earned a doctorate in leadership studies from Andrews University.
