Children’s Clinic director leaves position


Daniel A. Wasneechak will resign as executive director of the North Country Children’s Clinic, effective Friday, according to Samaritan Medical Center spokeswoman Krista A. Kittle.

Mr. Wasneechak left the post before his 90-day probationary period would have ended next month. Just two weeks ago, the clinic faced immediate closure, but stayed open after Samaritan Medical Center approved giving a loan up to $200,000 for up to one month as a safety net to the organization. That decision also included the state Department of Health approving Samaritan as temporary operator of the Children’s Clinic.

Mr. Wasneechak joined the Children’s Clinic mid-August. Prior to his appointment, agency cofounder and former executive director Janice L. Charles ran the agency on an interim basis. Mrs. Charles held that interim post for several months after former executive director Collene D. Alexander resigned after just three months on the job.

Calls seeking comment to Mrs. Charles and Board President Angela M. Gray were not immediately returned. When a Times reporter called Marketing Director Elaine P. Garvey, she referred comment Ms. Kittle, and any further such requests would also be forwarded to Ms. Kittle.
