Hornell hospital makes CEO appointment permanent

Jennifer L. Sullivan, who had served as interim president and chief executive officer of St. James Mercy Hospital in Hornell since August 2013, has been named permanently to the position effective Feb. 4, 2014.

The announcement was made by St. James Mercy’s board of directors and Catholic Health East-Trinity, a national health system to which St. James Mercy belongs.

Sullivan is St. James Mercy’s former chief financial officer and has worked at the hospital since 2003. Last August she became interim president/CEO upon the resignation of Mary E. LaRowe, who had served since 2007 in that position.

"My priority is to continue leading our New Vision Task Force in its extremely important work to create a business plan that outlines a new model of health care for our community," Sullivan said in a statement. "The new model will deliver an attractive array of services that are sustainable and meet the community’s primary health-care needs. The people in Hornell need and deserve high-quality care close to home, and we are best positioned to deliver this care."

John Capasso, CHE-Trinity executive vice president, said in a statement that Sullivan "has clearly demonstrated her commitment to creating a long-term, viable healthcare presence for the Hornell community and her capacity for leadership through this time of transformation." Sister Mary Fran Wegman, RSM, president of St. James Mercy’s board, added that "Jen has worked extremely hard in the last six months to strengthen St. James Mercy’s relationships with physicians, employees, volunteers, and the community, all of which are critical to implementing the New Vision of health care."
