Staten Island, NY -- The North Shore-LIJ Health System has announced the appointment of Anthony C. Ferreri as Executive Vice President with new responsibilities as the system’s Chief Affiliation Officer and Regional Executive Director for Westchester.
Mr. Ferreri, who has served as Staten Island University Hospital’s president and CEO since 2003, and as Executive Director of the North Shore Health System’s Western Region since 2013, is now in position to oversee and coordinate an increasing number of current and new health system partnerships, the most recent being Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY, the Barnabas Health System in New Jersey and Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Florida. Additionally, a letter of intent has been with Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY.
“Active management of these relationships is essential to ensure meaningful outcomes and our ongoing success,” said Michael J. Dowling, North Shore-LIJ Health System president and CEO.
In his new capacity, Mr. Ferreri will also serve as Regional Executive Director for Westchester, a natural expansion of his work in securing the relationships with Phelps Memorial Hospital Center and Northern Westchester Hospital. The two Westchester County hospitals are now full members of the health system. Mr. Ferreri will continue to oversee the integration of these facilities and also have oversight of all of health system activities in the Westchester Region.
A lifelong Staten Islander, Mr. Ferreri recently earned Modern HealthCare Magazine’s Community Leadership Award. To his credit, he was at the helm of Staten Island’s largest hospital and employer through major expansion resulting in the hospital’s new emergency facility, the Elizabeth A. Connelly Emergency and Trauma Center opened in 2009. After the premature death of a young physician, he helped realize her dream in the completion of the globally connected Regina M. McGinn, MD Education Center in 2011.
As a leader driving a sustained focus on quality of care, Staten Island University Hospital earned national recognition in an impressive number of prominent quality studies. These include top placement in all 6 years of the federal government’s CMS quality incentive demonstration project, resulting in the highest number of quality awards of any hospital in the United States, as well as numerous awards bestowed by the Joint Commission, the American Heart Association and others.

Ferreri received his Bachelor of Arts from Wagner College and his Master of Science Degree in Human Resources and Industrial Relations from Rutgers University, and is currently in the final stage of completing his doctorate dissertation.

Mr. Ferreri is a board and executive committee member of the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation. In 2011, Mayor Michael Bloomberg appointed Mr. Ferreri to the board of the New York City Industrial Development Agency.
