Sciarro named chief operating officer of University Hospital

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Jason R. Sciarro has been named chief operating officer of University Hospital. The appointment, effective June 1, was announced by Philip S. Schaengold, J.D., interim executive director of University Hospital.

Sciarro joins Chief Nursing Officer Ann Sedore, Ph.D., and Chief Financial Officer Thomas Donovan as members of the hospital’s senior leadership team. Sciarro’s appointment continues the realignment of the hospital’s administrative structure that was announced earlier this year. Under the new administrative structure, Sciarro will oversee the hospital’s five associate administrators who represent various departments within the hospital.

Sciarro, (pronounced SHY-row) an associate administrator at University Hospital since 1997, has played a key leadership role in hospital operations, such as the development of the hospital’s Orthopedic Service Line, including a redesigned total joint replacement center. In addition, Sciarro has implemented various new care options for patients in the hospital’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation service, including a comprehensive outpatient brain injury program. He also has led the development of clinical practices at the Institute of Human Performance, and provides administrative oversight of the all emergency preparedness activities for the hospital.

“Jason is an experienced and competent administrator who understands the rigors of academic medicine and how that benefits our organization,” said Schaengold. “In his service to University Hospital, Jason has a stellar record of success leading some of the hospital’s busiest, most cost-effective departments. His keen insight and understanding of the most complex hospital and health care issues have been an extraordinary benefit to University Hospital.”

Prior to joining University Hospital, Sciarro served as an administrator with Marriot Health Care Services at Garden City Hospital in Garden City, Mich., (1993-1997) and Elyria Memorial Regional Medical Center in Elyria, Ohio (1992-1993).

Sciarro earned a bachelor’s degree from Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pa., and a master’s of business administration from LeMoyne College.

Sciarro’s community activities include membership on the board of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York (he currently serves as chairman). He is a member of the Leadership Greater Syracuse Class of 2003 and a recipient of the 2003 Syracuse 40 under 40 Leadership Award.

Sciarro resides in Jamesville, N.Y., with his wife, Amy, and their two children, Courtney and Nathan.
