Join us in congratulating our very own Dr. Nora OBrien-Suric on her new position at the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York as president.
Following a comprehensive national search, the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York today named Dr. OBrien-Suric, as its new president.
Dr. OBrien-Suric will succeed Ann F. Monroe, who retired at the end of 2016 after 13 years as president of the Health Foundation. She will officially join the Health Foundation in February and at that time will be formally introduced to the community.
“We are so very pleased to welcome Nora to the Health Foundation and to the communities that we serve in Western and Central New York. We had a well-prepared Search Committee and a process in place that allowed us to consider many wonderfully qualified candidates for the position. Nora stood out for us as a professional with the expertise, compassion and drive to help the Foundation staff and Board take the great legacy and numerous accomplishments left to us by Ann Monroe forward to meet our mission in this evolving and challenging health care environment,” Board of Trustees Chair Joseph J. Cozzo said.
As a senior program officer at The John A. Hartford Foundation, OBrien-Suric developed programs to improve care for older adults across the country. Among her accomplishments, she envisioned and developed the multi-million dollar grant that created the National Aging and Disability Business Center, a multi-site national initiative that involves the Administration for Community Living, the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, the American Society on Aging, the Independent Living Research Utilization and The SCAN Foundation, along with other non-profit collaboratives and philanthropic organizations, in providing training and assistance for community-based providers to partner with health care organizations.
