A former New York City hospital executive from Long Island has been named executive director of Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital.
Anthony Alfano will serve as vice president and executive director of the former Sound Shore Hospital, which declared bankruptcy and was acquired earlier this month by Montefiore Health System.
Alfano was hired by Montefiore in October. Before that, he was chief operating officer of New York Downtown Hospital, which merged with New York Presbyterian over the summer.
No leader has been named yet for Mount Vernon Hospital, which was also sold in the nearly $60 million Sound Shore bankruptcy deal.
Montefiore president and CEO Dr. Steven Safyer has said that he wants to run the two Westchester hospitals separately unlike the Sound Shore system, which ran the Mount Vernon and New Rochelle facilities as one network.
Susan Green-Lorenzen, a registered nurse and senior vice president of Montefiore is running the day-to-day operation of the Mount Vernon hospital.
John Spicer, who served as chief executive of the Sound Shore system, has been hired as a consultant during the transition for an undetermined amount of time.
Alfano has both a bachelor of science and master of science degree in administration from Long Island University. He lives in Huntington, N.Y.
