The Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake announced the appointment of three new trustees recently.
Charles P. Carroll, Jeannie Cross, and Dr. Richard Moccia joined the board earlier this year.
AMC is one of the region's largest health care facilities and serves the greater Tri-Lakes region. The hospital's board of trustees is responsible for striking a balance between fiscal responsibility and maintaining necessary health care services.
The board consists of 14 community members who serve on a volunteer basis. AMC spokesman Joe Riccio says each member brings their own individual expertise to the table.
Stan Urban is serving as chairman of the board for 2011. He's been a trustee since 2007.
AMC President and CEO Chandler Ralph says the organization is "fortunate" to have a diverse board of trustees that stands ready to take on the many challenges faced by the health care industry.
Charles Carroll is a consultant with 38 years of experience in information technology. In 2008, he retired from his position as senior vice president of AXA Technology Services.
He lives with his wife at their home in Loon Lake and also serves on the boards of the Saranac Lake Voluntary Health Association and Pendragon Theatre. Carroll also belongs to the advisory council of the Adirondack Community Trust.
Jeannie Cross has some 20 years of experience in health care advocacy and association management. She currently serves as vice president of government affairs for the Metropolitan Jewish Health System in Brooklyn.
Cross is well-connected in Albany, having spent significant time lobbying on behalf of health care providers in New York. She lives in Keene with her husband.
Finally, Dr. Richard Moccia (MOE-SHA) joins the board after nearly two decades as medical director of AMC's Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging.
Prior to joining the staff at AMC, he was an attending radiologist at Finger Lakes Health System in Geneva and Waterloo. He lives in Lake Placid with his wife.
The board of trustees also includes: Susan M. Delehanty, Vice Chair; John Hopkinson, Ph.D, Secretary/Treasurer; Laurie Bergamini, Ph.D; John Broderick, M.D.; Barry Brogan; Rev. Carlos Caguiat (CAG-E-AT); Julie Connors; Joan Kelly; Edward H. Roetman; and Mary Sparks.
