  • UTICA — The Mohawk Valley Health System has announced its new team of senior managers.
    The system was created when Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare and St. Elizabeth Medical Center entered into an affiliation in March. The leadership teams at each hospital have been dismantled in favor of one centralized team.
    “Combining the leadership teams from Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare and St. Elizabeth Medical Center was not a process that was taken lightly,” said Scott H. Perra, selected as president and chief executive officer of the health system before the affiliation went into effect. “Much time and thought was put into building a leadership team for … that has the skills and knowledge required to create an exceptional, high-quality system for our region.”
    Seniors managers who didn’t get jobs on the new team have either switched to different positions or retired, a spokeswoman said.
    Varinya Sheppard, formerly vice president and chief nursing officer at St. Elizabeth, will take over as president of the St. Elizabeth College of Nursing after the current President Marian Kovatchitch retires at the end of the school year.
    Here are the members of health system management:
    • President/CEO: Scott Perra.
    • Senior vice president, chief financial officer: Louis Aiello.
    • Senior vice president, chief medical officer — St. Elizabeth: Dr. Albert D’Accurzio.
