Anthony Scibelli named new Fairview Hospital leader

“Fairview has an outstanding reputation as a hospital and as a community partner,” said soon-to-be Fairview Vice President Anthony Scibelli. “I am excited to be joining such a dedicated team and look forward to working together to further enhance the important role that Fairview Hospital plays within the community’s system of care.”

Great Barrington — Berkshire Health Systems (BHS) has announced that Anthony Scibelli has been named a system vice president and the chief operating officer of BHS’s award-winning Fairview Hospital following a months-long, nation-wide search. Scibelli, currently the vice president of operations and chief administrative officer at Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton, Mass., will begin his new leadership role at Fairview in early September. Fairview Interim Vice President Emmett Schuster will be present to support the hospital during the transitional period.

“Fairview Hospital plays an integral role in making South County a better, healthier place for all—something we are very proud to support and celebrate,” said BHS President and CEO Darlene Rodowicz. “It was important to our system that we appoint a thoughtful and dedicated leader who can guide our five-star Fairview Hospital during this pivotal time in healthcare, when we are facing ever-greater challenges and ever-greater opportunities.”

Alec Belman, MD, chief of staff at Fairview and member of the search committee, explained, “Tony stood out among a competitive group of candidates, not only for his deep expertise in hospital operations and administration, but also for his collaborative and dynamic leadership style.”

Doreen Hutchinson, RN, vice president and chief nurse at Fairview, added, “We are thrilled that, with Tony, we have found a healthcare leader whose experience, knowledge, and skills are a perfect match for Fairview Hospital.”

For the past 10 years, Scibelli has served as vice president of operations and chief administrative officer at Cooley Dickinson Health Care in Northampton. Previously, he held several senior leadership positions with Utica, N.Y.-based Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare, eventually becoming senior vice president of Human Resources, Support Services and Post-Acute Operations following a merger with Mohawk Valley Health Systems.

“Fairview has an outstanding reputation as a hospital and as a community partner,” said Scibelli. “I am excited to be joining such a dedicated team and look forward to working together to further enhance the important role that Fairview Hospital plays within the community’s system of care.”

Scibelli is no stranger to the Berkshire region, having earned a master of business administration at SUNY University of Albany. He has a master of science in training and development from Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass., and a Bachelor’s Degree from Worcester State University. He serves as an adjunct instructor at Elms College. In the community, Scibelli is an active volunteer and board member with organizations including the Lighthouse School, the Franklin and Hampshire County Regional Employment Board, Greenfield Community College, and the Northampton Survival Center.
