Bergen Regional Medical Center, Paramus, N.J., has appointed a nurse — Susan Mendelowitz, RN, MPA, FACHE — as its new president.
Mendelowitz was the acting interim president since the retirement of Joseph Orlando in January and will continue as the facility’s administrator and COO, positions in which she has served since 2005, according to a news release.
“I look forward to continuing to work with the board, medical staff, hospital staff and volunteers of Bergen Regional to ensure that our facility delivers high-quality patient care and fulfills our mission as a safety-net hospital to care for our most vulnerable populations in an ever-changing and challenging reimbursement environment,” Mendelowitz said in the release.
As president, she will assume overall responsibility for the operation of the facility’s 1,070-bed hospital, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs and the long-term care division. She will guide the development and implementation of goals and objectives, quality assurance, regulatory compliance and facility operations.
Before joining BRMC, she was the deputy director of the Bergen County Department of Health Services and was employed at Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, N.J., as CNO and vice president of patient care service. Mendelowitz also has worked at Jersey City’s Christ Hospital in staff development and as director of nursing/medical surgical services.
Mendelowitz has an MPA degree from Rutgers University and a BSN with honors from Rutgers.
