6: Tony Lombardi
Today’s guest is Tony Lombardi. Tony is a true Healthcare Leader — he had the remarkable ability to be years ahead of his time and to foresee how the marketplace was evolving before many of his peers. He understood the need for reduced duplication of services and consolidation of hospitals prior to the market. He led the consolidation of two hospitals in 1972. Yes, you read that correctly–1972.
One of his successes was leading a Community Needs Assessment and Community Health organization called MATCH (Mon Vale Advances Total Community Health). Take a look at this article from 1997!
Tony served on the boards or committees of:
- American Hospital Association
- Hospital & Health System Association of Pennsylvania
- Board chair of Healthcare Council of Western Pennsylvania
He worked at Monongahela Valley Hospital for 40+ years and has been working in the Healthcare field since the age of 16!
