Cleveland, OH – (January 19, 2017)—St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, Cleveland’s downtown hospital, has expanded its board of directors and elected new board leadership beginning January 1, 2017.

Robert W. Varley has been elected as Board Chair by the governing committee. He assumes the leadership position held for more than 10 years by Melvin G. Pye, Jr. Varley, retired earlier this year as Managing Director, State and Local Affairs at Dominion Resources Services, Inc. A member of St. Vincent Charity’s board since 2010, he also serves on the board of Cuyahoga County Public Library and The Leadership Center.

“I believe there is a place for Catholic health care in our city,” said Varley. He sees opportunities for St. Vincent Charity to lead not only in addressing the opiate crisis, but also in meeting the needs of the downtown community through its expanding relationship with Cleveland State University.

Board leadership also includes, Mary Lou Stricklin as Vice Chair; Jeff Weaver, Executive Vice President & Group Head of Credit Portfolio Management at KeyBank as Treasurer; and Brent Buckley, of Buckley King as Secretary.

 “We are grateful for the many years of service that Mel Pye has given to St. Vincent Charity Medical Center,” said Dr. David F. Perse, president and CEO of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, about the outgoing chair. “I’m confident that Bob’s leadership and the fresh perspectives of new members will add tremendous value to our efforts and I look forward to working with them.”
