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.

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.
