St. Vincent Charity Medical Center extends our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Valeria Harper, chief executive officer at the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Valeria on Wednesday, January 10.

“St. Vincent Charity Medical Center has worked with Valeria Harper for many years in her different roles at the ADAMHS board.  Her contributions to the field of mental health and addiction services are many.  Her leadership will be truly missed,” said Dr. David Perse, CEO of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. 

Valeria was a tremendous asset to the residents of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, greatly helping those living with mental illness and recovering from addiction, as well as being an advocate for those whose voices needed to be heard.  She was a remarkable leader and friend,” said Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, congregational leader of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine.

Valeria recently said, “When we come together, we can make greatness happen.” She lived this motto every day, and we couldn’t agree with her more.
