“It’s an honor to be the largest private employer in Oswego County,” said Michael C. Backus, the hospital’s president and CEO. “It is a responsibility that we take seriously advocating regularly for further investment in healthcare and our regional economy as a whole.
“With so much development on the horizon, Oswego Health is well-positioned to continue growing its footprint as an employer of choice not only in Oswego County, but all of Central New York,” Backus added.
Marq Brown, VP of human resources and chief people officer, said, “Over the last few years, Oswego Health has become a leader in the healthcare space for talent development by building successful talent pipelines that had a direct impact on our ability to attract and retain healthcare workers during the largest healthcare worker shortage of our lifetime. Thanks to strong partnerships between Oswego Health and local educational facilities, these pipelines will continue to produce amazing healthcare talent, paving the way for us to provide high-quality care to our friends, neighbors and family members for many years to come.”
“It is a great honor to be the largest private employer in Oswego County,” said Chief Nursing Officer Katie Pagliaroli. “Investing in people has allowed us to meet our mission of providing accessible, quality care and improving the health of the residents in our community. ‘We care’ is a mantra we use — and that extends to our workforce and patients alike.”
