Posted Date: 5/7/2013
Meadowbrook, PA—May 7, 2013—Lower Gwynedd resident S. Nicholas Lezzi has joined the Holy Redeemer Health System’s Physician and Ambulatory Services Board, which governs the health system’s network of owned physician practices and ambulatory care facilities. He was also named to the governance committee of the health system’s Board of Trustees.
Prior to retiring in 2006, Lezzi held a number of leadership positions over a 35-year career with PECO Energy, including chief of staff to the President/CEO and director of executive and employee compensation. He has been a member of several boards and is currently board chair for Life Laboratory, a non-profit organization that strives to improve health care through research that focuses on the best ways for primary care physicians and their patients to achieve quality, safety, access, and lower-cost healthcare.
“I’m excited to join Holy Redeemer and contribute to the many initiatives the system has undertaken to provide high-quality care,” says Lezzi. “My seven-year affiliation with Life Laboratory has kept me abreast on the issues facing primary care physicians in this country, and now I’m getting the chance to see – and hopefully solve – some of these issues on the hospital side.”
