Sisters of Charity Health System Welcomes Shannon Fogarty Jerse as Deputy General Counsel

CLEVELAND, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The Sisters of Charity Health System today announces the addition of Shannon Fogarty Jerse to its legal department. Jerse will serve as General Counsel to St. Vincent Charity Hospital in addition to her role as Deputy General Counsel for the health system.

"We are fortunate to have found someone with the breadth of legal expertise that Shannon brings to this new position," says Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, president and CEO of the Sisters of Charity Health System. "Her nearly 20 years as an attorney with other health systems gives her a unique understanding of the issues facing health care today."

Jerse comes to the Sisters of Charity Health System from the Cleveland Clinic where she served as in-house counsel to Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals. Prior to that, she spent eight years as in-house counsel at University Hospitals and as an associate at the Cleveland-based law firm Arter & Hadden.

Attracted by the mission of the Sisters of Charity Health System, Jerse says she welcomes the opportunity to work in a faith-based organization. "I have always wanted to work for St. Vincent Charity Hospital because I feel passionate about the mission," she says. She has been an active member of the Diocese of Cleveland both personally and professionally, having served as a trustee of the Catholic Charities Youth Services Corp. Since 2003, Jerse has been a member of the Diocesan Review Board established under the, "Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse." She is a member of the Holy Cross School Advisory Board and its Endowment Committee and was on the Board and a past Chairman of the Rose Mary Center.

Initially, much of Jerse's work will focus on completing the due diligence as the Sisters of Charity Health System and University Hospitals work toward finalizing the transition in ownership of Mercy Medical Center and St. Vincent Charity Hospital. However, she also will be working on physician contracting, medical staff issues and compliance at St. Vincent Charity Hospital.

A graduate of John Carroll University and Cleveland Marshall College of Law, Jerse has written extensively on end of life decisions, child abuse, medical records and risk management for physicians.

About the Sisters of Charity Health System

The Sisters of Charity Health System was established in 1982 as the parent corporation for the sponsored ministries of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in Ohio and South Carolina. In 1999, Sisters of Charity Health System formed two Ohio not-for-profit corporations with University Hospitals to equally own and operate St. John West Shore Hospital, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, Cuyahoga Physician Network and West Shore Primary Care. Through this equal ownership, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine continue their legacy of high quality, compassionate care that began at the time of the founding of these organizations.

The Sisters of Charity Health System is the sole sponsor of Sisters of Charity Providence Hospitals, a leading cardiovascular center in South Carolina, which includes Providence Hospital/Providence Heart Institute and Providence Hospital Northeast in Columbia, South Carolina. The organization also oversees three grant-making foundations located in Cleveland and Canton, Ohio, and Columbia, SC. Each foundation sponsors significant community initiatives and collaborations that address causes and consequences of poverty.

Other health and human services and education-related organizations within the Sisters of Charity Health System include Cleveland's Joseph's Home, a unique residential care center for homeless men, Canton's Early Childhood Resource Center for people working in childcare in all settings; and Healthy Learners, a South Carolina health care resource for children from low-income families. The Sisters of Charity Health System also provides residential eldercare services at Regina Health Center in Richfield, Ohio, and Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford, Ohio. Light of Hearts Villa is jointly sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati.
