PRLog - Jul. 6, 2011 - OCEANSIDE, N.Y. -- South Nassau Communities Hospital President and CEO Joseph A. Quagliata was recently named a recipient of the prestigious Reverend Monsignor Thomas J. Hartman Award, which is given annually by the Advancement for Commerce, Industry & Technology (ACIT).

Mr. Quagliata was presented the award in recognition of his long-term dedication and commitment to ensuring that South Nassau provides the highest quality of health care services in an ethical, responsible, and caring manner to a diverse community.

“I am humbled to receive an award that was established to honor a man who is the epitome of selflessness, leadership and wisdom and is given by an organization that is led by first-class, accomplished business leaders,” said Mr. Quagliata.

ACIT has been serving and supporting the needs of Long Island businesses for forty-five years. The organization represents hundreds of businesses across all spectrums of industry, asset size, and business lifecycle (i.e. start-ups, growing businesses, maturing businesses, etc.) and provides an extensive program of educational services and networking events that are designed to impart knowledge and develop business connections.

Mr. Quagliata was named president and CEO of South Nassau Communities Hospital in October 1998.  He started his career at South Nassau in 1973, when he was appointed Chief Financial Officer, a position he held until his appointment as president and CEO.  South Nassau is one of Long Island’s largest and busiest community hospitals, with 435 beds, more than 875 physicians and 2,800 employees.

Mr. Quagliata has been an advocate for hospitals on Long Island for more than 30 years and is recognized for his leadership in shaping the future of healthcare in the region.  He is Immediate Past Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS).  HANYS is the only statewide advocate for more than 550 non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other health care organizations throughout New York State.  He is also a Past Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council, a body that comprises the chief executives of the 23 not-for-profit and public hospitals on Long Island.  He also served on the Long Island Regional Advisory Committee of the New York State Commission on Health Care Facilities in the 21st Century (also known as the Berger Commission).  Additional industry roles include past President and Advanced Member of the Metropolitan New York Chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association.

He has been a fervent supporter of Long Island Blood Services throughout the years and, due to his dedication, is in part responsible for the increase in much-needed blood donations on Long Island.  Mr. Quagliata is also a champion of programs to help combat breast cancer and is a member of the inaugural class of inductees to the 1-in-9 Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition Hewlett House Hall of Fame.  He is also responsible for spearheading South Nassau Communities Hospital’s 5K Breast Cancer Run/Walk that attracts more than 1,500 participants annually.

Numerous organizations have honored Mr. Quagliata for his enduring commitment to ensuring the quality and vitality of healthcare services on Long Island and in New York.  This includes Honoree of the Queens-Long Island Chapter of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPIQLI); School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc.
