Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Adds Former Hospital CEO & GC Jerry Fedele to Healthcare Section

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney welcomes Jerry Fedele as of counsel to its Healthcare section. Fedele, a healthcare executive and lawyer who served as president and CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital from 2008 to 2019, will work with Buchanan’s healthcare and healthcare-related clients to help bridge the gap between their legal and operational needs.

He subsequently became general counsel for the West Penn Allegheny Health System (WPAHS). Fedele became WPAHS’s CEO in 2003 and served until 2007. In 2008, he took charge of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and transformed and expanded its services, introduced graduate medical education, and grew community confidence and revenue from $350 million to $550 million as he led the transformation of the hospital to an academic tertiary regional referral medical center.
Fedele holds the positions of Executive in Residence and faculty member at Lynn University and serves on the Board of Visitors at the University of Pittsburgh Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration. He earned a bachelor’s in mathematics and a master’s in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh, and a juris doctor from Duquesne University, where he was class valedictorian.
