Felician University announced that Deborah Visconi, the CEO and president of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center, has been appointed to its board of trustees.

“We are very excited to have Deborah Visconi join us in our mission of providing a competitive, value-based college education to a large and diverse student population. The success of Felician University has always rested in our ability to graduate highly skilled, workforce-ready students who go on to make a difference in the businesses and communities they serve,” Jim D’Agostino, chairman of the board, said. “Deb’s vast experience, particularly in the field of health care, will help us accelerate our goals in preparing Felician University graduates for successful employment while satisfying the significant needs of the region, the state and the nation. As an HSI (Hispanic Serving Institution), we also recognize her fine example as a successful Latina leader and are very grateful for the mentorship she has already provided to our students.”

Visconi is credited with significantly strengthening BNBMC’s core services of acute care, behavioral health, addiction treatment and long-term care, and increasing access to primary care and behavioral health care for all Bergen County residents, including historically underserved communities.

In her 30-year career, Visconi previously served as the director of operations for Morristown Medical Center and was senior vice president of executive administration at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. She is the director of New Jersey Hospital Association’s Health PAC and a provider council member of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute while also holding other professional memberships.

“I’m honored to join the Felician board of trustees and support the work the University does as it aligns with the mission and vision of Bergen New Bridge and my passion for education and professional development,” Visconi said.
