SJEH Names Franco HR Director
Roger A. Franco has been appointed the Director of Human Resources at St. John's Episcopal Hospital. Franco will be responsible for all human resources functions of the hospital, including overseeing recruitment, labor relations and regulatory compliance. He has also been charged with playing a key role in the hospital's Service Excellence and Core Values initiative, which was developed by an open hospital committee that included a wide range of departments and personnel and is working to encourage all staff to adopt it as a work ethic.
"I'll be helping the hospital's leadership instill our core values in our present staff," said Franco. "I'll seek to recruit new employees who are not only clinically talented, but can also provide excellent customer service." Franco comes to St. John's from Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, where he was Director of Employee and Labor Relations since 2002. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from State University of New York College at Old Westbury.
