D’Alessandro will join recently appointed President Donald Seiple in leading the new campus, the seventh hospital of St. Luke’s University Health Network.

“Our employees are very excited about our new hospital and as a result, many well qualified candidates applied for this position,” Seiple says. “Jill was selected because of her track record of delivering high patient and employee satisfaction and her commitment to continuously improving patient care. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather join me in bringing the high quality patient care for which St. Luke’s is known to the residents of the Monroe County region.”

A graduate of East Stroudsburg University, D’Alessandro has worked at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem since 2004, when she enrolled in St. Luke’s School of Nursing to pursue her passion of helping others through a career in nursing. She began as a patient care assistant and after graduating, as a staff nurse, clinical coordinator and finally, patient care manager.

“I’m honored. Being selected to lead patient care services of a new hospital is an opportunity very few people are privileged to experience,” D’Alessandro says. “I am especially excited because it is located in Monroe County, where I have always found the community to be warm and welcoming.” D’Alessandro attended East Stroudsburg University, where she obtained a degree in movement studies and exercise science. Also, she worked for five years as head athletic trainer for the Stroudsburg School District.

“I’m eager to work with the new staff that we will recruit and the physicians who already serve the region, but most importantly, I look forward to bringing our patients the comprehensive and advanced patient care services that a large network like St. Luke’s Health Network can provide,” she says.
