Senior Leadership Team

undefinedMichael Harlovic
President and CEO for Oswego Health

Serving as Oswego Health’s President and CEO is Michael A. Harlovic, who joined the health system in July 2017.

In this leadership role, he oversees the strategic, executive and operational guidance for the Oswego Health System, which includes Oswego Hospital, The Manor at Seneca Hill, Springside at Seneca Hill, Oswego Health Home Care, and Physician Care, P.C. The healthcare leader has services and programs conveniently located throughout Oswego County, providing care to more than 120,000 residents. 

Michael has 31 years of healthcare experience. He began his healthcare career as a registered nurse and steadily advanced through the years to the position of President and CEO of Allegheny General Hospital, located in Pittsburgh. The hospital is one of eight hospitals located in western Pennsylvania and New York that are a part of the Highmark Health, a vertical integrated diverse health services company, offering insurance and other health-related services to individuals in 50 states. 

He spent much of his career, 21 years, at Allegheny Valley Hospital, a 200-bed facility, where he was recognized for his patient experience initiatives, financial oversight and the development of innovative programs that recruited and retained physicians and staff. His time at Allegheny Valley benefits Oswego Health, as the two organizations are somewhat similar in terms of service area size, the number of employees, outpatient services and the distance to a larger city.

Michael earned both his Bachelor and Masters of Science in Nursing degrees from the University of Pittsburgh. He holds a professional certificate in executive leadership from The Wharton School, located in Philadelphia.
