Oswego Native Karen Scaff has been named Oswego Health’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Springside at Seneca Hill.

Scaff arrives with a strong background in finance, property management and interpersonal skills. “It is an honor and privilege to be selected for this position,” Scaff said. “This multi-faceted position allows me to use my human resource, marketing and finance experiences. I have also heard wonderful things about the residents and staff, which of course, is an important aspect of the job.”

After living and working in Atlanta, Georgia for nearly 15 years, Scaff returned to Oswego last year. She most recently worked as a practice and property manager at the Lake Ontario Property Associates, in Oswego. Previously, she was a retirement services manager for McCamish Systems, an Infosys Company and a benefits specialist for Aon Consulting, both located in Atlanta.

While living and working in Atlanta, Scaff earned her master’s of business administration degree from Georgia State’s J.M. Robinson College of Business. Scaff obtained her bachelor’s degree from SUNY Cortland.

“Karen possesses a strong skill set for this position,” said Oswego Health President and CEO Ann C. Gilpin. “She is already forming wonderful relationships with Springside’s residents and has the necessary business background that the position requires. We are very pleased to have Karen leading our Springside staff.”

Scaff replaces longtime Oswego Health Vice President and Springside COO Teresa Ferlito, who retired April 30th. To ensure a smooth transition, Ferlito is working alongside Scaff during her initial weeks on the job.
