WVU Medicine taps hospital CEO

Morgantown, W.Va.-based WVU Medicine has named John Sylvia president and CEO of Grant Memorial Hospital in Petersburg, W.Va. 

Mr. Sylvia has spent the past 13 years serving Bethlehem, Pa.-based St. Luke's University Health Network in a variety of leadership roles — including network vice president of planning and business development, president of one hospital and executive administrator of another. He also serves as an adjunct faculty member in the graduate programs at Bethlehem-based Moravian University, according to a Dec. 21 news release. 

Grant Memorial is owned by the Grant County Commission and operated by the Board of Trustees, but the hospital signed a letter of intent to join the West Virginia University Health System in 2021. Skip Gjolberg, president and CEO of WVU Medicine St. Joseph's Hospital in Buckhannon, has been serving as interim CEO since January. Mr. Sylvia will replace him on Jan. 16.
