DSFHS President & CEO Elected to the Board of Directors of the Collaborative for Children and Families
TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (July 2015) – Mary J. Zagajeski, MS, RN, President and CEO of Dominican Sisters Family Health Service, was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Collaborative for Children and Families.

The Collaborative for Children and Families (CCF) is a New York State nonprofit comprised of 33 member agencies that serve children and families throughout the five boroughs of New York City and Westchester, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties. The CCF offers comprehensive services to children and families in a more coordinated manner than could be achieved individually. Founded in early 2014, CCF was formed in anticipation of changes in the delivery of health care services to children eligible for New York State’s Medicaid program.

“I am pleased to join the Board of Collaborative Children and Families,” Zagajeski said. “The health needs of children and their families in New York are very important and I’m glad that I can offer my expertise in an effort to help improve the quality of healthcare children receive throughout the state.”

With over 36 years’ experience in the Home Health Care industry, Zagajeski has held executive and managerial positions in home health and hospital systems throughout her career. Zagajeski has a long and distinguished career in nursing which spans over two decades, both in clinical practice and administrative levels. Through her many years of experience, Zagajeski has developed expertise in policy and advocacy leadership with extensive knowledge of Federal and State regulations, Joint Commission standards and other regulatory mandates. Her outstanding managerial skills and talent for working collaboratively provide her with the unique ability to successfully envision a forward moving direction and strategy for the agency, direct operational change through development and implementation of systems and processes. Her skill and expertise lends itself to development of partnerships at every level of the Health Care Continuum.

Zagajeski is a founding member of Cardinal Health Partners, IPA, LLC, a coalition of five (5) member sponsors joining forces to gain scale and leverage in partnership development with Managed Long Term Care Plans. She serves as Director and Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for this corporation. She serves on the Board of Directors and Policy Council Committee of the Home Care Association of New York State (HCANYS). She also serves on the Board of Stony Brook University Hospital’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP), and Westchester Medical Center’s DSRIP Executive Committee. Zagajeski is also a board candidate for the Children’s Collaborative, IPA, New York City.

In May 2012, under Zagajeski’s leadership, DSFHS acquired Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center’s Long Term Home Health Program, providing clinical care to medically fragile children in New York City’s boroughs. Additionally, DSFHS was granted NYSDOH approval for a Certificate of Need (CON) expansion into eight counties broadening the agency’s service area to five boroughs in NYC, Putnam, Rockland, Orange and Nassau Counties.
