Erie’s Chief Operating Officer, Iliana A. Mora, has decided it is the right time in her career to leave Erie and pursue new professional directions. Iliana is the true Erie “success story” – starting as our Manager of Community Relations and Planning and ultimately becoming Erie’s COO. In all of these roles, she has been a trusted colleague, leader and innovator, always eager to collaborate with internal and external partners to best meet our patients’ needs.
In addition, Iliana has led Erie’s growth over the past 10 years – more than doubling Erie’s size to serving almost 70,000 patients, regardless of their ability to pay, while continuing to provide nationally recognized quality care. Iliana’s contributions represent a legacy that continues to benefit Erie today and will serve our patients well for years to come.
Amy Valukas will step into the role as Erie’s new Chief Operating Officer. In this role Amy ensures that Erie is focused on performance outcomes and the achievement of long- and short-term goals within its strategic plan, while adhering to the organization’s mission, vision and values.
Amy brings more than 20 years’ experience in public health programs, administration and leadership. With over 12 years of diverse and increasingly responsible experience at Erie, Amy has a long history of successfully leading large-scale initiatives and expansions as well as broad knowledge of the evolving healthcare landscape.
We wish Iliana the best as she moves on to her next professional challenges, and we congratulate and welcome Amy into her new role!
