Jaros Honored with C-Level Award

Updated: 8/25/2022

Allegra Jaros, president of John R. Oishei Children's Hospital, made this year's list of Buffalo Business First's C-Level Executives. The 11th annual awards recognize Western New York’s most effective business leaders. Jaros and 19 other executives will be honored at an event on October 13.

Including this year’s class, 222 people have been recognized since the C-Level awards began in 2012.

In addition to planning and executing the historic and successful move that saw 125 patients transferred from Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo to Oishei Children's Hospital (OCH) in 2017, Allegra has been instrumental in the evolution of the hospital's operational and business development strategies, resulting in physician recruitment, improvements in quality care delivery, the overall experience for patients, physicians and staff, successful clinical outcomes as well as increased market share and revenue generation.

As a leader, Allegra focuses on listening to employees, providers, patients and families, and empowering everyone to make decisions and make a difference. She recognizes the important role Oishei Children's Hospital plays in the community and collaborates with many organizations throughout the region to positively impact the health, education, safety, accessibility of resources and elimination of barriers for kids and families in our community.

Congratulations on this well-deserved honor!
