Jeremiah Sweet Named CFO, Interim President & CEO at Oneida Health

Oneida Health recently announced that Chief Financial Officer Jeremiah Sweet will also serve as interim president and chief executive officer effective June 1. He succeeds Jonathan Schiller, who left the organization at the end of May.

Oneida Health’s board of directors began a nationwide search for Oneida Health’s next president and CEO in February following Schiller’s announcement. The board anticipated filling the role with a candidate sometime in the fall.

“During this process, we have been able to attract a number of very qualified candidates already for the president and CEO position,” said Michael Kallet, board chairman. “Between our reputation for quality care, breadth of services and our independence as a not-for-profit healthcare organization, we are a very desirable destination. We will be able to take our pick from some of the nation’s top talent.”

Sweet joined Oneida Health as CFO in 2017 after working many years at the Bassett Healthcare Network.

“Since his entry into the organization Jeremiah has contributed greatly to the continued success of Oneida Health as a regional healthcare provider,” said Kallet. “His competence, collegiality and willingness to go above and beyond have earned him the respect of all of us here at Oneida Health during his tenure. We can all take comfort in knowing that the organization will be in very capable hands as this process concludes.”

Sweet will retain his authority as chief financial officer during the transition.
