MSLC Named Among Fortune's Best Workplaces in Health Care and Bio Pharma for the second year in a row



Newburgh, NY – Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall (MSLC) is pleased to announce that Daniel J. Maughan, RN, MSN, MBA, FNP-C, has been named President of the organization. Mr. Maughan will continue working closely as President & Chief Operating Officer (COO) with MSLC’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joan Cusack-Mcguirk, who will retire from MSLC at the end of this year. Ms. Cusack-McGuirk’s career spans more than 40 years, most of which has been in service to the community she has cared for and the hospital she has led since 2015.

Mr. Maughan’s new title went into effect on January 1, 2021, as the hospital focuses on continued growth and expansion in addition to continuing to care for its patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Dan’s leadership and experience contributes greatly to the continued evolvement of Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall,” said Joan Cusack-McGuirk, President and CEO. “Dan has a true understanding of the transformational shift that is occurring in the realm of healthcare delivery and I look forward to the road ahead as we work to expand MSLC programs and services to best meet the evolving medical needs of our community.”

Mr. Maughan has been instrumental in MSLC’s transformation in recent years. These transformations include leading the efforts that brought MSLC to its first ever Certification and Designation as a Level III Trauma Center, spearheading MSLC’s response to the Opioid Epidemic, ensuring that the community had access to Medication Assisted Treatment. Additionally, Mr. Maughan was responsible for securing grant funding for expansion on both the Newburgh and Cornwall campus from the NYSDOH as part of the Statewide Healthcare Facility Transformation Program. On the Newburgh campus, the MRI Suite and Emergency Department renovation project was completed late last year, and in the coming weeks, MSLC will soon be opening a 10-bed Observation Unit. An Expanded Primary Care site is set to open in the days ahead on the Cornwall campus, adding to the list of multispecialty practices already offered at MSLC’s outpatient campus.

Cusack-McGuirk stated, “Dan continues to have his finger on the pulse of healthcare as well as our community hospital. Most recently, Mr. Maughan has been leading the charge on MSLC’s COVID-19 vaccination program. In just three weeks, MSLC has vaccinated over 2,000 individuals including employees and eligible frontline workers. The MSLC team remains focused on the battle against COVID-19 and continuing to meet the growing needs of the communities it is privileged to serve.”

Mr. Maughan’s nursing and leadership career spans more than 30 years, mostly within the hospital setting as a nurse, nurse practitioner and healthcare leader. Mr. Maughan and his family have resided in Newburgh for more than 20 years.
