Donald Kline, president and chief executive officer of Mercy Health - Youngstown, said Seminaro’s proven track record is well-aligned with the current needs of the organization.
“We’re in the midst of a transformative healthcare climate, and it demands the most proactive, innovative financial leadership,” Kline said. “Anthony brings proven experience driving financial performance and delivering against key financial metrics.

Seminaro expressed his excitement about returning to his home state.
“I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to return to help advance the mission of Mercy Health in the Mahoning Valley,” Seminaro said. “Through sustained fiscal responsibility and stewardship, we can continue to invest in this region to enhance access and throughput for our patients. I’m looking forward to helping continue to drive growth and innovation by contributing to a solid operational platform.”
Seminaro succeeds Matthew Love, Mercy Health - Youngstown's CFO since 2012, who has been selected to take on a broader financial leadership role for parent organization Mercy Health.
