Wed, Jan 3rd 2024 10:10 am

The Hospice and Palliative Care Group (HPCG) board of directors has announced President and CEO John Lomeo will step down effective July 31.

Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer Carlo Figliomeni – who has been with the organization for 18 years – will be promoted to the president and CEO position on Aug. 1.

A press release stated, “Lomeo joined the organization in 2000 and, over the course of 24 years, established Niagara Hospice as a national leader in end-of-life care. He built Niagara Hospice House that became a model for other hospices nationwide. He established complementary businesses to support the mission of caring, such as Kalos Health and Liberty Home Care.

“In 2000, the organization was caring for 40 patients per day. In 2024, the organization is caring for over 1,200 patients throughout all the counties of WNY.”

The HPCG provides administrative services to Niagara Hospice, Kalos Health, Liberty Home Care, Hospice of Orleans and The Niagara Hospice Alliance.

 “It has been my honor and privilege to serve this organization and the community,” Lomeo said. “Throughout my career, I have tried to make a difference in people’s lives, I hope that will be my legacy. I would like to personally thank every employee, past and present, for taking this journey with me. To my board members: Thank you for supporting me and our vision to improve health care throughout WNY. Together, we answered the call of duty.”

Patricia L. Evans said, “When John Lomeo retires in July of 2024 he will be leaving behind a secure organization that has expanded, shown exponential growth and demonstrated exceptional quality of care. The community and the thousands of people served have been the beneficiaries of John’s leadership, foresight, vision, brilliant business acumen and deep compassion. As a primary founder of Niagara Hospice, I would add that John Lomeo not only fulfilled the hopes and dreams we had for hospice care, he exceeded them. On behalf of the Niagara Hospice board of directors, I thank John for his incredible journey with us over the past 24 years.”
