AMRPA names Anthony Cuzzola as Board Chairman
National medical rehabilitation leader looks to continue the mission of the association

(WASHINGTON January 26, 2021) – Anthony Cuzzola, Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute, has assumed the role of chair of the board of the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA). A long-time member of the AMRPA Board of Directors, Cuzzola looks forward to his new position in advancing the goals of both the association and the medical rehabilitation field in general through education and advocacy.

Cuzzola previously served as vice chair of the AMRPA board. During his tenure, AMRPA will continue to address the lingering challenges of 2020 while focusing on the year ahead.

Restarting AMRPA’s series of free COVID-19 informational calls, Cuzzola has already implemented his first tactic as chair. These calls are open to the public and often feature guests from member hospitals across the nation to provide insight on specific issues and protocols surrounding the coronavirus.

“The medical rehabilitation challenges of 2020, especially in regard to the pandemic, have not subsided in the new year,” Cuzzola said. “As the public health emergency continues to evolve, AMRPA will continue to break down barriers in access to care and make sure our members have the latest information on policy, operations and – most importantly – patient care.”

AMRPA Executive Director John Ferraro expressed his confidence in Cuzzola’s ability to lead the association, saying, “During his time on the board of directors, Anthony Cuzzola has repeatedly demonstrated a genuine commitment to the association and contributed greatly to AMRPA’s goals. We are thrilled to have him assume the responsibilities of chair and know his expertise will continue to push the association forward.”

Cuzzola currently leads the operations of Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute in Edison, New Jersey, as vice president. His U.S. News & World Report-ranked facility has served New Jersey and the surrounding areas for almost 50 years, and provides specialty programs for stroke rehabilitation, cardiac distress, women’s health, pediatric care, orthopedics and sports injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and more.
