CLEARWATER – Rafael “Rafe” Sciullo recently was selected to lead the Suncoast Hospice and its family of programs as president and CEO.

Sciullo succeeds the late Mary J. Labyak, who died in February.

For the past 26 years, Sciullo has been a leader in hospice and palliative care predominantly in the Northeast. Since 2001, he has served as president and CEO of Family Hospice and Palliative Care, Pittsburgh, one of the largest organizations of its kind in Pennsylvania.

“It was critical for us to find someone with a passionate commitment to our patients and families – someone with vision for the future and the ability to lead Suncoast in the era of healthcare reform,” said Kelli Hanley Crabb, board chair, in a press release. “We believe we have found that person in Rafe.”

“Rafe has been a champion of end-of-life care for many years. He is a compassionate, collaborative leader ideally suited to take our organization to the next level,” said Betty Oldanie, who has served as acting president and CEO of Suncoast since Labyak’s death. “I knew Mary and served on a board with her. I have great respect for what she accomplished at Suncoast. Suncoast Hospice is a national leader in hospice and palliative care because of Mary’s drive and commitment to her patients,” Sciullo said. “There is no more important job humans can do for one another than caring for patients at the end of life.”

Sciullo received his undergraduate degree from Duns Scotus College, Southfield, Mich., followed by a master’s degree from the University of San Diego and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Connecticut. He also earned a master’s in healthcare management from the Hartford Graduate Center in Connecticut.
