Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Fall 2019 - 43

Jillian Ventuzelo, DO
The Berks County Medical Society congratulates our President-Elect, Dr. Jillian Ventuzelo, on her
selection as one of PAMED's Top Physicians Under 40 for 2019. She was selected for this honor upon
being nominated by colleagues and then considered by a state-wide committee of PAMED members.
Dr. Ventuzelo graduated with honors from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2015
and trained in Family Medicine at Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center. Upon completion
of her training, she joined the St. Joseph Medical Group, Spring Ridge, in the practice of Family
Medicine.
Dr. Ventuzelo took time while still in her residency training years to join the BCMS Executive
Council as a Resident Physician representative. She has served as a Delegate to the annual business
meeting of PAMED, the House of Delegates, and as Chair of our 2019 Residents' Day and Memorial
Lecture event. In the spring of 2019, she was installed as our President-Elect. Dr. Ventuzelo's
appreciation for the importance of physician organizations in promoting and protecting the practice
of medicine definitely distinguishes her as a Top Doctor of any age. We congratulate her in being
selected for this award and look forward to her continued contributions to our profession.

Charles F. Barbera, MD, MBA, FACEP
The Berks County Medical Society congratulates member Dr. Chuck Barbera for his recent
appointment to the role of Vice President, Pre-Hospital and Unscheduled Care for Tower Health.
Dr. Barbera has long served as Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Reading Hospital/

Pennsylvania, with over 133,000 visits. Accreditation as a Level II Trauma Center was earned in
2005, with advancement to Level 1 Trauma Center in 2018. In July of 2018, the Department of
Emergency Medicine welcomed the first group of graduate physicians to its new Emergency Medicine
residency training program, and in early 2019 it celebrated the opening of a state-of-the-art facility
designed specifically for pediatric patients, the James and Deborah Radwanski Pediatric Emergency
Department.
Dr. Barbera is a graduate of Alvernia University, earned his MBA at Alvernia, and serves on its
Board of Trustees. He received Alvernia's 'Most Notable Alumni' award for mission work in Ethiopia,
where he assisted in the opening of the country's only trauma center. He is an alumnus of Temple
University School of Medicine and trained in Emergency Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University
Hospital. He is Past President of the Pennsylvania College of Emergency Physicians, and is currently
a candidate for a Master's in Public Health at George Washington University. His many accolades
include the Caron Foundation Jasper G. Chen See Healthcare Professional Award for his work to
address substance abuse, which has included development of a Psychiatric Emergency Department
and institution of the Warm Handoff program in the Emergency Department.
The Berks County Medical Society is proud to count Dr. Barbera among its past presidents, and
wishes him continued success in his new role.
