Posted on: June 11th, 2018

Blustein, Shapiro, Rich & Barone, LLP has announced Partner Austin F. DuBois’s appointment to the St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital (SLCH) Board of Trustees. DuBois’s appointment was unanimous by SLCH board members.

Mr. DuBois, the youngest attorney ever named partner at BSR&B, helps people protect their assets from nursing home and long-term care costs, designs and implements complex and high net worth estate plans, and is general counsel to a select group of businesses.

“Austin is an inspirational leader who has always given back to his community,” said BSR&B Partner Richard J. Shapiro, head of the firm’s Estate Planning and Elder Law Department. “I have no doubt he will apply the same attitude toward decisions made for the greater good of St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, and further enhance the expertise of the SLCH Board of Trustees.”

DuBois is a member of WealthCounsel, ElderCounsel, and the New York State Bar Association Elder Law and Trusts & Estates sections. He is a cum laude graduate of SUNY Fredonia and received his J.D. degree from Rutgers University School of Law at Camden. He also received his LL.M. degree in taxation, with a focus in estate and business planning, from Temple University Law School.

In addition to St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, Mr. DuBois serves on various civic and charitable boards of directors, such as Inspire and the Inspire Foundation, the Orange County Partnership for Economic Development, Pattern for Progress, and the City of Newburgh Industrial Development Agency.

“It’s a great personal honor to be appointed to the St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital Board of Trustees,” said Mr. DuBois. “My mother Barbara is a lifelong nurse, and my grandfather, Middletown attorney Bill Fitzgerald, served on the board at Horton Memorial Hospital. I look forward to following in their footsteps to serve the Newburgh community through St. Luke’s.”

With the appointment of Mr. DuBois, SLCH’s Board of Trustees consists of 15 members, including: Geoffrey Brackett, chairman; David Potack, vice chairman; Kevin White, secretary; Anthony Campagiorni; Christopher Catania; Nick Citeria; Susan Green-Lorenzen; Glen Heller; Thomas Kennedy; Jeff Menkes; Roberto Padilla; John Pelella; Michelle Rider; and Mary Ellen Rogulski.
