Francis J. Giantomasi Named 2021 Health Care Influencer by ROI-NJ

Francis J. Giantomasi, a Member with Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC’s (“CSG”) Redevelopment, Land Use & Zoning Group and CSG Executive Committee member, has been named among ROI-NJ’s 2021 Health Care Influencers in his capacity as Chair of the Board of Trustees of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey (“NBIMC”).

NBIMC, as well as the larger RWJ Barnabas Health System, have benefitted from Frank’s vision and steady-handed leadership over course of the pandemic and in navigating the road to recovery. Drawing on his statewide real estate development practice, experiences and deep influence within the sector, Frank has been one of the leading minds behind Newark Beth’s ambitious “Newark Strong” renovation project, which is currently underway and positioned to change the face of the city’s South Ward.

Already a mainstay within ROI-NJ’s Real Estate Influencers and Power Lists, this year marks Frank’s debut in the Health Care category.

As ROI-NJ puts it, “What is one of the state’s top land-use and real estate attorneys in Newark and Essex County doing on the health care list? That’s easy: Giantomasi is chairman of the board of trustees of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey — and is helping it navigate a $150 million expansion that will help it further connect with the community it serves.”

Outside of his involvement with NBIMC, Frank has been previously recognized by the Arthritis Foundation and Pillar Care Continuum (formerly Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey) with the organizations’ Health Champion of the Year (2016) and Man of the Year (2014) awards, respectively.
