Joanne Conroy, MD, Named CEO, President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock

Physician and Dartmouth College alumna Joanne Mather Conroy D '77 has been named chief executive officer and president of Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health.

"Dr. Joanne Conroy is an excellent choice to lead the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system," said President Phil Hanlon D '77. "A thriving partnership between the medical center and Dartmouth is important to our shared success. I am pleased to welcome Dr. Conroy back to the Upper Valley community and look forward to working with her."

Conroy received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. An anesthesiologist, she has received a number of awards and honors, including being named one of the "top 25 Women in Healthcare" by Modern Healthcare magazine and one of the "130 Women Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know" in 2015 and 2016 by Becker's Hospital Review.

"Coming back to New Hampshire is like a homecoming for me," says Conroy. "It will be wonderful to be back in a place I love, but more wonderful still to have the privilege of serving an organization I've long admired as a leader in patient-centered care and the evolution of care delivery.

"Dartmouth-Hitchcock combines the best of medical skill, technology, teaching, and research for the benefit of patients and families, and at the same time, never stops in its quest for improvement. I look forward to being part of that passionate quest in partnership with the patients of the region."

Previously, Conroy was CEO of the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, MA, which serves more than 1.2 million patients annually, and is the flagship center for the Lahey Health System as well as the teaching and partner research location for Tufts University School of Medicine.
