The Face of Health Care

Joanne M. Conroy, CEO and President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock

Dr. Joanne M. Conroy entered as the second chief executive officer and president of Dartmouth-Hitchcock in August 2017, becoming the first female leader of the largest health system in New Hampshire. Dr. Conroy comes to Dartmouth-Hitchcock from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts, where she served as CEO. Her career also includes leadership positions at the Medical University of South Carolina, Atlantic Health System and the American Association of Medical Colleges. She is a 1977 graduate of Dartmouth College and received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Conroy sees a bright future for Dartmouth-Hitchcock and health care for the region in general. “Dartmouth-Hitchcock really can be a formidable, integrated health system in New Hampshire and southern Vermont,” she says. “There is no other organization that is delivering care the way we do. There has been incredible change in our health care environment the last few years – locally, regionally and nationally. This is the right time as an organization to concentrate on the elements of our core mission – to focus on patient care, research, education and community outreach. Now is a great time for Dartmouth-Hitchcock to redefine ourselves for the future.”
