After more than 41 years with the Yale New Haven Health System and the last six at Greenwich Hospital I have made the decision to retire effective October 2. My time at Greenwich Hospital has been the experience of a lifetime for which I am grateful. It has been and will remain a great honor of mine to have served this hospital and community – I will miss the collegiality and interaction with you all. As the curve of the virus flattened and the challenge dissipated, Greenwich Hospital emerged stronger and more prepared than ever before. I am confident this strength will continue undeterred and our mission and tradition of delivering first-in-class, expert patient driven healthcare will take us to new heights.
I am pleased to announce that Diane P. Kelly, DNP, RN will become Greenwich Hospital’s new president effective immediately. I will continue as the CEO until my retirement, but Diane will step into her new role during this transition period. Diane has been an extremely effective leader throughout her career and since joining our team in 2018 she has made a clear and a positive impact on the entire hospital community. Following my retirement, Diane will assume full leadership of Greenwich Hospital. Joining her will be Marc Kosak, who will be promoted to chief operating officer, effective October 3. Marc has been a critical part of the senior leadership team for many years. He is well-known and well-respected among his peers here at Greenwich Hospital and throughout the system.
In partnership with you, our trusted neighbor and friend, Greenwich Hospital now stands as model to our peers and ready to deliver exceptional healthcare and a unique patient experience. In this bittersweet moment, I am proud that Greenwich Hospital is your trusted family hospital, humbled by your tremendous support through the years and confident that, together with your continued support, Greenwich Hospital will flourish, grow and continue to provide our community peace-of-mind.
The healthcare environment we are presently experiencing teaches us that we need to come together, be kind and understanding of each other, and work collaboratively to offer the patients we are privileged to serve the finest care possible. I will greatly miss working with you and am confident you are in good hands with Diane and Marc leading this charge.
Norman G. Roth, CEO
