EVP Rick Mills to Host Joanne Conroy ’77 at January Town Hall

The CEO and president of Dartmouth-Hitchcock will speak about health care innovation.

Executive Vice President Rick Mills will host a community town hall on Wednesday, Jan. 17, with a guest appearance by Joanne Conroy ’77, chief executive officer and president of Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health. The town hall will begin at noon in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

Mills will present a general administrative update and then turn the floor over to Conroy, who took on the leadership role at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in August after serving as CEO of Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Mass.

“Coming back to New Hampshire is like a homecoming for me,” said Conroy when her appointment was announced. “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.”

Following the presentations, Mills and Conroy will take questions from the audience. 

Mills initiated the town hall series in October 2014 with the goal of fostering a regular, open exchange with members of the Dartmouth community about the future of the College.
