Frank Corvino, president and CEO of Greenwich Hospital, hit a major career milestone this year, celebrating his 25th anniversary with the institution.

Mr. Corvino joined the hospital in 1988 as chief operating officer, and in 1991 was named president and CEO. He is currently the longest tenured hospital CEO in Connecticut.

According to the hospital, under Mr. Corvino’s stewardship, it has “experienced tremendous growth,” including the 1993 opening of the Cohen Pavilion and creation of the Bendheim Cancer Center.

Additionally, construction of the Helmsley Medical Building in 1999 and the Olive and Thomas J. Watson Pavilion in 2005 represented a complete reconstruction of the Perryridge Campus.

The hospital said that a pivotal milestone during Mr. Corvino’s tenure was the 1998 affiliation with Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS).

He has served as executive vice president for YNHHS since that time. In January, he officiated at the opening of Yale-New Haven’s Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus.

Recognized for clinical excellence, patient satisfaction, technological innovations, medical advancements and community involvement, “Greenwich Hospital, under Mr. Corvino’s leadership, has transformed healthcare delivery in Connecticut, New York and beyond,” the institution said.

An author and lecturer as well as an executive, Mr. Corvino has addressed healthcare issues, including healthcare reform and hospital safety, in print and on broadcast media. He is the recipient of numerous local and national awards, including the Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations, the Grassroots Champion Award from the American Hospital Association and the 2013 Outstanding Business Leader award from the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce.
