Corvino to retire as Greenwich Hospital head

There’s a change in the top coming for Greenwich Hospital as Frank Corvino, president and CEO, will retire at the end of the year after 26 years at the helm.

Mr. Corvino, who will also be stepping down from his position as executive vice president of  Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), isn’t going anywhere quite yet, though. His retirement won’t be effective until Dec. 31.

Mr. Corvino has been with Greenwich Hospital since 1988 and officials there said on Monday he would be missed.

“Frank’s countless contributions, leadership and unwavering commitment to patients, staff, physicians and the community have made Greenwich Hospital and Yale Haven Health System stronger and created a lasting legacy,” said Marna Borgstrom, YNHHS’ CEO.

“Greenwich Hospital has been enormously fortunate to have had Frank’s leadership for so many years,” said Dan Mosley, Greenwich Hospital’s Board of Trustees’ president. “Greenwich Hospital would not be a top regional healthcare provider without Frank’s leadership and tireless dedication. Although retiring as CEO, Frank has agreed to continue assisting the Hospital in the areas of development and fundraising, among others, and we are fortunate to retain his depth of experience and knowledge.”

Mr. Corvino’s tenure at the hospital has been an award winning one that has earned top marks from evaluators. And he said that the decision was not an easy one.

“I have been privileged to serve the Greenwich community for over 25 years and honored to work alongside some of the best physicians and staff in the country,” said Mr. Corvino. “While this was a very difficult decision for me and my family, I am leaving at a time when patient care and safety is at an all-time high and the hospital is well positioned for the future.”

Yale New Haven Health System sad it will conduct a national search for Mr. Corvino’s replacement with the goal to have his successor in place before the end of the year.
