GREENWICH, Conn. – Norman G. Roth has been named the new president of Greenwich Hospital and executive vice president of the Yale New Haven Health System.
Roth was appointed interim president of Greenwich Hospital on Jan. 1 after serving as its interim chief operating officer since last August. Before that, he served as the COO at Bridgeport Hospital from 2011 to 2014.
Roth has been a part of the Yale New Haven Health System for more than 35 years, joining Yale-New Haven Hospital in 1979 as the administrative director for emergency services.
“Norman brings exceptional experience in the healthcare field and has been a champion for the patient throughout his stand-out career within our Health System,” said Marna P. Borgstrom, president and CEO of Yale New Haven Health System. “We are delighted that he has accepted our offer to serve as the president of Greenwich Hospital.”
Before he was appointed COO at Bridgeport Hospital, Roth served as a senior vice president at Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Yale New Haven Health System. In that role Roth led the planning, design and completion of the 500,000-square-foot Smilow Cancer Hospital, which formally opened in New Haven in 2010.
“I am excited about the opportunity to lead such an exceptional organization,” said Roth. “Having worked with my colleagues in Greenwich since the hospital joined the Health System in 1998, and from my direct experience over the last year, I recognize that this is a very special place. I am honored to carry on the tradition of great care for the patients we serve.”
Roth formally succeeds Frank Corvino who retired as president and CEO of Greenwich Hospital on Dec. 31 after 26 years of service.
“In just a short period of time at Greenwich Hospital, Norman has demonstrated a clear ability to manage difficult and complex issues and has brought a focused commitment to serving our patients and our community,” said Arthur C. Martinez, co-chair of the Greenwich Hospital Board of Trustees. “He has won the trust and support of our medical staff, employees and community.”
Before joining Yale-New Haven Hospital, Roth held positions at Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Connecticut and the Veterans Administration Hospital in West Haven.
Roth earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the American University and a master’s degree in health care and hospital administration from George Washington University.
