New Canaan: Stamford Health named Kathleen Silard, a registered nurse, as the organization’s new president and chief executive officer. Silard will lead the independent non-profit health system, which includes Stamford Hospital, on the Bennett Medical Center campus, Stamford Health Medical Group, and the Stamford Hospital Foundation.
She joined Stamford Health in 2003 as executive vice president and chief operating officer. As a resident of Greenwich, Silard is passionate about making a difference in the communities served by Stamford Health and is committed to leading a team of more than 3,000 employees who provide high-quality, patient-centered care every day.
Silard’s service-oriented and caring approach stems from her background as a clinician – she started her career as a nurse in the pediatrics and the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Albert Einstein Hospital in New York.
At Stamford Health she led the organization’s facility master planning and was instrumental in opening the new Stamford Hospital on time and under budget in 2016.  Silard also helped develop the Cohen Pediatric Emergency Department which provides inpatient and outpatient services for kids.
