Anne Diamond, JD, has been named the new president of Bridgeport Hospital. She was selected after an extensive national search.

“I am delighted to have Anne bring her exceptional skills to the talented Bridgeport Hospital family and our health system,” said Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Health and Yale New Haven Hospital. “She has an intimate familiarity with the evolving healthcare environment in Connecticut and a strong track record of forging lasting and strategic relationships with physicians and the broader community.”

For the past two years, Diamond has served as president of Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam, CT, where she has been instrumental in improving that organization’s operating performance and positioning the hospital to successfully integrate with a system partner. Her success was marked by a recent Day Kimball announcement of its intention to join Prospect Healthcare, which currently owns Waterbury, Manchester and Rockville General hospitals.

Prior to joining Day Kimball Hospital in 2017, Diamond spent seven years at UConn Health’s John Dempsey Hospital, four of those years as its chief executive officer. Diamond began her healthcare career as a nuclear medicine technologist and worked at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, for six years before she was recruited to the Electric Power Research Institute, based in Palo Alto, CA.

Diamond sits on the Connecticut Hospital Association’s (CHA’s) Board of Trustees and served as past chair of CHA’s Statewide Asthma Initiative and is the current chair of CHA’s Statewide Health Equity Advisory Council. Diamond holds an executive juris doctor degree with a concentration in Health Law from Concord School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology from Cedar Crest College. She is married with a 19 year-old son and resides in West Hartford, CT.

Michael Ivy, MD has capably served as interim president and CEO of Bridgeport Hospital since the departure of former CEO Bill Jennings last fall. He will assume a new role as deputy chief medical officer of Yale New Haven Health when Diamond arrives.
