      President & CEO, Kathy Silard

      Kathleen Silard, MS, BSN, RN, FACHE


      Kathleen Silard likes to say that Stamford Health “…offers world-class care, provided by kind and caring people, in a state-of-the-art setting.” And she would know. After serving as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for 15 years starting in 2003, she was promoted to President and CEO of Stamford Health in 2018.

      Stamford Health is an independent, non-profit health system, comprised of a 305-bed acute care hospital, an ambulatory network including four multispecialty centers and a medical group with more than 150 physicians in 40 offices throughout Fairfield County, Connecticut. With more than 3,600 employees, Stamford Health is the largest employer in the City of Stamford, and contributes more than $1 billion a year to the local economy.

      In her roles as Executive Vice President and then President & CEO, Kathleen provided the vision and leadership which resulted in Stamford Health accomplishing many milestones.

      Kathleen’s expertise and foresight led to the on-time and under-budget development of the new Stamford Hospital on the Bennett Medical Center campus in 2016, a $450 million facility that was the first LEED-Certified hospital in Connecticut. Under Kathleen’s leadership, Stamford Health has been recognized by major organizations such as U.S. News & World Report, the American Heart Association and the Leapfrog Group. Also under her leadership, Stamford Health established collaborative relationships with Hospital for Special Surgery and Dana-Farber Brigham and Women’s. Most recently, Kathleen piloted Stamford Health through the COVID-19 pandemic, caring for hundreds of patients, collaborating with community partners to serve at-risk groups and even forging a unique partnership with the military to set up an alternative care site that was a regional resource during the spring surge.

      Kathleen began her career as a nurse in the pediatrics and the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Albert Einstein Hospital in New York before entering the field of healthcare administration. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for various healthcare organizations and is the recipient of several awards recognizing her dedication to the community. She is passionate about making a difference in the communities served by Stamford Health and committed to leading a team who provides person-centered care that values and respects patients’ needs and preferences.
