My name is Kathleen Silard, I began my career as a nurse in the pediatrics and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Albert Einstein Hospital in New York. Following a transition to healthcare administration, I joined Stamford Health in 2003 as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. During this time, I provided clinical and operational leadership to the growing health system. I am passionate about making a difference in the communities served by Stamford Health and committed to leading a team of more than 3,000 employees who provide high-quality, patient-centered care. I was named President and CEO of Stamford Health in 2018.
