We are, therefore, delighted to announce that Michael J. Daglio has joined HHC as Senior Vice President, Hartford HealthCare, President of the new Fairfield Region and Chief Transition Officer for St. Vincent’s Medical Center

Mike Daglio could not be better suited for this role. He is a highly respected, accomplished and experienced healthcare leader. He understands the healthcare needs and challenges of Fairfield County. Most importantly, through our work with him over many years, we can confidently say he is wholly aligned with HHC’s vision and values.

Mike has been an executive with the Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) — which is comprised of Norwalk, Danbury and New Milford Hospitals — since 2004. For nearly four years, he has been President of Norwalk Hospital and WCHN’s Chief Strategy Officer. In that role, he directed the strategy of the network’s major service lines, system integration, growth and affiliations; as well as being responsible for quality and safety, patient experience, staff and physician engagement and financial performance for Norwalk Hospital.

Mike previously served as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Danbury Hospital and later the WCHN network; and as Vice President of Operations, and Cardiovascular Service Line Executive at Danbury. His healthcare career began in New York City at Continuum Health Partners in roles within its Physician Initiatives Group and ambulatory care division.

Mike earned his master’s in Health Administration from The George Washington University School of Business and Public Management, and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Hartford.

Mike Daglio is a results-oriented professional, a caring leader and a well-rounded executive. His collaborative spirit, strategic thinking and relationship-building are both good fits for our HHC culture, and necessary skills as we continue to evolve our network to meet the needs of our communities.
