LEBANON, NH – Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health and Dartmouth-Hitchcock CEO and President Joanne M. Conroy, MD, has been named one of the 50 “Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders” by Modern Healthcare magazine.
Conroy, who arrived a little less than a year ago and has ensured the $58 million turnaround in the health system’s finances, is featured in the June 18 issue of the magazine, along with leaders of the nation’s top health system, government agencies, and foundations. She was noted not only for the financial success, but also for the system’s solid bond rating reviews and efforts to improve staff engagement and retention.
“This is such an incredible honor. It goes without saying that being listed among such an impressive list of my fellow physician leaders is humbling. I’m very proud to have been selected last year as the CEO and President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, to lead an organization with great promise to transform health care for our nation. This recognition by Modern Healthcare further validates that we as an organization are doing the right thing for our patients and the communities we serve.”
The “50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders” list is an annual recognition program honoring physician executives working in all sectors of the healthcare industry who are steering their organizations and the healthcare delivery system through dynamic, challenging times. These physician leaders stand out for the scope of their executive responsibilities, personal achievements, innovation and commitment to their communities. Others named to the “50 Most Influential” list this year include FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, Mayo Clinic President and CEO John Noseworthy, Dana Farber Cancer Institute President and CEO Laurie Glimcher, Assistant HHS Secretary Elinore McCance-Katz, and United States Senator Rand Paul.
“From the opioid crisis to dramatic changes in public policy to a shifting reimbursement model, healthcare organizations are facing significant challenges. The physician executives on this year’s list are at the forefront of driving change in the healthcare industry,” said Matthew Weinstock, Modern Healthcare’s managing editor. “The list includes physician executives who are influencing healthcare both locally and nationally. We had an impressive list of nominees this year and getting it down to 50 was not easy, but we believe this list is representative of the transformation that’s taking place in the industry.”
Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) is informing consumers that The Kellogg Company is recalling all boxes of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal as part of an investigation into an ongoing, multistate outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating 73 illnesses across 31 states related to a specific type of Salmonella. The illnesses occurred between March 3, 2018, and May 28, 2018. Based on interviews of ill people, investigators have determined that the Honey Smacks cereal is the likely source of the outbreak. One case of salmonellosis has been confirmed in New Hampshire as part of this outbreak.
“Cereal has a long shelf life, so we are advising people to check their shelves and pantries to make sure they do not have any boxes of the recalled product,” said Beth Daly, Chief of the DPHS Bureau of Infectious Disease Control. “Anyone who has Honey Smacks cereal should either throw it away or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.”
Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps usually 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment. However, in some cases, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. In these patients, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream, and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the patient is treated promptly with antibiotics.
DPHS continues to follow this outbreak closely, including coordinating with the CDC and FDA to investigate reported cases, and will provide updates as they become available. To report a suspected illness associated with this outbreak, people should contact the DPHS Bureau of Infectious Disease Control at 603-271-4496.
For further information, please visit the CDC webpage dedicated to the outbreak at https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/mbandaka-06-18/index.html.
