Three Connecticut hospital officials landed on a national list of hospital and health system “CEOs to know.”

Earlier this year, Becker’s Healthcare unveiled the 2017 edition of its annual list “183 nonprofit hospital and health system CEOs to know.” Those on the list include Marna Borgstrom. President and CEO of Yale New Haven Health System and CEO of Yale New Haven Hospital; Patrick Charmel, president and CEO of Griffin Hospital in Derby, and Elliot Joseph. President and CEO of Hartford HealthCare.

According to the Becker’s web site, “the men and women on this list lead some of the largest and most successful nonprofit healthcare organizations in the country. The Becker’s Healthcare editorial team accepted nominations for this list and selected those included based on editorial judgment.”

For instance, as president and CEO of Yale New Haven Health System, Borgstrom leads the state’s largest health system, which includes Yale New Haven Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital and Greenwich Hospital.

Her first introduction to healthcare was as a unit secretary at Stanford (Calif.) Medical Center. In addition to her executive role at YNHHS and YNHH, Borgstrom has served on the boards of many national and local organizations, such as VHA, the Council of Teaching Hospitals and the Connecticut Hospital Association. In honor of her commitment to public health, Ms. Borgstrom has received many accolades, including ADL's Torch of Liberty Award and YMCA's Women in Leadership Award.

Charmel, meanwhile, not only leads the 160-bed Griffin Hospital, he ts on the boards for the Connecticut Hospital Association, the Quinnipiac Alumni Association and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce.

And Joseph, in his role as CEO of Hartford HealthCare, oversees more than 18,000 employees, five acute care hospitals, an accountable care organization and an extensive behavioral health network.

The list is not an intended as an endorsement of included hospitals or health system, or associated providers. Leaders did not pay for inclusion on this list.
