SVMC's CEO recognized in national ranking of top rural hospital executives

Lebanon, NH – Thomas A. Dee, FACHE, CEO and President of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), a member of Dartmouth Health, was recently named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s list of 110 rural hospital and health system CEOs to know for 2024. Dee joins two other CEOs within the Dartmouth Health system: Joseph L. Perras, MD, CEO and president of Cheshire Medical Center and Susan E. Mooney, MD, MS, FACOG, CEO and president of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital; who were also among those honored by Becker’s for their commitment to expanding hospital service lines, renovating and improving their facilities, and hiring talented team members.

“Dartmouth Health is a national leader in excellence in rural healthcare delivery, and this is reflected in the leadership of some of our most rural member hospitals,” said Joanne M. Conroy, MD, CEO and president of Dartmouth Health. “Dr. Mooney, Dr. Perras and Tom have led their teams through an especially challenging period in healthcare in the last four years without sacrificing the quality of care our patients have come to rely on. I’m very proud that their efforts have been recognized by Becker’s, and am grateful for their invaluable leadership.”

Becker’s noted that the CEOs on the list take on a variety of responsibilities to ensure rural communities have access to top-tier healthcare. Although many rural hospitals have struggled due to COVID-19 and national staffing shortages in recent years, the leaders included on Becker’s list have created sustainable models for continued success.
