Lebanon, NH – Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) is proud to announce that its Chief Executive Officer and President Joanne M. Conroy, MD, has been recognized with the 2020 Paul Harris Fellowship by the Lebanon, NH, chapter of Rotary International. Conroy’s induction to the Paul Harris Fellowship comes as National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci, MD, who is leading the United States’ response to combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, is also named a Harris Fellow, by the Rotary eClub of Florida.

Dr. Conroy was recognized for her service to the city of Lebanon and the wider service area of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health. “During the last several months, she has maintained a steadfast, calm, science- and evidence-based approach to leading Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, our communities, and the state through the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rotary Club of Lebanon President Ron Bedell. “In the early days of the pandemic, Conroy recognized that the priorities of communication, education, effective incident command and leadership visibility would build a foundation of trust with both our staff and the communities served by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health. Her firm commitment to the safety of patients and staff were the cornerstones of all decisions made by her and her leadership teams at various facilities across the state of New Hampshire and Vermont.”

“I am humbled to be selected as this year’s Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Club of Lebanon, and even more so to be in the company of great leaders like Dr. Fauci and other Harris Fellows named this year and in years past,” Conroy said. “Truly, though, the work I do would not be possible without the efforts of the entire D-HH system staff, who have stepped up in ways I could not have imagined prior to the pandemic and exceeded the high bar of excellence they have always met. I am proud to be a Harris Fellow, but this recognition belongs to all of our employees.”
