Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) named Wendy Fielding to the position of Chief Financial Officer last month.
Fielding joined D-H in 2009 as the Vice President of Financial Planning, with responsibilities for business and analytical decision support, oversight of the annual financial planning and budget process, and development of the organization’s long-term financial plan. In more recent years, Fielding has assumed an increasing level of responsibility for D-H financial issues and for supporting the D-H leadership team. In addition to her expanded D-H role, Fielding will retain her existing Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system finance responsibilities.
Prior to joining D-H, Fielding held positions as the Chief Financial Officer at Mount Desert Island Hospital in Bar Harbor, Maine, and the Director of Financial Reporting & Analysis at Boston Medical Center. She is currently a Trustee of New London Hospital and previously served on the Board of Cheshire Medical Center.
Fielding holds a Master of Business Administration degree in Healthcare Management from Boston University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Bentley University. Fielding was selected as a Carol Emmott Fellow in 2019, and is passionate about supporting women leaders to advance their healthcare careers and to ultimately transform healthcare.
