Yale-New Haven Hospital named the first female president and chief executive officer in its 179-year history. Marna Borgstrom, now executive vice president and chief operating officer at the hospital and its parent Yale New Haven Health System, will succeed Joseph Zaccagnino when he retires Sept. 30 after 35 years at the organization. Borgstrom, who has held her current position since 1993, is responsible for the system's $850 million operating budget and serves as primary liaison to Yale University School of Medicine. She joined the 944-bed hospital in 1979 as an administrative fellow. She holds a master's of public health in hospital administration from Yale's medical school and a bachelor's degree in human biology from Stanford University. Yale-New Haven was founded as the fourth voluntary hospital in the U.S. in 1826. -- by Cinda Becker
