Pamela Scagliarini of Milford has been promoted to chief operating officer of Bridgeport Hospital and senior vice president of Yale New Haven Health System. She replaces Norman G. Roth, who recently accepted the position of president and CEO at Greenwich Hospital, which is also part of Yale New Haven Health System.
Scagliarini has been with the health system for more than 20 years, starting as a contract coordinator in the Purchasing Department at Yale-New Haven Hospital and advancing to vice president of Supply Chain Management for the system. She joined Bridgeport Hospital last September as interim senior vice president of Operations.
“She has excelled in all facets of her role,” said William M. Jennings, president and CEO of Bridgeport Hospital and executive vice president of Yale New Haven Health System. “Her resolute work ethic and solid personal values reflect those of our health system.”
Jennings added that in her supply chain role Scagliarini had responsibility for over $1 billion in annual supply expenses and garnered a national reputation as a leader in the field. She was also a key leader in integrating corporate contracting, procurement and clinical materials management into the system-wide Supply Chain Management Division, providing comprehensive services to Yale New Haven Health System. In addition, Scagliarini led collaborative efforts across the region with VHA and other healthcare providers in creating the Northeast Purchasing Coalition, LLC.
“Pam has the rare combination of great intellectual as well as emotional intelligence, humility and an easy personal style,” said Meredith Reuben, immediate past chair of the hospital board of directors. “She has a learning attitude and gets real joy out of understanding new issues and solving challenging situations.”
A graduate of Bowling Green University in Ohio with a bachelor of science degree in procurement and materials management/operations management, Scagliarini also holds an MBA in healthcare management from the University of New Haven. She lives in Milford with her husband Mike and their three teenage children.
