2023 Power 25 Health Care: Michael R. Taylor

Michael R. Taylor is a major player in Greater New Haven’s healthcare industry, serving as CEO of the Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center since 2012.

Taylor oversees a staff of more than 700 employees who provide a range of services in Greater New Haven and the lower Naugatuck Valley, including medical, behavioral health, dental, pediatric and women’s health.

Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center serves more than 55,000 patients a year at 27 care sites and school-based health centers throughout the region. About 62% of its patients are enrolled in the state’s Medicaid program, which serves low-income residents.

Taylor is currently overseeing a major expansion project — construction of one of the state’s largest centers for addiction and mental health care.

The Recovery & Wellness Center in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood is a $24.5 million project, taking shape at 149 Minor St. When complete, the three-story, 31,000-square-foot building will feature individual and group counseling rooms, a medical suite, 12-bed female dormitory and 40-bed male dormitory with semi-private rooms.

Taylor’s influence also extends beyond Connecticut. In August, he was named board chair-elect of the National Association of Community Health Centers. He will take over the chairman role in October 2025.

Prior to joining Cornell Scott-Hill in 2010, Taylor was founder and president of a healthcare consulting firm that served more than 200 community health centers nationally. He also held leadership positions with several national accounting and healthcare consulting firms, including The Lewin Group.
