2023 Power 25 Health Care: Montez Carter

Montez Carter last year took over as president and CEO of Trinity Health Of New England, the state’s third-largest health system that has showcased several recent expansion projects.

Trinity Health’s Connecticut portfolio includes St. Francis and Mount Sinai Rehabilitation hospitals in Hartford; St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury; and Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford Springs.

Trinity Health recently unveiled a $6 million expansion and renovation of Johnson Memorial’s Karen Davis Krzynowek Cancer Center in Enfield. It also debuted this past summer a new Bloomfield medical facility, at 852 Cottage Grove Road, with both urgent and outpatient care centers.

In April, Carter announced a unique deal, in which Trinity Health sold some of its medical debt to national nonprofit RIP Medical Debt, which erased $32.76 million worth of liabilities for over 22,000 patients.

Trinity Health’s Connecticut operations reported $1.8 billion in operating revenue in fiscal 2022, according to financial data from the Office of Health Strategy.

Carter told the Hartford Business Journal in late 2022 that one of his top priorities is for Trinity Health Of New England to continue to evolve to meet the community’s needs.

“That can happen in different ways,” Carter said. “Some of that could be through expansion. Some of that can be through acquisitions. Some of that could be through partnerships with other existing providers. So, I think that all of those options are available to us.”

Carter has worked for Michigan-based parent company Trinity Health for more than a decade. Before arriving in Connecticut, he was president and CEO of St. Mary’s Health Care System in Georgia.

Carter began his career as a pharmacist. He was chosen as Trinity Health Of New England’s president and CEO following a national search that included about 50 internal and external candidates.

Carter, a sports fan and collector of vintage sports memorabilia, is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and has served on several boards, including the American Hospital Association.

He received his MBA from the University of Alabama and his doctorate in pharmacy from the University of Mississippi.
