It’s been a challenging year for all Connecticut hospitals as they deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and it’s been no different for Trinity Health Of New England, the parent company of three in-state hospitals, including flagship St. Francis Hospital.

Reginald Eadie leads Trinity’s New England region — which also includes Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford Springs, St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury and Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, Mass. — and he brings a unique background to the job because he’s a doctor and holds an MBA from Michigan State University, giving him both a medical and business background as he navigates the choppy waters of a pandemic and industry consolidation. He recently was named co-chair of Gov. Ned Lamont’s COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Group, which will help develop a distribution strategy once a vaccine is readily available.

Trinity’s $1.59 billion in fiscal 2019 operating revenue ranked third highest among Connecticut health systems, behind crosstown competitor Hartford HealthCare and Yale New Haven Health..

Eadie is facing a number of headwinds. In April, Trinity Health furloughed an undisclosed number of non-clinical staff due to the pandemic canceling most elective surgeries and people not going to the emergency room, and laid off additional employees in June.

Eadie has been on the frontlines of urging patients who need critical care to return to the hospital — and they have, which should help Trinity’s bottom line begin to recover.

A Detroit native and published author, Eadie has been named a “100 Physician Leaders to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
