Catholic Health Names Rebecca J. McCormick-Boyle Chief Integration Officer
Catholic Health is pleased to announce that Rebecca J. McCormick-Boyle, BSN, MS, MHA, FACHE, has been named Chief Integration Officer. In this new senior leadership role, McCormick-Boyle will provide executive oversight for the implementation of the system’s 2025 Strategic Plan.
“Hand-in-hand with installing the nation’s most advanced electronic health record (EHR) system, we’ve been developing a new strategic plan for our system that will shape the course of our work over the next five years,” said Mark Sullivan, President & CEO of Catholic Health. “With our Epic EHR well underway and our strategic plan complete, Rebecca will work with our leadership team to implement the strategies that will enable us to meet the healthcare needs of the Western New York region well into the future.”
A highly decorated member of the United States Navy, McCormick-Boyle retired as a Rear Admiral this past year after more than 38 years of military service. She began her military career as a surgical and critical care nurse before rising through the ranks as a Navy nurse executive. Most recently, she served as Deputy Chief of the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED), and Commander, Navy Medicine Education and Training.
