Dartmouth Health CEO and president Joanne M. Conroy, MD, was named to Business NH Magazine’s 40 Influential Leaders list for 2024. Compiled in honor of the magazine’s 40th anniversary, the 40 Influential Leaders were selected by Business NH for advancing their industry or taking a leadership role in addressing a major challenge facing New Hampshire.

In selecting the 40 honorees, Business NH conducted extensive research into the major challenges facing the Granite State—affordable housing, childcare, workforce development and creating a state that is welcoming to all as our population continues to diversify. Magazine staff also asked state leaders for their nominations.

Business NH has documented the transformation of New Hampshire’s economy, business community and demographics for four decades now. It’s an honor to be recognized by them as one of the leaders addressing our state’s primary concerns as the magazine celebrates this milestone,” Conroy said. “Healthcare is changing rapidly in our state and nationwide. We at Dartmouth Health work hard and pride ourselves on evolving with our community to provide them the best care possible.”

The latest issue of Business NH, featuring the 40 Influential Leaders list, is on newsstands now.
