A search is in the offing for a new leader at Trinity Health Of New England as President and CEO Chris Dadlez announced plans to step down from his post at year's end.

Dadlez joined Saint Francis Care in 2004 and led the 2015 consolidation of the system into the national Trinity Health system. Previously, Dadlez served as CEO of multiple large, complex health systems.

"This is a decision I have been contemplating for some time now," said Dadlez. "Together, we have taken this organization far by creating a strong region with a common mission, and I feel now is the right time to allow a new leader to take Trinity Health Of New England to the next level."

In the coming months, Trinity Health will conduct a national search for a new CEO.

Trinity Health Board Chairman Kevin J. O'Connor called Dadlez a "steadfast" leader whose business acumen helped the health system grow.

The organization is comprised of multiple hospitals and health systems in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Formed in 2015, it is a member of Trinity Health in Livonia, Mich., one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic healthcare delivery systems in the nation serving communities in 22 states.

In Connecticut, Trinity Health is comprised of Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center and Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital in Hartford; Johnson Memorial Hospital and Home & Community Health Services in Stafford Springs; and Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury.
