The unprecedented challenge this crisis presents to everyone – hospitals, supply chains, of course the workforce, our elected leaders, and the public – is beyond anything anyone ever imagined. The physical and emotional strain on our healthcare workforce is enormous, with some of those workers now falling ill themselves.
Join Kevin Dahill, President and CEO of the Suburban Hospital Alliance of New York State in an important virtual discussion as he chats about the challenges our healthcare providers are facing — including critical supply shortages, the availability and procurement of Personal Protection Equipment to keep our workforce safe, and the affects of the the CARES bill passed by Congress which will provide $100 billion to the healthcare industry. Amy Allen, Vice President, WCA will moderate.

Kevin Dahill is president and CEO of the Suburban Hospital Alliance of New York State. SHANYS is the advocacy arm of the two regional hospital associations that Kevin Dahill oversees – the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council on Long Island and the Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association in the Hudson Valley. These two associations represent nearly 50 hospitals, which serve about 25% of New York’s population. Mr. Dahill also serves as an executive vice president of the Healthcare Association of New York State.
Kevin Dahill assumed the leadership post of NSHC in 2002. Under his direction, the association, which represents Long Island’s not-for-profit and public hospitals, has dramatically enhanced its presence among lawmakers, the media and the public and is truly the collective voice of Long Island’s hospitals. Mr. Dahill is routinely sought for his expertise on a variety of health care issues such as: hospital economics and finance, health services planning, hospitals and community benefit, workforce issues, corporate compliance, quality and performance improvement issues and managed care practices.
In 2010, Mr. Dahill became president and CEO of the Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association located in Newburgh, New York. The conjoining of these two associations as SHANYS allows for more targeted and intense advocacy for the suburban hospitals on Long Island and in the lower Hudson Valley. Mr. Dahill now oversees these two metropolitan hospital associations, two of the largest in the state, and with his leadership and hospital policy expertise presents an even stronger, collective voice for all not-for-profit hospitals in these two regions. He imparts his health care administrative knowledge to numerous organizations and sits on a variety of health care task forces, including the Long Island Association, the Hauppauge Industrial Association and the Westchester County Association. In addition, he often serves in an advisory capacity to local, state and federal elected officials on matters related to health care legislation and policy development.
Prior to his appointment at the NSHC, Mr. Dahill served as president and CEO of the New York United Hospital in Port Chester, New York. Previously, he held a variety of administrative positions that spanned 25 years at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, before departing as senior vice president and general manager in 1994.
Mr. Dahill holds a Bachelor of Science in health care management from St. Peter’s College (Jersey City, New Jersey) and a Master of Business Administration from Fordham University (New York, New York). He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Administrators and the American Association of Association Executives. He serves as adjunct professor of management at St. Peter’s College and St. Joseph’s College on Long Island.
