Norwalk Hospital welcomed three new members — one of them a Wilton resident — to its Board of Directors, and named another town resident as the board chair.
Thomas I.H. Dubin has served on the Norwalk Hospital Board of Directors for three years, most recently as vice chair. He is chair of Cellphire Therapeutics, on the Advisory Board of Mythic Pharmaceuticals, a director of Connecticut Innovations and a Yale School of Public Health Leadership Council member. Dubin has extensive experience as an attorney and pharmaceutical executive and holds a Master of Public Health degree.
“It is an exciting time for Norwalk Hospital as we embark on the largest expansion project in hospital history by constructing a new inpatient pavilion,” Dubin said.
“Norwalk Hospital provides essential health services to our communities with impressive quality and dedication to our patients. We are pleased to welcome Amy … to help us further advance our mission,” he added.
Dr. Amy Ahasic is chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine and the medical director of pulmonary rehabilitation at Norwalk Hospital. She has advanced training in occupational and environmental medicine and holds a Master of Public Health degree.
Fairfield and Westchester County Doctors of Distinction recognized Ahasic as a 2021 Female Trailblazer for her dedication to addressing equity in leadership and wellness for women physicians.
Ahasic is on the frontlines of patient care and medical education and will contribute her firsthand knowledge to augment Norwalk Hospital’s clinical strengths, identify opportunities and overcome challenges.
“I worked at large, academic medical centers before coming to Norwalk Hospital five years ago. I have never felt more a part of a community than I do now,” Ahasic said.
“Taking care of patients at Norwalk Hospital is very special; I am eager to have an additional way as a board member to forward the mission of the hospital and its service to our communities,” she added.
Other newly appointed board members include James Dimonekas of Darien, and Leonard DiNardo of Norwalk. Pablo D. Colón, of Stratford, was appointed vice chair.
