New senior leaders will help steer the practice forward

YMG hires new chiefs of network strategy and finance

Kimbirly Moriarty

Two new two senior administrators will round out Yale Medical Group’s leadership team this year. Kimbirly A. Moriarty is the new chief of network strategy, and Roger J. Deshaies is the new chief financial officer.

Kimbirly Moriarty fills a newly created position designed to help YMG centralize efforts toward building its physician network, developing strategic alliances and partnerships, and pursuing new practice acquisitions. She joined Yale in mid-January from New York University Langone Medical Center (NYULMC), where she was director of physician network development and integration. At NYULMC, she was responsible for strategic planning, development, and expansion of the clinical network throughout the five boroughs in addition to Long Island, Westchester, and the Hudson Valley region. Prior to that, she was chief executive officer at Murray Hill Medical Group, P.C., a NYU affiliate. Her initial role at NYULMC was senior practice manager for vascular surgery.

Earlier in her career, Moriarty led IT development and implementation efforts for Brigham and Women’s Hospital/BWH Physicians Organization, and at IDX Systems Corporation. She completed her bachelor’s degree in business at University of Vermont and her master’s in administrative studies at Boston College.

Roger Deshaies

Roger Deshaies will arrive in February, bringing an impressive track record from several institutions—most recently Fletcher Allen Partners, where he served as senior vice president of finance and chief financial officer, and was directly involved in health reform initiatives. Prior to that, he was chief financial officer of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where his accomplishments included a significant turnaround in operating and financial performance, from a $17 million operating loss in 1998 to a projected $90 million operating gain.

Before his work in Boston, Deshaies held key financial leadership roles at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, Pennsylvania; and the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and helped steer all three through significant financial changes. Deshaies is a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where he also completed master’s degrees in political science and business administration.
