Concord Regional VNA Welcomes David Green, MD, to its Board of Trustees
Concord Regional VNA, the largest home health and hospice provider in New Hampshire, has appointed David Green, M.D., F.A.C.S., Concord Hospital Center for Urologic Care, to its Board of Trustees. Dr. Green joined the board earlier this year, shortly after retiring as Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Concord Hospital. Dr. Green brings more than 40 years of experience in medical practice, education and leadership to this role.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Green join the Concord Regional VNA Board of Trustees,” said Beth Slepian, President and CEO, Concord Regional VNA. “David brings unique expertise to the team, with extensive healthcare operations experience and provider perspective. The counsel our trustees provide is crucial to our continued success and we are grateful to David for his commitment to our organization and the communities we serve.”
After completing residencies in surgery and urology at Yale-New Haven Hospital, Dr. Green joined the Concord Urology Professional Association as a partner in 1987. The practice was acquired by Concord Hospital in 2005 and renamed Concord Hospital Center for Urologic Care. Among his many accomplishments, Green helped establish the Concord Hospital Medical Group from a diverse group of more than 20 independent practices, to an integrated, multi-specialty group with an aligned mission and set of values under a shared governance. He also developed the Urodynamics Lab at Concord Hospital, a major regional resource, and has paved the way in surgical innovations, having performed the first laser prostatectomy, laser lithotripsy, continent urinary diversion, neobladder, periurethral contigen implant, and Interstim sacral nerve neuromodulation implant at Concord Hospital.
“During my years in clinical practice I came to trust and depend on CRVNA to help restore patients’ health and function,” said Green. “On a personal basis, my family has benefitted from their compassionate hospice care. It is a genuine privilege to join the Concord Regional VNA Board and support their mission.”
In addition to various volunteer and elected positions on the American Urologic Association, Dr. Green is an adjunct associate professor of surgery at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and provides consulting urologist services at a number of hospitals, including Concord Hospital, New London Hospital, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital and Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Allegheny College, and earned his Doctor of Medicine from Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine.
Concord Regional VNA has been caring for people in their homes and leading the way in population health since 1899. Concord Regional VNA’s more than 400 highly skilled clinicians and staff members provide unmatched care across the entire life span – from birth to end-of-life. The agency provides a broad array of services, including home care, hospice care, palliative care, pediatric and maternal child health, and personal home services, as well as community clinics and wellness programs, to more than 8,000 New Hampshire residents of all ages each year.
Concord Regional VNA, which recently celebrated its 120th Anniversary, began providing hospice services to patients in homes, hospitals and nursing homes in 1981. In 1994, the agency opened New Hampshire’s first Hospice House to provide patients who are terminally ill and their loved ones a comfortable place to call home with skilled, 24-hour care.
