|NH's New Leadership: Dean M. Carucci|
|Published Friday, May 19, 2017|
Throughout 2017, Business NH Magazine will highlight the dramatic changes in NH's leadership since 2015 by profiling leaders in new positions.
After holding executive positions at several hospitals in the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) network, Dean Carucci was promoted to CEO of Portsmouth Regional Hospital in August 2015.
The first major challenge facing Carucci was annual employee turnover of 20 percent, well above the industry average of 15 percent, he says. He attributed the high turnover to the administration’s lack of engagement with employees. “I put plans in place as to how to re-engage the staff,” Carucci says, including making sure the executive team is present for staff meetings and doing rounds to be accessible on the hospital’s floors. Voluntary turnover dropped to 11.5 percent. “We were number one in HCA for employee engagement improvement” between 2015 and 2016, Carcucci says. The hospital also recently opened a freestanding emergency room in Seabrook.
