Cadence Health has named Maureen Bryant as president of Delnor Hospital in Geneva.

Bryant also was named executive vice president of Cadence Health, the parent company of Central DuPage Hospital and Delnor. She previously served as president and chief executive officer of the Fox River Valley Region for Presence Health.

Bryant has more than 25 years of health care leadership and management experience and extensive knowledge of the Western suburbs.

"The opportunity to lead Delnor Hospital during this time of great change is truly exciting," Bryant said in a news release. "I look forward to collaborating with a dedicated staff of health care professionals as we continue to provide high-quality, compassionate care to the residents of Geneva, the Fox River Valley region and beyond."

Bryant replaced Robert Friedberg, who left the system earlier this year to pursue an opportunity with a health care system in New York.

Before joining Presence Health, Bryant served as president and chief executive officer of Morton Hospital and Medical Center in Taunton, Mass.; executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Albany Medical Center in Albany, N.Y.; senior vice president of operations at The Toledo Hospital, Toledo, Ohio; and executive vice president and chief operating officer of Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet.

"We are fortunate to have a leader of Maureen's caliber," Mike Vivoda, Cadence Health president and chief executive officer, said in the release. "She has a proven track record of executive leadership in a changing market that challenges us to manage increasing demand, while improving efficiency as well as the patient, physician and employee experience."

In 1990, Bryant received a master's degree in business administration from Western New England College in Springfield, Mass., and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from American International College. She began her career in health care as a cardiology technician at St. Clare's Hospital in Schenectady, N.Y.
