Mike Scialdone, CEO, Memorial Hospital-University of Colorado Health
Mike Scialdone is CEO of Memorial Hospital, which is part of University of Colorado Health. He came to Memorial in November 2008 when he was hired as chief financial officer. At that time, the health system was struggling financially with a $32 million loss. Over the next two years, Mr. Scialdone led the organization through a $113 million turnaround and a return to profitability. Scialdone was appointed interim CEO in the spring of 2012 during a time of uncertainty and change as the hospital faced high-profile leadership and governance changes. He is credited with bringing stability to the organization, restoring morale, and leading Memorial into its new relationship with University of Colorado Health. Today, thanks in large part to Scialdone’s leadership, Memorial is the southern hub for a nationally recognized health system that stretches from Colorado Springs to Wyoming.
Mr. Scialdone has more than 22 years of experience in health care leadership, almost 20 of which were at the executive level. He has served as CFO and interim CEO at multiple major hospitals in for profit, nonprofit and public sectors. Prior to coming to Memorial, he served as CFO at Penrose-St. Francis Health Services. Mr. Scialdone graduated with honors from Auburn University, where he earned a B.S. Degree in Finance. He has served on numerous nonprofit boards, including the board of SET, a local safety net clinic.
