ToniAnn Marchione joins Regional Hospice as new Chief Health Operating Officer

ToniAnn Marchione is the Chief Health Operating Officer (CHOO) at Regional Hospice, providing oversight for the clinical aspects of the agency and leading tactical partnerships with top healthcare organizations in the region. She joined the staff in 2021, and her role will build upon the accomplishments of outgoing Chief Clinical Officer Deborah Ryan, MSW, LCSW, ACHP-SW, who retired June 2021.

ToniAnn has 20 + years of executive leadership, empowering and inspiring her team while consistently increasing company growth. She joined Regional Hospice after four years as CEO of Danbury Radiological Associates. There, she was the driving force for strategic management of six independent imaging centers across Connecticut. One of her greatest accomplishments as CEO was developing alliances with large health systems such as Nuvance Health, which includes Norwalk and Danbury Hospitals; and Hartford Healthcare, one of the largest multispecialty practices in Connecticut.

Prior to her tenure at Danbury Radiological Associates, ToniAnn was Executive Director of ancillary services at legacy Western Connecticut Health Network, now known as Nuvance Health for 11 years where she oversaw laboratory and imaging service lines. ToniAnn believes her strong foundation for business and patient care was built during her time at Rye Radiology Associates in Rye Brook NY. She spent 11 years there starting as a radiologic technologist and growing into the position of Assistant Director.

Along with a Bachelor of Science in Radiological Science and her proven leadership excellence, ToniAnn brings tremendous experience to Regional Hospice. Since 2018, she has been a Reiki volunteer, one of the complementary therapies Regional Hospice provides to their patients. This frontline experience provides a deep understanding of the organization’s mission to approach death by creating meaningful connection and honoring each patient’s unique journey at the end of life.
