Melissa B. Turner has been named senior vice president and chief human resources officer, Yale New Haven Health System. She succeeds Kevin A. Myatt, who retired Oct. 1.

Turner’s responsibilities expanded in 2016 when she was named vice president of Talent Acquisition for YNHHS, before also assuming the senior leadership role with YNHH, HSC and NEMG.  

“We are thrilled to welcome Melissa as our chief human resources officer,” said Marna P. Borgstrom, YNHHS CEO. “Her expertise in human resources and talent acquisition, varied experiences in our health system, and great values make Melissa uniquely suited for this role. She is also a passionate employee advocate, committed to making YNHHS the employer of choice.”
