Longtime employee earns Finance and Corporate Services award
On Nov. 1, Vinny Tammaro, Yale New Haven Health chief financial officer, presented Patti Iannucci, RN, with the Finance and Corporate Services Cultural Leadership Award. The annual award honors an employee who demonstrates outstanding leadership and embodies Yale New Haven’s vision, mission and values. Iannucci received an overwhelming number of nominations for exemplifying Yale New Haven’s core values. Nominators noted that she is hard-working, compassionate, empathetic and, most importantly, puts patients, staff and the organization first. Iannucci’s genuine and caring approach to everyone she comes into contact with is a testament to why she was such an easy choice for the award. Iannucci joined Bridgeport Hospital as a volunteer in 1974 and later became a nurse and Emergency Department manager. She joined the health system’s Finance division in 2007 and is now a senior manager in Revenue Management. In May 2019, Iannucci will mark 40 years as an employee, during which she has volunteered her time and energy to support numerous organizations in the YNHHS community.
