NEW HAVEN, CT: Benfer to retire from St. Raphael

Pharmacy Choice, February 23, 2009

David W. Benfer has announced his retirement as president and CEO of the Saint Raphael Healthcare System after 10 years at the nonprofit hospital and its affiliates. Benfer, 62, is expected to stay on for up to a year in his current post as a nationwide search is conducted for his replacement. When a new CEO is named, Benfer will transition to a role as vice chairperson of the Saint Raphael Healthcare System Board of Trustees. His role will include efforts to pursue Saint Raphael’s affiliation with a national health system—one of the Board’s long-term strategies to secure Saint Raphael's future and ensure the continued presence of Catholic healthcare in the region.
