WINFIELD, Ill., April 6, 2011 - Michael V. Vivoda, 51, of Wheaton, has been appointed president of Central DuPage Hospital (CDH), in Winfield, Ill. He previously held the title of executive vice president. Former president and CEO, Luke McGuinness, has transitioned into the CEO role of the newly formed health system – CDH-Delnor Health System.
“Mike is a proven leader and is eminently qualified to lead CDH,” said McGuinness. “This executive change supports CDH’s ability to sustain quality, achieve operational excellence and maintain focus on patient satisfaction.”
Vivoda has been a key member of the executive team since 2004 and has been instrumental in growing and expanding the services of CDH and recruiting some of the area’s most specialized and experienced physicians. “He has earned the respect and confidence of the physicians, nurses and staff,” added Dr. Jim Giblin, president of CDH’s Medical Staff.
Vivoda has a broad-based background in both inpatient and outpatient hospital operations as well as physician group management. He was the lead executive responsible for creating CDH’s new $35 million comprehensive cancer center and for achieving a six-fold increase in CDH’s laboratory business over the last five years. Vivoda has spent almost his entire career in healthcare in Chicago after starting as a hospital administrator in the United States Air Force.
A graduate of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he received his Bachelor of Science in business administration and he earned his Master of Management through the Executive MBA Program at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Active in his community, Vivoda is the board chair of Access DuPage, a program for the uninsured in DuPage County; a lector at St. Michael’s Church in Wheaton; a board member of the College of DuPage Foundation; and an advisory council member for Family Shelter Services, a program supporting victims of domestic violence.
