President resigns from post at Danbury, New Milford hospitals: 4 things to know

Dan DeBarba, executive vice president of Danbury-based Western Connecticut Health Network and president of Danbury and New Milford (Conn.) hospitals, has resigned, The News-Times reported.

Here are four things to know about Mr. DeBarba.

1. He is leaving both the hospitals and the network at the end of May for a new opportunity with "a large health system in New York," hospital officials told The News-Times. Officials did not disclose the name of the system.

2. Mr. DeBarba was named a network executive vice president and president of both hospitals two years ago, shortly after the network merged with Norwalk (Conn.) Hospital.

3. During his time with the network, Mr. DeBarba contended with an ongoing battle with state lawmakers over hospital funding as well as an effort by members of the hospital's service, maintenance and environmental workers looking to join the American Federation of Teachers union, according to the report.

4. Previously, Mr. DeBarba was CEO of Norwalk Hospital prior to the merger in 2014.
