An Eye on the Future: Carol Vallone Takes on New Role as Chair of the Board

May 24, 2018

As a member of the McLean Board of Trustees for more than a decade, Carol Vallone has had a bird’s-eye view of the hospital’s performance. Now, in her 11th year and poised to take on the role of chair, Vallone is looking toward the future and is eager to build on the strong foundation laid by her predecessors.

“Since serving on the board, I have watched the hospital build a solid financial foundation under Chair Kate Feldstein, PhD, and experience significant financial growth with the guidance of Chairman David Barlow,” said Vallone. “As I look at where we’ve been and where we need to go, I see the next phase in McLean’s evolution as being one of accelerated growth and global expansion. The hospital is stronger than it ever has been before.”

With a tremendous drive for success, a big vision for the future, and an unyielding commitment to McLean and its mission, we are extremely fortunate to have Carol Vallone serving as our new chair. Having joined the board more than a decade ago, Vallone has been deeply involved with hospital operations and planning. She has served as the chair of McLean’s Ventures Committee, as a member of the Marketing Task Force, and most recently has taken on the role of chair of the Strategic Planning Committee. Vallone has a stellar 19-year career launching, scaling, and selling market-leading online learning companies serving the higher education market. In a true example of her dedication to McLean, Vallone has shifted her focus and is spending more time serving the hospital and the health care industry. As a seasoned business leader in technology and online learning, with a strong background in designing growth strategies that generate financial results, she is in a position to guide McLean as we look to grow our physical and virtual reach globally.

“This is an exciting time for McLean,” said Vallone. “McLean is the number one psychiatric hospital in the country; the stage is set. Now is the time to be bold and innovative and to revolutionize the delivery of psychiatric services.”
