President and Chief Executive Officer
Holy Rosary Medical Center
Ontario, Ore.

As president and chief executive officer of Holy Rosary Medical Center, Mark Dalley is thrilled to join the Ontario, Ore., community. "This is an exciting time to come aboard," said Dalley. "We are working to enlarge and expand our facility to better serve eastern Oregon and southwestern Idaho."

A construction project scheduled to be complete by the end of the year will add 70,000 square feet to Holy Rosary’s emergency, surgery and outpatient areas. In addition to the 74-bed hospital, Holy Rosary includes the Maternal Care Clinic and Dominican Health Services Clinic, an urgent care center in Fruitland, Idaho.

"Holy Rosary is committed to living out our values and responding to the needs of every person who comes to our facilities, regardless of ability to pay," said Dalley. "Being part of Catholic Health Initiatives allows us to fulfill our promises because we have access to more technological, financial and intellectual resources than we would as a stand-alone facility."

Before joining Catholic Health Initiatives, Dalley served for six years at Rural Health Management Corporation, where he was responsible for managing four small rural hospitals in Utah and a rural clinic in Nevada. Before that, Dalley worked at Intermountain Health Care for 16 years in a variety of positions, including administrator and chief operating officer for IHC Hospitals of Utah County in Provo, Utah, and chief operating officer for Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah.

"Joining the staff of Holy Rosary gives me the opportunity to get more involved with a local community to ensure that we provide the services and education necessary to make a positive impact," Dalley said. "For example, we have initiated a community leaders’ breakfast for business, civic, educational and religious leaders that provides an outlet for everyone to discuss health concerns. This will also give us the opportunity to update the community about Holy Rosary."

Dalley graduated from Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, with a master’s degree in public administration. He earned his bachelor of arts degree from Southern Utah State College, Cedar City, Utah. Dalley and his wife have been married for 26 years. They have six children and are expecting their first grandchild.
