Boyd Recognized with C-Level Award

Updated: 9/1/2020

Don Boyd, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Kaleida Health, made this year’s list of Buffalo Business First’s C-Level Executives. The ninth annual awards recognize Western New York’s most effective business leaders. Boyd and 19 other executives will be honored virtually on October 15.

Boyd was selected for his role in leading the Kaleida Health’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, working tirelessly to protect our community and healthcare workers. His proactive, multipronged approach undoubtedly helped Western New York flatten the curve and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the community and within Kaleida Health’s facilities.

Prior to being named chief operating officer, Boyd, who has been with Kaleida Health since 1998, served as the executive vice president for business development and affiliations. He oversaw Kaleida Health’s affiliations with partners like Upper Allegheny Health System, Brooks Memorial Hospital, TLC Healthcare Network and Eastern Niagara Hospital. He also led numerous successful transactions and business development initiatives over the years, including MASH, Western New York Urology Associates, Cancer Care of Western New York and the Great Lakes Health Cancer Care Collaborative operation. He also assisted in the coordination of physician alignment opportunities as well as in the implementation of the professional steering committee recommendations for Great Lakes Health, Erie County Medical Center and Kaleida Health.

Bill Maggio, vice chairman of Kaleida Health’s Board of Directors and CEO of the Jacobs Institute, was also recognized on this year's list of honorees.

Congratulations on this well-deserved honor!
