New President for Women & Infants
Women and Infants Hospital has a new president after Constance Howes announced her decision to step down.
Executive vice president and chief operating officer Mark Marcantano has taken the helm, according to a hospital statement. He’s been with Women and Infants since 2010, and before that held an executive post at Children’s Hospital in Boston. Like his predecessor Constance Howes, Marcantano is a lawyer by training.
The hospital says Howes plans to help her successor with the transition for the next six months. Then she’ll take on a new role in Women and Infants’ parent organization, Care New England, as executive vice president of women's health.
Women and Infants is one of the nation’s largest hospitals focusing solely on obstetrics, delivering more than eight thousand babies every year.
