Becker’s Names APD’s Sue Mooney to List of 110 Rural Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know


Sue Mooney, MD, MS, FACOG, CEO and president of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, was named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s 2024 list of 110 rural hospital and health system CEOs to know.

Rural hospitals and health systems bring healthcare services to remote areas that might otherwise lack access. The CEOs featured on this list are expanding service lines, hiring talented caregivers, improving facilities through renovations and new construction, and much more. These individuals are essential to the successes of the rural hospitals they helm.

Dr. Mooney joined APD’s medical staff as an obstetrician/gynecologist in 2000, a role she served in until 2005. She then pursued fellowship training for two years before rejoining the hospital as the medical director of quality, and later assuming the chief medical officer role. She became president and CEO for the hospital in April of 2013. Dr. Mooney’s leadership has contributed to the hospital seeing the highest employee engagement rating within the Dartmouth Health system for the past two years. She also created a diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging coordinator position in 2022, fostering an environment where everyone feels seen and heard.

APD was one of three Dartmouth Health system members on the list. To view the full list, visit
