Saint Peter’s Healthcare System Welcomes New Chief Human Resources Officer

Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, the parent company of Saint Peter’s University Hospital, has appointed Edward “Ed” Daech as vice president and chief human resources officer (CHRO).
Daech, whose appointment was effective Feb. 21, has 24 years of experience in the corporate and health care sectors.
“Ed has a wealth of experience in health care, specifically with Catholic-based institutions, that will effectively support Saint Peter’s mission while continuing to advance our strategic vision for the future,” said Leslie D. Hirsch, FACHE, president and CEO of Saint Peter’s Healthcare System. “We welcome Ed to the Saint Peter’s family and look forward to his leadership and expertise to help position Saint Peter’s as an employer of choice and to provide our employees with a great work environment and experience.”
Daech previously worked with Ascension, one of the nation’s largest Catholic health systems that operates 141 hospitals and other healthcare facilities in over 20 different states with 150,000 employees.
During his nine years at Ascension, he served in various human resource leadership positions, most recently as a regional vice president of human resources. In this role, he served as the human resources leader for Ascension’s Nursing and Clinical Operations Division, as well as the Health Ministry Markets in Indiana, Tennessee and Alabama, which consisted of 35 hospitals and 32,000 employees.
Previously at Ascension, he held positions as the vice president of human resources for the Tennessee Ministry Market and executive director of human resources for Saint Thomas Health.
Prior to Ascension, Daech was with Community Health Systems, a company that operates over 80 affiliated hospitals in 16 states, where he first served as the human resources director, and then the assistant chief executive officer of Heartland Regional Medical Center. In this role he had a wide variety of operational responsibilities.
Daech earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at North Central College in Chicago and a Bachelor of Science degree in Workforce Education and Development from Southern Illinois University.
He is certified as a senior professional in human resources and earned a certificate from the human resource learning partnership executive program—a premier strategic learning experience for senior level and high potential human resources professionals from leading global companies.
“Saint Peter’s is truly a special place filled with people who are passionate about the work we do,” Daech said. “Our organization is one that engages its employees, fostering an environment of mutual support and collaboration in implementing best practices to provide the highest level of quality care to our patients. I welcome the opportunity to lead a human resources team whose goal is to attract, retain and engage skilled and compassionate employees who believe in Saint Peter’s Catholic mission and strive for service excellence.”
