February 15, 2023

Eduardo Conrado became president of Ascension Feb. 1. The change was announced by Joseph Impicciche. Impicciche preceded Conrado as Ascension's president and continues as the St. Louis-based system's chief executive officer.


Conrado was most recently Ascension's executive vice president and chief strategy innovation officer, a post he's held since July 2019. In announcing his promotion, Ascension credited him with leading the development and implementation of the system's strategic plan.

Conrado was a member of the Ascension Board of Directors from 2014 to 2018 before becoming the system's executive vice president and chief digital officer in September 2018. Prior to that, he was executive vice president and chief strategy and innovation officer for Motorola Solutions Inc.


Ascension also announced Jan. 31 that Craig Cordola has been named executive vice president of Ascension Capital, the system's independent investment management and comprehensive planning firm. He will transition from his responsibilities as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the system.

Ascension credited Cordola's leadership in the system's pandemic response as essential to ensuring caregivers had resources to safely and effectively care for patients and their families. Cordola, the statement said, has played a pivotal role in Ascension's environmental stewardship and he oversaw the launch of Ascension's consumer experience efforts.

St. Louis-based Ascension operates more than 2,600 sites of care — including 139 hospitals and more than 40 senior living facilities — in 19 states and the District of Columbia.
