Cadigan is Senior Vice President for Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer for Cambridge Health Alliance, an integrated health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston’s metro-north communities.

Prior to joining CHA, Cadigan held numerous leadership positions in both community and academic medical centers, including Quincy Medical Center and Boston Medical Center. She received a bachelor of science in nursing from Salve Regina University and a master of science in adult/gerontological nursing from Boston University, and holds Nurse Executive, Advanced certification.

“Regis is passionate about student success and is committed to the ongoing development of nursing leaders, as am I,” says Cadigan. “I respect President Hays and the work Regis has done on the graduate level as well as undergraduate.”

Regis College President, Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN, noted that “Elizabeth is a seasoned nursing leader with over 20 years of experience and she is a highly respected patient advocate. I had the privilege of serving on the Massachusetts Organization of Nurse Executives board with Elizabeth and saw firsthand the passion and dedication she brings to any organization she works with. I very much look forward to working with her at Regis.”

Cadigan is the recipient of the Mary B. Conceison Award for Excellence in Nursing Leadership by the Massachusetts Organization of Nurse Executives. She has served on numerous Boards during her career, including the Organization of Nurse Leaders (past president), Cambridge Council on Aging, and the Massachusetts Hospital Association, and she is an active member of numerous healthcare and educational associations. Additionally, she holds a longstanding commitment to the elderly and has designed and supported programs that help families manage illness and address end-of-life decision-making.
