Corpus Christi Medical Center has named Hilda Dalfonso as chief financial officer (CFO) for two hospitals and five affiliated sites of care. Dalfonso will assume the new role on June 1, and replace longtime CFO Chris Nicosia, who recently retired.

Dalfonso brings 23 years of financial, operational and business management experience in the healthcare field to the hospital. She began her career as administrator of Quest Diagnostics in Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, in 1999 and has served in various finance positions internationally and in the United States.

Most recently, Dalfonso was the vice president of finance of SCL Health Good Samaritan Medical Center, a 234-bed hospital in Lafayette, Colorado, where she provided leadership over financial activities and key clinical/non-clinical operational areas. In addition, she served as interim leadership in support of the chief operating officer and oversight of affiliated departments.

Dalfonso’s accomplishments during her career include successfully developing key service line growth strategies, expediting facility expansions and securing the center of excellence designations for robotic surgery. She also co-led a hospital incident command team and provided operational leadership in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hilda’s previous experience as a healthcare executive and her proven leadership record will be an asset to Corpus Christi Medical Center as we continue to expand our operations and patient services to meet the growing needs of the communities we serve,” said Eric Evans, CEO of Corpus Christi Medical Center. “I look forward to working with her and have no doubt she will be a great addition to our senior leadership team.”

Dalfonso received her Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration and Master of Business Administration in Finance and Accounting from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. She is a fellow of the Healthcare Financial Management Association and American College of Healthcare Executives.
