After serving for 12 years, the president and CEO of Memorial Health Maggie Gill has announced her decision to leave the hospital to pursue other opportunities. The board of directors supported Gill’s decision. According to Harry Haslam, they tried to convince her to stay. However, all their efforts were in vain. Harry is the chair of the parent corporation of Memorial University Medical Center. Gill, who has not given the exact date of exit, promised the board that she would be available to help with the process of transition. Haslam applauded Maggie for her professionalism and the respect she maintained since she joined the company in 2004. He also wished her success in her future career.
Initially, Gill served as the chief operating officer before she was appointed to serve as the President and CEO of Memorial Health. In this corporation, she has been guiding all the VPs, senior VPs and physician leaders. Maggie has been in charge of physician relations, internal audit, government relations, the Heart & Vascular Institute, financial assistance, orthopedic and neuroscience programs, and Memorial Health University Physicians. Under Gill and Haslam’s leadership, the hospital agreed to partner with Novant Health, a collaboration that would have infused $295 million to the hospital within the first decade of the contract. Novant Health pulled out of the deal after Chatham County Hospital Authority repeatedly changed the contracts intended to make the project work. Maggie blamed the County Authority for ruining the deal. She played a central role during the disputes between her board of directors and the County Authority.
