Health care is a difficult but important field, and those who get into it need to work hard, no matter what level they occupy. The leaders in particular need to be hard working individuals who can effectively lead their team of professionals to greatness. There are many people who occupy these leadership roles, but few can truly be considered a success. One of the people who can is Maggie Gill.
Maggie Gill is the CEO of Memorial Health, located in Savannah, Georgia. There, she gives direction to multiple departments and other high ranking individuals to provide the best health care possible. But, like all the great leaders, she did not start there. Gill joined Memorial Health in 2004 as a vice president of finance and managed care. Then, just one year later, she became the COO. Gill remained in that position until 2011, where she took up her current role as CEO.
Even before joining Memorial Health, Maggie Gill was a leader in the health care industry. She joined Tenet South Florida Health system as the CFO, providing financial leadership to several locations. These locations include Palmetto General Hospital, Shore Medical Center, and Coral Gables Hospital.
It is easy to say a leaders is effective, but it is harder to prove it. For Gill, proof came on November 1st. Thanks to a variety of factors, including her leadership and the excellence of her team, Memorial Health brought home seven awards in the 16th Annual Health Care Heroes Awards. This ceremony recognizes people of excellence and achievement in the medical field with a variety of categories, including health care innovation and community outreach. These awards went to several doctors and professionals in Memorial Health, and shows just how good the team and its leaders are. And, since Maggie Gill’s team earned so many, you can be sure that these are some of the best health care providers around.
