Maggie Gill has seen her career as the President and CEO of the Savannah, Georgia based healthcare system, Memorial Health flourish in recent times as her team of medical professionals won a number of 2016 Healthcare heroes Awards. A changing healthcare environment in the U.S. poses the CEO with a new set of challenges she is facing with a new plan, known as the “Pathway To Excellence” strategy that is designed to push forward the healthcare provider over the course of 2017; the idea behind the new strategy comes as Gill is looking to lead Memorial into the future as a stand alone healthcare provider as opposed to seeking a partnership with others.
Memorial Health had already reached high levels of success as the university based medical group had achieved a series of improvements since Maggie Gill was appointed to the dual positions of CEO and President and CEO in 2011. Maggie Gill saw her impressive work pay off with seven awards at the Georgia Medical Society’s annual Healthcare Heroes Awards in 2016 where the group saw individual and group awards given to Memorial Health.
Despite the success Maggie Gill and Memorial Health achieved at the Healthcare Heroes Awards ceremony the CEO has looked to approach the challenges faced in the healthcare industry with a plan designed along with Premier Inc. The use of strategic planning with Premier shows how Maggie Gill looks to partner with the best improvement companies in the U.S. to ensure a successful future for the company. Maggie Gill believes the restructuring of Memorial Health will see the group be positioned in a better place to cope with the changing market demands provided by the Affordable Care Act and other evolving areas of the medical industry. Continuing the 15 year association Memorial Health has with North Carolina based Premier Inc. is seen as evidence of the continued improvements Maggie Gill is hoping to make for the patients and staff of the healthcare provider.
