As a business, healthcare is in constant flux. Leading a healthcare company presents a host of unique challenges due to the incredible responsibility and changing legal framework that the medical industry faces. Memorial Health CEO Maggie Gill has spent nearly two decades meeting these challenges, both at Memorial and elsewhere.
Gill started her career after completing her undergraduate work at Florida State and earning an MBA with Honors from St. Leo University. She joined Tenet South Florida Health Systems, a regional network of hospitals in Tenet’s national organization, where she spent five years. She worked at several hospitals before eventually becoming CFO. Gill was recognized as Tenet’s top CFO on three occasions for her commitment to excellence.
In 2004, Maggie Gill left Tenet to join Memorial University Medical Center, becoming vice president of finance/managed care. She later became COO of Memorial Health and was appointed president and CEO by the board of directors in 2011.
One of Maggie Gill’s goals is to forge innovative partnerships to enhance the quality of care and service for medicare beneficiaries. Gill recently announced a partnership with Eon health to introduce an new no-premium Medicare Advantage plan with affordable prescription co-payments. The plan, which will be available to Medicare recipients in certain counties in Georgia and South Carolina starting in 2017, provides a wide array of benefits. Many of these benefits are not usually found in no-premium plans, such as dental, hearing, and free transportation. According to Gill, Memorial Health found common ground in Eon Health’s focus on preventive care. She believes that the plan’s focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle will make it a success.
