Six years ago, Memorial Health board of directors decided to hire a new chief executive officer. These directors were looking for an individual who was visionary to bring back stability in the healthcare company. Four CEOs had been appointed in the last four years, and none of them had produced the desired results. At the end of the day, the directors chose Maggie Gill, to take up the position. Maggie was given the position because she has the expertise and skills that were needed for the position. The members present voted unanimously to make her the CEO and president of the company.
For six years now, Maggie Gill has worked hard to stabilize the company. People say that she is the force behind the successful institution. Under her leadership, Memorial Health has registered significant results. However, the successful businesswoman has had her share of challenge. She has had to face the many restrictions and reimbursements in the health care industry.
The Affordable Care Act which is very popular in the country has transformed the industry significantly by helping individuals to acquire insurance. However, many people are still not able to get reliable healthcare. In a study conducted recently, many people living in Georgia are still not insured, and this is a significant problem.
Maggie Gill and her team in Memorial Health have been in the industry for some time now, and they know that the country can only advance its health care system in a favorable environment. This is why she has tried to focus on wellness, health, and prevention of diseases so that she and her company can survive the health climate.
Maggie and her team have come up with a program to improve the overall health of the communities in their jurisdiction. The program, known as Population Health is already in place, and it has transformed the lives of many people in the country. The program focuses on educating patients about the best ways of preventing diseases. This has helped in reducing the cost of healthcare, and the delivery of health services. The institution wants to ensure that everyone in Georgia has the services they need.
