There aren’t many female professional in the medical field operating high-level positions. Those that do run entire hospitals are truly professional. Many find a hospital they’re comfortable at and begin working their way to the top. Maggie Gill was different. Maggie is a Florida-based financial professional who has worked all over Florida. She has many years of experience running multiple departments of medical facilities. After graduating from Florida State University, with a bachelor’s degree, she attended Saint Leo University. There, she earned an MBA before moving on to Wharton School.
After leaving Wharton, she joined the medical field as a financial officer. The first facility she worked at was Tenet South Florida Health. She was so effective at Tenet that she won Tenet’s Outstanding CFO award multiple times. Eventually, she earned tenure working with Tenet. She then began working Palmetto General Hospital. After that, she worked at North Shore Medical Center. Finally, she worked at Coral Gables Hospital.
Maggie was an expert at operating the financial aspects of the hospitals she worked at. She began shining so brightly that Memorial University Medical Center wanted her to work in its financial department. In 2004, Maggie was named vice president of finance/managed care at Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC). A year later, she was named Chief Operating Officer. It would be a while before her next promotion, but she was more than qualified. In 2011, Memorial Health named her president and chief executive officer.
Maggie takes great pride in her role as a leader. She’s responsible for providing all vice presidents, senior vice presidents, and physician leaders with instruction and company guidance. She also handles all the many relations between physicians, government, internal audits, and Memorial Health University Physicians. She also works closely with many of Memorial Health’s programs and institutes.
Recently, the Georgia Hospital Association hosted its 87th Annual Membership Meeting. Leaders from all from hospitals over the state gather to network.
