Maggie Gill has worked hard as the president and CEO of Memorial University Medical Center, or MUMC, to have it become an award winning facility. Memorial got recognized by the Georgia Medical Society this year and Gill herself was recognized as one of the top CEOs. Another help in this is that Mercer University has increased their presence there for their training of new doctors.
In 2016, MUMC received six awards from the Georgia Medical Society. The hospital won the Health Care Innovation category for their work with Mercer University. The Health Care Education award came because of their teen driver program. MUMC had two winners in the Community Outreach category. The safety officer for the hospital and the couple that supported the Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital won. In the Institutions/ Organizations category, the MUMC infectious disease response team won. Finally, two of the hospital doctors won in the Physicians Lifetime Achievement category.
Earlier in 2016, Gill was recognized for her work by being named in the135 Nonprofit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know 2016 list by Becker’s Hospital Review. The people selected for the list run some of the biggest and well respected hospitals in the nation. To be named on this list means that the person is recognized for their work via nomination and editorial discretion.
Maggie Gill considers herself a mother to both her family and the hospital. She is married with two kids. She says their favorite things to do are hike and fish, which she gets to do quite a bit of around Savannah. Gill earned her bachelor’s degree at Florida State University and an MBA from Saint Leo University. Before coming to MUMC, she was the chief financial officer for Tenet South Florida Health System. She arrived at MUMC as the vice president of of finance and managed care in 2004, promoted in 2005 to chief operating officer, and then she became president and CEO in 2011.
