DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — As BocaNewsNow.com continues to request reader stories concerning Delray Medical Center’s billing practices, we’ve learned that the hospital’s new CEO Maggie Gill is no stranger to being a stranger.
The Delray Medical Center job, which she just started, is Gill’s third job in fewer than three years. She comes to Delray Medical Center from Novant Health UVA which she started barely a year ago — in July of 2017. The UVA job followed several years as CEO of Memorial Health in Savannah, GA.
The Savannah Morning News reported this in April:
“The CEO of a nonprofit North Carolina-based health care provider offered former Memorial Health President/CEO Maggie Gill a job as market leader if she and her executive team could gain approval of an agreement that could have led to a takeover of the county hospital. In a six page letter dated June 3, 2011, and obtained by the Savannah Morning News, the takeover of the county’s safety net hospital would been the end game for a proposed three year plan by Novant Health.”
The deal never went through, but Gill did become CEO of Novant.
Gill’s South Florida position includes the title of CEO for Tenet’s Palm Beach Group which includes Delray, West Boca Medical Center, Good Samaritan, St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.
Gill joins Delray Medical Center at a time when its owner, Tenet Health, is facing a challenge. Tenet’s stock Wednesday closed at $26.78, well off its 52-week-high of $39.74. Earlier this year, Tenet sold two major Philadelphia-area hospitals — Hahnemann and St. Christopher’s. The nursing union told the Philadelphia Inquirer that it “experienced unsafe staffing and dangerous working conditions” under Tenet’s ownership.
Back in South Florida, US News and World Report has this to say about Delray Medical Center’s overall performance:
