Maggie Gill recently announced her resignation from the Memorial Health Center as the president and chief executive officer. She stated that she had to separate from the facility to pursue other professional interests. Maggie will continue to act as the hospital’s president until the board finds a suitable fit. The board plans to find a replacement through independent means or hire a professional human resource management firm to execute the job. The chairman of the board, Harru Haslam, stated that Maggie’s resignation was unexpected by all staff members. He revealed that before she joined the team, Memorial Health was lagging behind with a loss of 100 million dollars. Maggie’s recruitment into the administration turned around the situation in only five to six years. The board committee has selected a special committee to draft the terms and conditions of Maggie’s separation from the hospital.
