The Life Of CEO Maggie Gill


Maggie Gill is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Memorial Health in Savannah, Georgia. She came to Memorial Health in 2004, after having served as Chief Financial Officer for Tenet Healthcare for 10 years. She graduated from Florida State University with a degree in English Language and Literature/Letters and from Saint Leo University with an MBA. In 2016 Gill as named as “135 Nonprofit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review.

Recently Memorial Health and Novant Health were in partnership talks. Maggie Gill indicated that these talks were called off because the Chatham County Hospital Authority, who were primarily only looking out for their own interests, overstepped their bounds and overly inserted themselves into the discussion. Gill would like the government authority to come back around to what was originally agreed to so that partnership talks can resume with Novant Health. The alternative, she said, was that Memorial Health might have to partner or be acquired by a for-profit hospital system. She went on to say that this would not be ideal because it would interfere with their nonprofit mission to provide a safety-net for the community in the region.

Also in 2016, Gill congratulated her team as Memorial Health won seven awards from the Georgia Medical Society. Some of the awards included their health care education initiative teaching teenaged drivers about safe driving, and two physicians winning Lifetime Achievements awards.

When not working one of Maggie Gill’s greatest joys in life is her family. She is married and has two young children, who keep her very busy. She especially enjoys traveling with her family. They enjoy a number of outdoors activities in the Savannah area such as hiking and fishing and they try to get out every weekend when they can.
