Victor A. Broccolino, President and CEO of the Howard County General Hospital (HCGH) since January 1990, known fondly by many as “Vic,” has announced his intention to retire in January of 2014, just after the hospital completes its 40th anniversary year in 2013.
The hospital has experienced considerable growth during his tenure here. Patients can choose from a wide range of specialists conveniently located on or near the hospital’s campus, which has doubled in size since he came to HCGH. Expanding the facilities and scope of services could be Mr. Broccolino’s most important accomplishments – in the form of buildings, equipment and other important technologies that give Howard Countians access to top-quality healthcare.

Mr. Broccolino was instrumental in HCGH becoming part of the Johns Hopkins Health System and that forward-thinking vision continues to benefit patients in Howard County today.
An active member of the community, known for his generosity and support of community programs, he has served on numerous boards and committees.
Mr. Broccolino has over 46 years of health care experience. Prior to coming to Howard County General Hospital, he served as the Chief Executive Officer of Bon Secours Baltimore Health Corporation from 1986 to 1989. Broccolino is married and has four grown children and eleven grandchildren.

When asked about what he’ll do in his retirement, Mr. Broccolino says he will spend more time with his wife, children and 11 grandchildren. The employees and clinical staff he leaves behind at HCGH will no doubt carry on the culture of caring that he has instilled in each of us.
Thank you, Vic!
