Suburban Hospital Welcomes New President
Date: May 1, 2013
Gene E. Green, M.D.
The Suburban Hospital Board of Trustees named Gene E. Green, M.D., the ninth president of Suburban Hospital. Dr. Green, who joined Suburban Hospital on February 1, succeeds Brian Gragnolati, who served as president since 2001. As senior vice president in the Johns Hopkins Health System, Gragnolati now oversees the health system’s Community Division, which includes Howard County General Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital.
Prior to joining Suburban Hospital, Dr. Green, Suburban Hospital’s first physician president, held a variety of leadership positions with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians (JHCP), a large network of 400 primary care and specialty physicians with practices in Maryland (Montgomery County) and D.C.
In his last position as vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer, Dr. Green led the clinical operations of the 37 JHCP practices. Dr. Green’s efforts within JHCP led to significant improvements in patient, employee and physician satisfaction, as well as improvements in operations.
“Dr. Green is a proven leader with a strong background in quality and safety initiatives and clinical program development,” said Christopher J. Doherty, chairman of the Board of Trustees for Suburban Hospital. “As a physician who has spent his entire career working in community-based medicine, Dr. Green has a keen understanding of this environment.”
“Suburban Hospital will benefit greatly from Dr. Green’s knowledge of Johns Hopkins Medicine,” said former president Brian Gragnolati. “This will be extremely important as clinical integration efforts continue between Suburban Hospital and the Johns Hopkins system.”
Before entering medical school, Dr. Green worked as a paramedic and a small business owner in the Tidewater area of Virginia. He earned his medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School, where he also completed a residency in family medicine and internal medicine. He later earned his master of business administration degree from The Johns Hopkins University. The youngest of three children, Dr. Green grew up in a very close-knit family. “We were taught from a young age that at the core of life was caring for people and caring for our community,” said Dr. Green. “I have been given this opportunity to serve Suburban Hospital and its community, and it is an obligation I take very seriously. I will continue to support the great work of the staff and leadership at Suburban Hospital, and I am eager to learn more about the community we serve.”
