Bethesda’s Suburban Hospital has named Gene E. Green as the facility’s new president. He will succeed Brian Gragnolati as president of the hospital, which is a member of Johns Hopkins medicine.
Green is a medical doctor and the current chief medical officer for Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, a 400-provider group practice with 37 sites throughout the Maryland and Washington, DC, regions.
Suburban officials touted Green’s work at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, where they say he improved operating performance and increased patient, employee and physician satisfaction.
Green held numerous clinical and leadership positions at JHCP since he joined the group practice in 2003, according to a hospital news release.
Green worked as a paramedic and small business owner in Virginia before earning his medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and also holds a master of business administration degree from The Johns Hopkins University, according to the release.
“As someone who has spent his entire career working in community-based medicine, Gene is very familiar with the challenges of that environment,” Christopher J. Doherty, chairman of the board of trustees for Suburban Hospital, said in the statement.
Gragnolati will transition into a role as senior vice president for the Johns Hopkins Health System, overseeing the community division, which includes Suburban, Sibley Memorial and Howard County General hospitals.
