CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia’s Chief Executive Officer Jessica Long has announced her resignation effective April 6. Ms. Long plans to join her husband in Raleigh, NC, where he has accepted a position as CEO and general counsel at Well Care Health.
“Three years ago, Jessica took the helm at Cornerstone Medical Center and helped breathe new life into a facility that had been shuttered and was in bankruptcy,” said Janelle Reilly, chief operating officer, CHI Memorial. “She assembled a team of passionate physicians and healthcare professionals to develop a vision for a new future and set out to restore the community’s faith in the quality of care being delivered at Cornerstone.”
"While Ms. Long’s accomplishments are many, highlights include leading the development of a new brand, mission, vision and values to support cultural transformation; successfully leading the hospital through multiple accreditation surveys; supporting a robust upgrade of the radiology equipment to better serve the community; and navigating the team through implementation of an electronic medical record.
"From its early opening to today, Ms. Long and her team have significantly grown the number of patients being treated each day through the emergency department and has firmly reestablished the trust of those who depend on local access to quality healthcare for emergency needs," officials said.
Ms. Long has transitioned her duties to Angie Hullander, who will serve as administrator and special operations leader at CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia.
