Recently, Maggie announced her decision to further progress her professional career, in the way of looking in new directions. She is exiting Memorial Health, as its CEO. The health care institution is located in Savannah, Georgia. The decision to part friendly ways with the predominant health care provider is that of Maggie’s own decision. She has provided a great deal of leadership, over the years, at the healthcare institution. Memorial, naturally will miss the leadership directives of Ms. Gill; however, wishes Maggie all the best.
