Jill Hoggard Green, PhD, RN was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of The Queen’s Health Systems (QHS) on September 30, 2019.
QHS is a nonprofit corporation that was established to provide expanded health care capabilities to the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Basin. Although established in 1985, QHS’ legacy of caring for the people of Hawaii dates back to 1859, when King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma founded The Queen’s Hospital to “stay the wasting hand,” to stem the tide of diseases during a time when epidemics were sweeping the islands.
Today, QHS is Hawaii’s oldest and preeminent family of healthcare-related companies that includes four hospitals on three islands, including The Queen’s Medical Center (formerly known as The Queen’s Hospital), a 575-bed acute care facility that is the state’s only Level I trauma center; more than 7,000 employees; a diagnostic laboratory; a home care agency; ambulatory care facilities; and more than 1,500 affiliated physicians and providers in its statewide network.
Before joining Queen’s, Dr. Hoggard Green served as Chief Operating Officer of Mission Health and President of Mission Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. Mission Health is a $2 billion, 12,000-employee health system comprised of six hospitals, including a 770-bed teaching hospital; multiple ambulatory care facilities; an 800
+ provider group practice; a $100+ million post-acute providers; a health plan; and related services. In 2018, for the sixth time in the previous seven years, Mission Health was named one of the nation’s Top 15 Health Systems by IBM Watson Health.
Prior to Mission Health, Dr. Hoggard Green served as Chief Operating Officer of the Oregon Region of Peace Health, which included four hospitals, over 600 medical staff members, over 200 employed clinicians, and 4,500 caregivers. She also spent more than 15 years at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, Utah, nationally recognized, vertically integrated not-for-profit health system.
A registered nurse whose career includes work with the oncology and bone marrow transplant units at a Level I trauma facility and at leading hospitals, ambulatory, and home health services in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon, Dr. Hoggard Green has dedicated her life to improving patient care.
Dr. Hoggard Green received her Bachelor of Science (nursing), Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy (concentration in health system leadership, quality, and models of care) from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.
