Emory names new CEOs for 2 hospitals | Business
ATLANTA -- Emory Healthcare has hired new CEOs to run two of its top hospitals.
Marilyn Margolis has been named CEO of Emory Johns Creek Hospital. She began her Emory career more than 30 years ago, working as a nurse. She has led nursing teams in various areas throughout the Emory Healthcare system.
Margolis became CNO of Emory Johns Creek Hospital in 2011, then was promoted in 2013 to CNO and vice president of operations. She became interim CEO last September.
Margolis received the Georgia Hospital Association's 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Daniel Owens is the new CEO of Emory University Hospital Midtown. He began working for the health system in 1994 and has held numerous operations positions, including corporate controller for Emory's corporate finance department.
He became vice president of operations at the Midtown hospital in 2012, and was named interim CEO in September 2014.
"Marilyn and Dan have both been with the Emory system for many years, and it is not only their tenure with the organization that made them the perfect fit for these positions, but also their combined skill and knowledge of our healthcare system that was an advantage," Dane Peterson, president of Emory Healthcare Hospital Group, said in a statement. "These two individuals rose above the rest as true leaders and innovators who will partner with our physician and staff teams to drive continued success in our hospitals."
Margolis and Owens both assumed their new posts on Jan. 4.
