Nemours Children’s Health Martha McGill Recognized among 50 Most Powerful People in Business

ORLANDO, Fla. (Dec. 13, 2023) – Orlando Magazine has recognized Nemours Children’s Health Central Florida president, Martha McGill, MBA, MHA, among the October 2023 edition of its “50 Most Powerful People of 2023: Business” list. Each year, the magazine recognizes key leaders across the Central Florida region in areas that include politics and government, education, entertainment, philanthropy and community voices, and business.

McGill joined Nemours Children’s in 2015 and is a member of Nemours’ Florida Executive Cabinet. In addition to hospital operations, McGill is responsible for building and integrating Nemours’ network of practice sites and partnerships across Florida. McGill has more than 30 years of clinical operations and executive leadership experience in service line and program growth and development, margin improvement, physician enterprise management, merger and acquisition integration and government relations.

Prior to joining Nemours, McGill served as executive vice president and chief operating officer at Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH), now known as Nicklaus Children’s Health System, where she led the development of key service lines, the creation of a physician enterprise leadership and governance organization, modernization of the organization’s business infrastructure and support for MCH’s third Magnet accreditation.

McGill served as senior vice president and chief operating officer of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) at Egleston, a 255-bed acute care hospital that under her leadership returned to exceeding budgeted margin consistently. While at CHOA at Egleston, she led the development of the service line structure and strategy for growing cardiology, hematology/oncology and solid organ transplant programs, which became among the largest programs of their kind in the nation.

McGill also served in a key role with the successful merger and integration of Atlanta’s Scottish Rite Children’s Medical Center with Egleston Children’s Hospital, creating one of the nation’s largest pediatric health systems. With McGill’s leadership, Egleston exceeded revenue and growth projections.

Her tenure with CHOA also included serving as president of the 60-bed, aging, Hughes Spalding acute care facility in the inner city, and leading its turnaround and eventual integration with CHOA. Recognizing the importance of Hughes Spalding to the community it served, McGill developed a 10-year plan to ensure the hospital’s long-term viability and engaged leaders from Fulton County, Grady Memorial Hospital, the Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University in ensuring financial and operational targets were met consistently. Eventually, she led the capital campaign to build a replacement hospital, ensuring that vital services remained available for children in the community.

McGill earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Valdosta State University and her Master of Business Administration and Master of Health Administration from Georgia State University.
