FMG Leading Expands Healthcare Team with Long-Time Health System Executive John Hill

Former CEO joins advisory firm at the forefront of healthcare transformation.

SAN DIEGO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FMG Leading, the human capital advisory firm partnering with organizations focused on US healthcare transformation, has expanded its healthcare advisory team with the addition of veteran industry executive John Hill. Nationally recognized for leading for-profit and non-profit health systems and physician groups in both highly competitive urban communities and rural areas, Mr. Hill brings to the firm and its growing number of clients 25 years of healthcare executive leadership experience. He will serve as a Principal and an Executive Advisor to FMG Leading’s Hospital and Health Systems practice.

Mr. Hill joins FMG Leading as healthcare organizations face one of the industry’s most challenging environments to date, marked by extensive people-centric issues, including a shrinking workforce, leadership gaps, and historically low rates of engagement. Adding to these is the need for the highest level of performance to best compete amidst continuing consolidation, reimbursement pressure, and the shift to value-based care.

“Today’s healthcare leaders are being asked to deliver on a wide range of ambitious goals even as they face existential challenges that not only threaten their organizations but community-wide access to care,” said Matt Brubaker, CEO and Chairman of FMG Leading. “They derive tremendous benefit from partnering with advisors, like John, who have, themselves, traversed this difficult terrain, and can speak directly to the opportunities for those that strategically invest in human capital solutions.”

Mr. Hill is the former CEO of Bozeman Health in Montana. He also served as Senior Vice President and CEO at PeaceHealth Oregon West Network, President and CEO at HCA’s Medical Center of Aurora/Centennial Medical Plaza, and Chief Operating Officer of HCA’s Medical City – Dallas. Today he serves as a results-driven strategist, operational advisor, and coach, offering unique and experiential techniques to improve and build leadership impact.

“Helping prominent leaders navigate today’s intricate healthcare environment is a truly gratifying experience,” expressed Mr. Hill. “At FMG Leading, my colleagues and I are excited to share our expertise in human capital solutions and thought leadership, and enable more organizations to achieve long-term success.”
