Margot Hartmann, PhD, MD, has served as president and CEO of Nantucket (Mass.) Cottage Dr. Margot HartmannHospital since October 2010.

Dr. Hartmann first joined Nantucket Cottage Hospital as an internist in 1999. Prior to being named CEO, she co-led NCH's emergency department, where worked to provide high-quality care in the high-volume area.

When Dr. Hartmann became CEO of Nantucket Cottage Hospital, she switched from treating patients hands-on to treating Nantucket's patient population in a different way. "We became aware that the hospital was in trouble," she says. "Doing this job is a chance to take care of patients in another way, by finding ways to sustain NCH." As CEO, Dr. Hartmann helped the hospital overcome $7.5 million in operating losses.

In recognition of her leadership success at Nantucket Cottage Hospital, Dr. Hartmann was named as "person of the year" by Nantucket Magazine in 2012. "It is lovely and heartwarming for me personally, and a great encouragement for the hospital," Dr. Hartmann says.
