CEO Greg Seiler: Metropolitan Methodist Hospital's Master of Expansion
Prior to taking the lead at Metropolitan Methodist, Mr. Seiler was CEO of Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen, Texas. He also served as COO of Riverside (Calif.) Community Hospital, COO of Gulf Coast Medical Center in Panama City, Fla., and vice president of cardiovascular and neuroscience services at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio throughout his career.
While at the helm of Rio Grande Regional, Mr. Seiler helped grow the hospital's market share, aided it in receiving Level III trauma designation and improved the hospital's patient and employee satisfaction.
After his success at Rio Grande Regional, Mr. Seiler jumped right into his duties at Metropolitan Methodist Hospital by taking the lead on a $50 million expansion project. The hospital is expanding its downtown campus in order to take on an expected increase in patient volume. "The growth that's occurring both in downtown San Antonio and south of San Antonio has created the need for more beds," Mr. Seiler told the HCA Executive Development blog earlier this year.
Mr. Seiler is no stranger to expansion projects. When he served as COO of Riverside, he oversaw a $20 million emergency department expansion and opened its Heart Care Institute.
Mr. Seiler earned a master's degree in healthcare administration from Trinity University in San Antonio.
