CEO Hugh Brown: Military Turned Healthcare Leader at St. David's Georgetown Hospital

Hugh Brown has served as president and CEO of St. David's Georgetown (Texas) Hospital since February 2007.

Before he joined St. David's Georgetown, Mr. Brown held various positions at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, S.C., including COO and chief development officer.

With Mr. Brown at the helm, St. David's Georgetown Hospital has been able to respond to the changing needs of its community. In the first nine months of 2012, the hospital's critical care admissions were up 21 percent compared to the first nine months of 2011 — so the hospital's leaders did something about it and added a new critical care physician.

"Our critical care capabilities have greatly improved over the last several years, and that is a testament to our dedication to recruit exceptional physicians and raise the level of care this hospital provides to the community," Mr. Brown said in a news release. "Our goal is to ensure the residents of this community are confident that they can come to our hospital no matter what their medical need may be."

Mr. Brown earned his undergraduate degree under a U.S. Navy ROTC scholarship and he served as a supply officer in the U.S. Navy in a nuclear submarine after college. For his service, Mr. Brown earned a Navy Achievement Medal and an Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal.

Mr. Brown then went on to receive a MBA from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C.
