Mike Robertson Named CEO of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital

After serving as interim CEO since July 2008, Mike Robertson has been named president and chief executive officer of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital.

Previously, Robertson was vice president of operations for Piedmont Mountainside, overseeing clinical and support services. He joined Piedmont Mountainside in July 2002 as manager of respiratory care. He also assisted with performance improvement and was promoted to vice president of operations in March 2006.

“Mike has been an effective leader, and we are excited about his permanent role as CEO,” said Gregory A. Hurst, chairman of the board of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital and executive vice president/COO for Piedmont Healthcare. “His healthcare experience, years at Piedmont Mountainside and dedication to the community make him a valuable member of our team and a tremendous asset to those we serve.”

Under Robertson’s leadership, Piedmont Mountainside recently completed a $7 million construction project which included expanding the ICU, laboratory, cafeteria and lobby; adding six new beds for the clinical decision unit; and renovations to accommodate other support services. In addition, the MRI unit was established in a permanent in-house location, and a new interventional radiology suite was added.

A Georgia native, Robertson earned his bachelor’s degree in respiratory therapy from the Medical College of Georgia and a master’s of business administration from Shorter College in Rome. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Georgia Association of Healthcare Executives. Mike and his wife, Georgette, live in Ball Ground with their two children, Taylor and Will.

Robertson took the helm at Piedmont Mountainside when former president and CEO Ed Lovern was named executive vice president and chief administrative officer for Piedmont Healthcare.
