Huntington Hospital’s Executive Director Promoted

Gerard X. Brogan, Jr., MD, executive director of Huntington Hospital, has been promoted to senior vice president and chief revenue officer at Northwell Health.

In his new job, Brogan will oversee revenue cycle, manage the reporting and coding of illnesses and mortality risks, and patient access capabilities. He will continue to serve as professor of emergency medicine at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.

“As head of Huntington Hospital for the past 3 ½ years, Gerry has been instrumental in using his analytical skills to improve clinical quality, operational efficiency and financial performance – a skill that will serve him well in his new position,” said Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer at Northwell Health.

 Brogan led the development of Huntington Hospital’s $53 million, 28,000-square-foot emergency department (ED) that opened in January 2017, doubling the size and volume of the ED. He also helped the hospital achieve the American College of Surgeons’ Level III Trauma Center designation. Also under Dr. Brogan’s leadership, Huntington’s clinical rankings in US News and World Report’s Best Hospitals are now among the top 10 percent in the state.

 Before his 2015 appointment to head Huntington Hospital, Brogan was medical director of Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Forest Hills Hospital after previously serving as vice president of emergency services at Plainview, Syosset, LIJ Forest Hills, LIJ Valley Stream and Southside hospitals, and medical director of the health system’s Public Access Defibrillation program.
