The Queen’s Health Systems Welcomes New CEO, Dr. Jill Hoggard Green


HONOLULU - The Queen’s Health Systems today welcomed Dr. Jill Hoggard Green as the statewide system’s new president and chief executive officer. A nationally-recognized and highly-respected health care leader with 39 years of experience, Dr. Hoggard Green started work today, succeeding Art Ushijima.

“It is a tremendous honor to be here,” said Hoggard Green. “Over the coming weeks, I look forward to meeting the Queen’s team. Together, we’ll continue the work of our founders, King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma. We remain committed to our Mission of providing quality health care services to improve the well-being of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawaii.”

Hoggard Green previously served as president of Mission Hospital and served as chief operating officer of Mission Health in Asheville, North Carolina from 2011 until it was acquired by HCA Healthcare in February of this year. She has been recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s Top 25 Chief Operating Officers (2018) and Becker’s Top 130 Women Leaders in Healthcare (2016-2018).

Hoggard Green’s appointment is the result of a comprehensive nation-wide search that commenced last fall when Art Ushijima announced his upcoming retirement. Ushijima, The Queen’s Health Systems’ former president and chief executive officer, will work closely with Hoggard Green to ensure a smooth transition and will hold the title of advisor to the CEO until his retirement in January 2020.

“I want to thank Art Ushijima for his 30 years of dedicated service to the Queen’s mission and the successful growth of the health system,” said Hoggard Green. “We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”

Hoggard Green says she is humbled by the critical needs The Queen’s Health Systems serves in the communities throughout the islands.

“Together, we plan to continue advancing Queen’s good work, supporting clinical excellence through our physicians, offering resources to further develop our staff, and
most importantly, delivering quality care to our patients in service of our founders’ mission,” says Hoggard Green.

Prior to joining Mission Health, Hoggard Green served as chief operating officer of the Oregon Region of Peace Health, which included four hospitals, over 600 medical staff members, over 200 employed clinicians, and 4,500 caregivers. She also spent more than 15 years at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, Utah, a nationally recognized, vertically integrated not-for-profit health system. A registered nurse whose career includes work with oncology, bone marrow transplant units, and hospice programs and at leading hospitals, ambulatory and home health services in Utah, Oregon and North Carolina, Hoggard Green has dedicated her life to improving patient care.
