February 20, 2016

Martha’s Vineyard Hospital (MVH) trustees announced today that following an extensive and successful search, they had selected Joseph “Joe” L. Woodin for the position of President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Woodin is expected to take the helm of the hospital in May when longtime CEO Timothy J. Walsh will retire after serving for 15 years in his leadership role at MVH.

Mr. Woodin will be coming from Gifford Hospital in Randolph, Vermont where he has been serving as their president and CEO since 2000.

Tim Sweet, chairman of the hospital’s search committee and the board of trustees said, “We feel incredibly fortunate to have found someone of Joe’s caliber and long experience to take over the helm of our hospital.”

Joe Woodin has over 25 years of experience in the healthcare field and is considered a dynamic leader with an outstanding record of achievement. He is a strategic thinker and results-oriented manager who is known for being collaborative and helping organizations achieve their business objectives and mission.

Concludes Mr. Sweet: “Based on Joe’s success in a startlingly similar hospital environment and after meeting with him, we unanimously agreed that Joe is custom-made for the challenges ahead at MVH.”
