​Maryland Comptroller Honors Adventist Healthcare CEO


Peter Franchot, comptroller for the State of
Maryland, recently honored William “Bill” G. Robertson, current president and
chief executive officer of Adventist HealthCare (AHC). Robertson, who ends his 14-year tenure at the helm of AHC this week, received a certificate of recognition, which states:

“In recognition of your
exceptional tenure as the President and CEO of Adventist HealthCare. With
special appreciation for the health care system’s success and contributions
under your leadership to the State of Maryland, the regional economy and, most
important of all, to the health and well-being of our citizens.”

health initiatives since Robertson joined AHC in 2000. Franchot expressed
appreciation for Robertson’s contributions to Maryland and the region, and
confidence that Robertson’s vision for the health system will be implemented.

“I’ve known a lot of healthcare leaders, but
there aren’t any that can hold a candle to you,” Franchot said, while
presenting the certificate to Robertson at AHC’s headquarters in Gaithersburg,
Maryland. “Thank you for your innovation, leadership and stamina.”

In addition to the proclamation, Robertson was
awarded a Comptroller Medallion, a special honor presented to Marylanders who
have made a significant impact on the state.
