PHILADELPHIA – Tyler & Company placed Melvin Blanchard, M.D., as the new chair of the department of medicine at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC).
The search for the new chair of the department of medicine was led by Senior Vice President Dennis Kain and Senior Consultant Amy Rose.
GBMC is a 270-bed medical center (acute and subacute care) located in Maryland on a beautiful suburban campus. GBMC handles more than 26,700 inpatient cases and approximately 60,000 emergency room visits annually. The main campus includes three medical office buildings: Physicians Pavilion East, Physicians Pavilion West, and Physician Pavilion North I. GBMC has about 1,300 physicians on its medical staff, making it among the largest of any community teaching hospital in the mid-Atlantic.
GBMC and its physicians have long been recognized for outstanding quality and personalized service. Over the past decade, U.S. News & World Report has repeatedly cited the medical center as one of “America’s Best Hospitals” in several areas of service. Additionally, Baltimore magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” edition consistently recognizes more members of GBMC’s medical staff than that of any other hospital in the state.
Tyler & Company continued its long-standing relationship with the medical center in October 2018. Our retained executive search firm was chosen based on our team’s knowledge of the organization and its culture. The Tyler team partnered with a large and powerful search committee, including the CEO, to replace a long-standing and retiring chair.
“GBMC put together a formidable, high-level search committee that consisted of C-suite, board and clinical leadership – showing the importance of this role,” shared Kain.
Following the presentation of a robust and uniquely qualified and diverse slate of candidates, multiple interviews were conducted. Finally, a late-entry candidate was interviewed and hired. The client is so pleased that they requested a proposal to conduct yet another search at GBMC.
