Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Braselton has named Kevin Matson, MHA, as its executive director of Operations.
Matson joined NGMC in 2000 and has accumulated a broad range of experience during his 17 years with the organization. Kevin gained strong knowledge in hospital operations in his early years with NGMC, holding positions in housekeeping and inpatient care as a critical care tech in the Ronnie Green Heart Center. As he furthered his education and experience, he has served in progressive leadership positions involving patient access, safety, occupational medicine, occupational health and employee relations. Matson started serving as the interim executive director of Operations at NGMC Braselton last fall.
“Since joining us in late September, Kevin has demonstrated his excellent leadership ability by overseeing several key initiatives including our transition to a new electronic medical record, various construction projects and ongoing operations,” said Anthony Williamson, president of NGMC Braselton. “We are excited to have Kevin formally join the leadership team at NGMC Braselton, as he continues to advance within NGHS.”
