Robert L. Sloan Retiring as Sibley Memorial Hospital's President and CEO
October 5, 2011
Robert L. Sloan announced his plans to retire following more than 26 years as President and Chief Executive Officer of Sibley Memorial Hospital. He will retire July 5, 2012.
Sloan began his tenure in 1985 and has overseen significant change and dynamic growth at Sibley. His leadership has led to improved and expanded clinical services, technology, facilities, quality, safety, finances and personnel. Sibley’s campus now covers 20 acres and is home to Grand Oaks, an assisted living community, the multi-use Sibley Renaissance, and a new medical building and parking garage, with a radiation oncology center now under construction and planning well underway for the new Sibley.
A recent success is his work with the Board of Trustees to bring Sibley Memorial Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Health System together. "I believe that this integration will ensure the hospital’s continued growth and mission of service," explains Sloan.
"It has been my privilege to know and to have worked closely with Bob Sloan for many years," said Edward J. Miller, Jr. chairman of the board of trustees. "It’s not often that you find a leader of his caliber. He is a man of integrity and sound judgment who has accomplished a great deal for Sibley and made a difference in the lives of others, strengthening our community."
After retirement, Sloan will continue to be active as a senior advisor to the Johns Hopkins Health System and with the Sibley Memorial Hospital Foundation and the new Jane Bancroft Robinson Foundation. Sloan also serves as a member of the CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield Board of Directors.
Prior to Sibley, Sloan served with distinction as a Captain in the U.S. Army from 1968 – 1972. He completed his master’s in health care administration, public administration and business management at George Washington University in 1973. His health care career began in 1973 as an Assistant Administrator at Prince George’s Hospital and Medical Center. In 1978, Sloan joined to Columbia Hospital for Women and Medical Center, Inc. as Executive Vice President and in 1985 he became Sibley’s Chief Executive Officer. He lives with his wife of 38 years, Janet; they have three grown children and five grandchildren.
