Inova Mount Vernon Hospital is proud to welcome Deborah Addo as its new CEO. She replaces Barbara Doyle, who left at the end of 2013 after seven years in the position. Don Brideau, MD, served as interim CEO.
Addo comes from Meritus Healthcare in Hagerstown, the largest healthcare provider in Western Maryland. There she served as chief operating officer and senior vice president. She brings nearly three decades of healthcare operations and management experience to Inova, with areas of expertise including strategic planning, financial management and population health.
“I am privileged to join Inova, which is deeply committed to the Mount Vernon community and expanding its resources to address the healthcare needs of its residents, especially children and seniors,” said Addo.
Addo earned her bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a master’s degree in Public Health from Walden University. She joined Inova on June 2, 2014.
