HCA Healthcare UK appoints a new CEO of the London Bridge Hospital

HCA Healthcare UK is pleased to announce that Janene Madden has been appointed the new CEO of London Bridge Hospital, with effect from 1 January 2017.

Janene Madden will join London Bridge Hospital after a successful seven year tenure as Chief Executive of The Portland Hospital, also part of HCA Healthcare UK.

The Portland is the UK’s only private hospital dedicated to the healthcare of women and children and over the course of her leadership Janene has established The Portland’s reputation for outstanding care.

Under Janene’s leadership, The Portland has developed plans to double the size of its children’s facility, already the largest in the UK. In February 2015 planning permission was granted for a £20 million expansion.

Janene has also supported some the UK’s leading consultants to bring the latest life-improving treatments to The Portland, putting it at the forefront of ground-breaking new medicine, for example the Hospital was the first in the private sector to perform a Selective Doral Rhizotomy.

Mike Neeb, CEO of HCA Healthcare, said;

“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Janene Madden as the Chief Executive of the London Bridge Hospital. Throughout her tenure at The Portland Hospital she has been completely focused on ensuring the delivery of the absolute best in patient care and I know she will continue with this focus at the London Bridge Hospital.”

“In the interim Andrew Gore has being doing an excellent job in leading the facility and I would like to thank him for his work and support.”

Janene Madden, incoming CEO of London Bridge Hospital, said:

“London Bridge Hospital is already such an established and well operated facility, I am proud to be taking the reins at the beginning of what will be a very exciting year. As the campus develops my aim is to build on London Bridge Hospital’s reputation as a centre for medical excellence across a full range of specialties.

“I have had an incredible seven years at The Portland. I would like to thank my many excellent colleagues and the consultants who I have had the privilege to work with that make The Portland the world-class, patient-centred hospital that it is.”

Janene Madden will begin her role at London Bridge Hospital on 1 January 2017.

Aida Yousefi will be taking on the role of interim CEO of The Portland Hospital alongside her role as CEO of The Harley Street Clinic. Aida has been CEO of The Harley Street Clinic since 2014 having previously worked to lead world class cancer services across HCA UK.

Aida will work closely with the clinical and management teams of each facility to ensure continuity of exceptional care.
