Calvert Health System (CHS) has named Lisa Broome as vice president for human resources. She brings significant experience to her new position having served in several HR leadership roles throughout her 25-year career with large and mid-size companies in manufacturing, defense contracting and computer services.
Broome replaces Tony Bladen, who has been promoted to vice president of operations. Bladen joined Calvert in 2011 after an impressive 30-year career with the FBI. In this role, he will be responsible for leading the day-to-day operations of the hospital and overseeing key service lines including cardiovascular, emergency services, oncology and diagnostic imaging among others. He is a graduate of American University and earned his master’s degree in public administration.
“Tony is an innovative, results-oriented executive who brings wide-ranging leadership experience to this position,” said Dean Teague, president and CEO of the health system. “I believe his strong history of relationship-building and focus on customer service will enable us to continually enhance the patient experience and the quality of care we provide.”
Broome comes to CHS from Columbia-based American Wood Fibers, Inc. where she partnered with the senior management team to set strategic direction for the entire company, which has 10 manufacturing sites across the country. Prior to that, she performed HR consulting for small businesses and was senior vice president of Sotera Defense Solutions in Herndon, VA.
She will be responsible for the day-to-day HR operations, HR strategic direction, organizational development and training and employee relations for the health system, which includes Calvert Memorial Hospital and its subsidiaries. She has a master’s in management from the University of Maryland in College Park.
“Lisa has a keen understanding of the critical importance of all our employees to our mission of providing top quality health care,” said Teague. “Our strongest asset is our more than 1,500 employees who help us deliver the best possible care for our patients.”
He went on to add that Broome is a strong team builder, mentor and excellent facilitator with a hands-on leadership style and management approach. “Lisa excels in dynamic, multi-tasking environments and has achieved substantial success as a change agent by increasing morale, productivity and efficiency through enhancements to existing operations.”
