Neil J. Moore is the new president and chief executive of Dimensions Healthcare System in Prince George’s County.
Moore, who appointment was announced Thursday after a unanimous vote by Dimensions’ board, stepped in last month as acting chief to replace Kenneth Glover. Glover resigned after he became the focus of an internal investigation into alleged kickbacks while Jack B. Johnson (D) was county executive.
Glover left the health-care company as federal officials investigated Johnson’s dealings and spinoff cases. Johnson began serving a seven-year federal prison term in February after pleading guilty last year to extortion and witness- and evidence-tampering.
As he took charge after Glover’s departure, Moore dismissed Glover’s public relations chief, Louise Ross, and his chief of staff, Linda Currie.
Moore has been Dimensions’ chief financial officer for nearly seven years. From 1989 to 2005, he served in senior leadership positions in health-care organizations in New York City.
“Neil Moore is a seasoned healthcare executive. He is best qualified to lead our system,” said C. Philip Nichols Jr., Dimensions board chairman, in a prepared statement. “He knows our patients, our doctors, and the needs of our community. No one is better equipped to implement our plans for achieving ‘best in class’ medical care for the 180,000 patients who come to our facilities each year as well as our plans to join the University of Maryland Medical System.”
Dimensions operates the county-owned Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly and other health-care facilities in Prince George’s.
