Rose Medical Center Names Hollie Seeley as Chief Operating Officer

Denver, Colo. – April 19, 2018 – Rose Medical Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Hollie Seeley as chief operating officer (COO). Seeley, a seasoned hospital executive, will be part of the executive team at Rose and will lead and oversee operations for the hospital.

Seeley comes to Rose from HealthONE sister hospital Swedish Medical Center, where she has served as vice president of operations for the past two years. She began her career with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, where she served as director of emergency and trauma services.

After transitioning to her role as vice president of HealthONE AirLife Denver, Seeley gained experience as the chief executive responsible for overseeing the expansion of services. This included orchestrating a turnaround from 30 years of financial losses, leading to the program's most successful year in 2017. Simultaneously, Seeley served as vice president of emergency medical services strategy for HCA Continental Division. 

She transitioned to Swedish Medical Center in 2016, where she oversaw improvements in throughput for the emergency department and implemented infection prevention measures with the “double clean strategy.” She got her start in healthcare as a registered nurse in hospital emergency departments in Denver. She has extensive experience with quality, patient satisfaction, staffing, physician engagement and operations.

“Hollie has demonstrated consistent excellence in operations, process improvement, quality metrics and the patient experience,” says Ryan Tobin, president and chief executive officer at Rose Medical Center. “She will be a tremendous asset to Rose and we are thrilled to have her on our team.”

Seeley earned her master's degree in business administration from the University of Colorado at Denver.
