Duke Health Names Gregory Pauly to Key Leadership Roles
DURHAM, N.C. – Duke Health has named Gregory Pauly to three key leadership roles: group president of Acute Care Services for Duke University Health System; president of Duke University Hospital; and vice dean for Clinical and Academic Integration at Duke University School of Medicine.
In these roles, Pauly will provide oversight of the strategic direction, fiscal management, and program development for all acute care services across DUHS, including Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital, and Duke Raleigh Hospital campuses.
Pauly -- currently executive vice president and chief operating officer for Massachusetts General Hospital and the Massachusetts General Physicians Organization -- will join Duke on Jan. 31, 2024.
“Greg is an accomplished health care executive with proven experience in hospital operations, ambulatory practice management, strategic business planning, and clinical program development,” said Thomas A. Owens, M.D., executive vice president and chief operating officer of Duke University Health System.
“With his vast experience in the operations and administration of a large academic medical center and ambulatory care network, Greg brings a wealth of knowledge and visionary leadership to his new role as group president for Acute Care Services and president of Duke University Hospital,” Owens said.
“As vice dean, Pauly will collaborate closely with clinical chairs, vice deans, IT leaders and other leaders in the School of Medicine and the health system, as well as other relevant Duke schools, to further strengthen the link between clinical and academic missions,” said Mary Klotman, M.D., executive vice president for Health Affairs, Duke University and dean of the School of Medicine.
During his more than 20-year career at Mass General, Pauly led development of multiple system-wide service lines, the launch of an ambulatory care transformation program, and extensive work to reduce barriers to discharge and length of stay.
Pauly was instrumental in enhancing the integration with system physicians through new employment and compensation models as well as developing new plans for provider growth.
