Hill brings experience as community-based health care leader and HIV researcher to Vivent Health
Vivent Health is pleased to announce the addition of Brandon J. Hill, Ph.D., as its new Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, effective July 18.
“The fight against AIDS requires strong, experienced and compassionate leaders,” Vivent Health President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Gifford said. “Brandon Hill is just that. His commitment to the communities we serve who far too often are pushed to the edges of society is relentless. He thrives as a business executive who is equally an unyielding advocate for health equity and racial and social justice.”
Dr. Hill is a graduate of Indiana University, having obtained both a bachelor’s in gender studies and a doctorate in gender studies with a concentration in psychology from the Bloomington, Ind., school. He has more than 15 years of experience in health care and leadership in HIV, LGBTQIA+ and women’s health.
He has extensive operational and research expertise, having worked previously as the executive director of education, research and advocacy at the Howard Brown Community Health Center in Chicago and as the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains, which serves Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
“I am honored to join such an innovative and patient-centered organization,” Dr. Hill said. “Vivent Health’s nationally recognized HIV Medical Home Model has improved the lives of thousands of people living with HIV. I hope to bring my own experiences as community-based health care leader and HIV researcher to Vivent and further our mission of providing exceptional comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services for all people affected by HIV.”
