Gwinnett Medical Center’s Vice President of Planning and Business Development Michael Boblitz was recently named a “Rising Star” by Becker’s Hospital Review, a leading print and online publication for executives in the healthcare industry.

The publication’s annual list features 50 executives from around the country – all under the age of 40 – who have made considerable accomplishments in their relatively short careers. Boblitz was one of two executives included on the national list from Georgia and the only one in metro Atlanta.

“Michael is a respected and accomplished leader at Gwinnett Medical Center,” said Phil Wolfe, president and CEO of Gwinnett Medical Center. “We are extremely proud to have him on our team.”

In its description of Boblitz, the publication stated “Mr. Boblitz always knew he wanted to work in healthcare — not only does his father work in the field, but his great-great-uncle is George Washington Crile, one of the founders of the Cleveland Clinic. In his relatively short career, the 39-year-old has been an adjunct professor at Harrisonburg, Va.-based James Madison University and held roles at more than five healthcare organizations, including Lancaster (Pa.) General Health, Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine and Bel Air, Md.-based Upper Chesapeake Health.”

Boblitz received his Bachelor of Science from James Madison University and Master in Business Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University.  He resides in Hoschton, Georgia with his wife, Amy, and their two sons.
