University Hospital and Medical Center announced on Thursday Joseph “Joe” Britner has joined as Chief Operating Officer.
Britner will lead operational enhancements, strengthen physician alignment and ensure successful growth across the hospital’s key service lines such as orthopedics, robotics and general surgery.
“For nearly 50 years, University Hospital and Medical Center has been providing unparalleled care and offering state-of-the-art technological advancements to Tamarac and the surrounding communities,” said Britner. “I was fortunate to work closely with the team in my previous role and look forward to furthering our mission and creating greater opportunities for growth across our service lines and partnerships.”
A resident of Heron Bay in Coral Springs, Britner earned his Bachelor of Science in supply chain management and marketing and his Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Indianapolis. He is a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and is a Purdue University Advanced Manufacturing Lean Practitioner.
For more than ten years, Britner has been instrumental in leading supply chain operations.
Before joining University Hospital, Britner served as East Florida Division’s Chief Operating Officer of Supply Chain for HCA HealthTrust, where he led 450 employees and operations across 14 hospitals, with more than 4,300 beds and $600 million in supply spend.
He also successfully oversaw COVID-19 logistics, such as the distribution of vaccines, personal protective equipment and ventilators.
Ben Harris, Chief Executive Officer of University Hospital, said he has made significant contributions to the organization, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Under his leadership, Joe and his team were integral in providing necessary supplies 24/7, ensuring that our Division hospitals could provide our patients, colleagues and community with the immediate support they needed,” said Harris.
While with the Division, Britner also oversaw the implementation of an in-house dialysis program for four of East Florida Division’s largest facilities. He also oversaw an emergency department single scan project, the largest in the Division, which improved nursing satisfaction and $3.2 million in increased revenue.
“Joe provided exemplary leadership while at Division, and I know he will help to elevate our hospital’s growth, patient experience and reputation,” said Harris.
