Larry Gellerstedt III
Grady Memorial Hospital Corp.
Gellerstedt has helped navigate the Atlanta healthcare provider through a spike in demand resulting from the closure of other local hospitals. His work as chair has played a major part in Grady’s ongoing financial sustainability as it operates the only Level 1 trauma center in the city. For instance, he provided strategic guidance regarding a Medicaid supplemental payment program, Georgia Advancing Innovation to Deliver Equity, or GA-AIDE. Grady now receives a net $130 million annually through GA-AIDE, which has in turn allowed it to open new clinics in primary care deserts within Fulton and DeKalb counties. Gellerstedt also helped lead the charge to open Correll Pavilion, a 10-story, 600,000-square-foot facility housing clinics, three pharmacies and outpatient surgery, imaging and rehabilitation services.
