Vladimir Radivojevic, former vice president and chief operating officer of AdventHealth Bolingbrook and GlenOaks, will serve as president and CEO of AdventHealth GlenOaks effective July 17.
Radivojevic succeeds Bruce Christian, who announced his retirement earlier this year. Christian served as CEO for AdventHealth GlenOaks since 2011 and will continue in his role as president and CEO of AdventHealth Bolingbrook until he retires Oct. 3, 2022. Christian will assist Radivojevic throughout the transition while a national search for his successor at AdventHealth Bolingbrook is underway.
Radivojevic joined AdventHealth in 2017 as vice president and chief operating officer for AdventHealth Bolingbrook and GlenOaks, where he was responsible for leadership and direction of hospital operations, budget performance and multiple service lines. He has achieved notable success, leading efforts that have produced quality and clinical improvements as well as financial gains at both hospitals. In 2019, The Leapfrog Group named both hospitals as Top General Hospitals nationally for their achievements in patient safety and quality.
"We’re very pleased to have Vladimir serve in this new capacity at our GlenOaks facility,” said Thor Thordarson, president and CEO for the Great Lakes Region of AdventHealth. “He has notable experience in driving financial and operational performance, and building strong relationships with team members, providers and residents in this community.”
Radivojevic came to AdventHealth from Goshen Health in Indiana, where he served in various leadership roles, including vice president of hospital operations; assistant vice president and later vice president of surgery, heart and vascular services; and vice president of surgery and gastrointestinal services.
Radivojevic has a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, a Master of Science in physical therapy as well as a Bachelor of Science in anatomy and physiology from Andrews University. He is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a member of its local independent chapter, the Chicago Healthcare Executive Forum.
"I’m honored to be asked to lead the incredible team at AdventHealth GlenOaks,” Radivojevic said. “These past five years have been a blessing for my family and me, and I look forward to building on our accomplishments as we continue to extend the healing ministry of Christ.”
