Ms. Lipson was Senior Vice President for Human Resources and Corporate Services for a greater Boston Medical Center.

In addition, Ms. Lipson managed the corporate public relations, marketing, patient relations, and support functions of the entire organization.

Ms. Lipson has twenty-seven (27) years of senior-level management experience that includes several mergers and consolidations, rightsizings and re-engineering efforts. She has managed major labor disruptions, acquired physician practices and developed new strategic business units. She has conducted employee opinion surveys, managed cultural assessments, transformed education into a corporate wide function, managed quality efforts, negotiated labor contracts and arbitrations, coordinated cultural diversity efforts and reduced cost in the worker’s compensation arena. She has extensive experience in working with physician practices with emphasis on human relations and organizational structure and culture.
