(Oct. 6, 2017) Jonathan Bauer has joined the Atlantic General Hospital and Health System as the new vice president of information systems, taking over for Andrew Fowler, who retired in June.

Bauer was born and raised in southwest Pennsylvania just outside of Pittsburgh. He spent four years at Slippery Rock University, in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor of science in physics.

His first position in healthcare was with McKesson, working with pharmaceutical-distributing robots. It was there his love for technology and healthcare grew, and he went on to obtain his MBA from Waynesburg University, in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.

After nine successful years with McKesson, Bauer accepted a position at Somerset Hospital, in Somerset, Pennsylvania, as its director of information services. Soon after joining Somerset Hospital, he was promoted to chief information officer where he successfully led the hospital through all stages of Meaningful Use and achieved Most Wired – the premier award program for healthcare IT – three consecutive years.

Bauer has continued his passion for learning by earning his CHCIO and CPHIMS certification from both the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

“Atlantic General Hospital has a history of being ahead of the pack when it comes to healthcare IT and technological innovation,” Bauer said. “I’m thrilled to be here.”

Atlantic General Hospital has been providing quality health care to the residents of Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties in Maryland and Sussex County, Delaware since May 1993.

Built by the commitment and generosity of a dedicated community, the hospital’s state-of-the-art facility in Berlin, combines old-fashioned personal attention with the latest in technology and services. It provides quality specialty care such as weight loss surgery, orthopedics, outpatient infusion and chemotherapy for individuals with cancer or blood/autoimmune disorders and a comprehensive women’s diagnostic center.

Atlantic General Health System, its network of more than 40 primary care providers and specialists, care for residents and visitors throughout the region. For more information about Atlantic General Hospital, visit www.atlanticgeneral.org.
