Graymark Appoints Jamie Hopping as Chairman of the Board


Hopping comes to Graymark as a 30-year health services veteran, serving in a variety of upper-level operational roles with major health care facility providers. Her extensive career includes serving as the western group president for HCA Holdings, where she was responsible for the finance and operations of 60 hospitals across 13 states and generating $4 billion in annual revenue. She was also previously the executive vice president and chief operating officer of Ardent Health Services, a $1 billion acute care hospital and specialty care facility employing more than 400 physicians.


"Jamie is an exceptional executive who brings valuable expertise in the health services field and a proven track record in driving operational success and revenue growth for hospital facilities across the U.S.," said Nelson. "Her business and operational acumen, in addition to her breadth of contacts in the health services industry, will prove invaluable as we continue to build market acceptance for our comprehensive model of diagnosing and treating OSA in the hospital setting."


Hopping commented: "For the some 50 million Americans suffering from sleep disorders, Graymark offers a unique and proven platform to help people in communities of all sizes, from urban to rural, who need and deserve our state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatments. The company's momentum in the hospital setting has accelerated over recent quarters, and this makes me both proud and excited to join the company at this pivotal stage of its development." 


Graymark operates a growing number of sleep laboratories nationwide, comprised of 24 standalone or IDTF facilities in large communities and 74 hospital, provider or rural outreach sites. While the care environments may vary based on community need, Graymark ensures that the quality and comprehensiveness of the services provided remain consistently at the highest standard.
