Karen E. Doyle

Senior Vice President
University of Maryland
Medical Center

doyle-karen-photoKaren Doyle has served as the co-incident commander for the COVID-19 pandemic at the University of Maryland Medical Center since the first cases started appearing at the hospital.

She said key to the role is helping lead operational, planning, logistic and financial pathways for the institution to respond to the crisis in an organized and methodical approach. With 35 years of experience as a nurse and health care administrator in trauma and emergency services, as well as surgery, she is able to leverage those skills for the organization during this crisis.

“My life’s work as a nurse and health care administrator is truly my vocation, it is what I love, and who I am,” Doyle said.

“I am filled with humility receiving this award. I accept on behalf of my co-incident commanders, Dr. Gregory Schrank and Gonzalo Solis and on behalf of every front line health care worker fighting the good cause. All of our frontline employees are the true heroes in this fight and it is my privilege to work on behalf of them. My role is taking care of the people that care for the people.”
