WACO, TX — The president of Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center has announced his retirement.

Glenn Robinson will be retiring after more than 12 years as Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center's president.

Robinson has been the President of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Hillcrest since September 2007. Glenn came to Hillcrest from Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he served as CEO of Mary Black Health System. Prior to that, he held CEO positions at a number of other hospitals in Alabama, Oregon and Texas.

He is a native of Georgia and a graduate of the University of Alabama. He completed his graduate school training at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas with a Master of Science in Health Care Administration.

Robinson released the following statement on his retirement:

It is with mixed emotions I announce that I have decided to retire. This decision did not come quickly or easily. However, I can tell you I have a total peace in my heart about this, and I must admit I am excited about this next season in my life.

It is hard to believe that it was more than 12 years ago the Hillcrest Health System Board of Directors asked Rhonda and me to move to Waco to accept the role as President and CEO. Since that time, there have been so many moments that made me very proud of each and every member of our team and the amazing way they have cared for our community. I am so grateful for each of our frontline heroes and the amazing support staff heroes, especially as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. It is their Sacred Work that makes Baylor Scott & White – Hillcrest a very special place.

You may be asking what is next for Rhonda and me; the answer is pretty easy. For the next year, you will find us hitting the trail spending time with grandchildren in Charleston, SC; Katy, TX; and here in Waco. Every step of the way, we will continue to carry our Hillcrest family and our Waco community with us in our hearts and in our prayers.

Thank you for allowing me to serve this community over these past 12 years.

Robinson is an active member of the Waco community.

He is a Board member and Past-Chair of the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce and serves on a number of boards and advisory councils centered on the growth of our community, including the Prosper Waco Board of Directors. In addition, he contributes to the advancement of education through his involvement with Waco ISD and Baylor University.
