Loyola names Mercy’s David Maine as Business Leader of the Year

Loyola University Maryland's Sellinger School of Business and Management has named David N. Maine, MD, president and CEO of Mercy Health Services, as the 2024 Business Leader of the Year. The award honors business leaders who embody Loyola's Jesuit commitment to community and service in the leadership of their organization.

Maine will be honored at Loyola's annual Business Leader of the Year event on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore. For more information, visit the Business Leader of the Year website.

“Dr. Maine brings a remarkable range of skills and talents, including his deep clinical expertise and personal commitment to patients, as well as his service-oriented skills as a business leader,” said Mary Ann Scully, MBA '79, dean of Loyola's Sellinger School. “These skills make him an exceptionally influential leader in the city of Baltimore, providing direction for a major medical institution, addressing the region's health needs, and designing transformative collaborations. Loyola is proud to name Dr. Maine as its 2024 Business Leader of the Year.”

Maine is a leader in Mercy Health Services, an independent, mission-driven health system serving the greater Baltimore area, and Mercy Medical Center, a general acute care teaching hospital founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1874. The hospital is partnering with Loyola to launch the university's new Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program, which was recently approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing.

“As a Jesuit, Catholic institution, we at Loyola regularly ask how we can help the Baltimore community. In this regard, we are very much aligned with the important, compassionate work of Mercy Health Services,” said Terrence M. Sawyer, JD, president of Loyola. “I admire Dr. Maine's tireless work leading the health care system through challenges and look forward to honoring him as Business Leader of the Year this fall.”

Coinciding with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020, Maine became the first physician to lead the hospital in its 150-year history. Under his leadership, Mercy met the challenges of the pandemic, ensuring both the continuity of essential services to the community and its commitment to safety and patient care.

Maine has driven the health system's growth and transformation by introducing new clinical programs and expanding Mercy's network of primary and specialty care providers and locations throughout the Baltimore region. The health system has invested in its centers of excellence and enhanced its maternity health and preventive care programs. Under Maine's leadership, Mercy has earned national recognition, including being named one of America's 50 Best Hospitals for Surgical Care by Healthgrades and one of America's Most Trusted Companies by Newsweek for the second year in a row.

Prior to his appointment, Maine served as executive vice president at Mercy Health Services, where he was responsible for operations and oversaw Mercy Medical Center, specialty and primary care physician networks, and Mercy's affiliates. He also served as executive vice president of Mercy's Physician Enterprise, focusing on physician network growth. His other roles at Mercy included president of medical staff and senior vice president of clinical transformation, where he led Mercy's efforts to expand outpatient surgical services. Maine has also served as medical director of Mercy's Center for Interventional Pain Medicine since 2007.

Maine chairs the Maryland Hospital Association's Council on Clinical & Quality Issues and is a member of the association's Board of Trustees. Maine also serves on the board of the Greater Baltimore Committee. He has been recognized as a Grassroots Champion by the American Hospital Association and named one of Maryland's healthcare leaders by The Daily Record. He has been named Baltimore Magazine's “Top Doctor” each year.

Maine attended the University of Rochester School of Arts and Science and the University of Rochester School of Medicine, graduating with honors in 2002. He completed his residency in anesthesiology and fellowship in interventional pain medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital and is board certified in anesthesiology and pain medicine. He earned his MBA from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
