Philip Roberts, MBA, began as executive administrator for the Department of Surgery in December.
Roberts serves as the lead department administrator for Surgery and oversees the administrative structure for all matters related to clinical, research, education and general administration within the department’s central operations and its 10 divisions. Reporting to the chair of Surgery, Gerard Doherty, MD, Roberts shapes the administrative structure of the department to best meet its needs and mission. He also partners closely with the department’s division chiefs and eventual associate chairs, and works in close partnership with BWH and BWPO leadership.
“I’m most excited about working with and partnering with Dr. Doherty to help execute his vision for the department around clinical operations, research and education,” Roberts said. “I’m also excited to work in a new capacity with the talented division administrators and senior administrative staff in the department.”
Roberts has worked at BWH since 2013, initially as administrative director in Surgical Oncology and then as senior director of Operations in Surgery. “Phil brings extensive experience to the position, and he has developed his talents and skill through a variety of work environments,” Doherty said.
Roberts began his career as a project manager at Meditech and Quincy Medical Center, and then became senior manager of Clinical Business Development and Clinical Planning at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He holds degrees from the University of Vermont and Boston College Carroll Graduate School of Management.
