After 18 years as a successful CEO at Milton Hospital, George Geary chooses a second career in nursing to give care directly
If people turned out to be skeptical and a bit quizzical at first, well, why wouldn't they be?
After all, how many people give up, at age 56, a six-figure salary and the prestige that comes with being the CEO of a hospital to go to nursing school? And then, upon graduation, at age 59, find themselves as a rookie nurse taking orders and instruction from other nurses, after almost two decades of overseeing an entire nursing department?
Well, maybe Milton resident George Geary wasn't a typical hospital CEO. And he certainly isn't a typical new nurse right out of school. He began his 33-year career at Milton Hospital as a respiratory therapist, then spent the last 18 of those years as the hospital's CEO and president.
