Champaign, IL – CIMRO’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Tina Georgy, RN, MS, will retire in January 2023 after 37 years with the organization and having served as its CEO for 23 years.
“For over three decades, Georgy’s executive level leadership has been a cornerstone to the CIMRO enterprise.

CMS consolidated QIO contracts in 2014 and Georgy led the formation of Great Plains Quality Innovation Network (GPQIN) with a successful QIN-QIO contract serving Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. Georgy served as the CEO for Great Plains QIN from 2014 – 2020. Georgy also served as CEO of CIMRO Medical Management, Inc. from 1998 - 2000.
During her career, Georgy served on the American Health Quality Association’s (AHQA’s) Board of Directors and held various committee positions with the organization. AHQA is the national trade association representing the QIO program.
