News Release: Realty Trust Group Announce Additions to Healthcare Leadership Team

(Knoxville, TN – January 2022) Healthcare real estate advisory, development, and management firm Realty Trust Group (“RTG”) recently announced the addition of healthcare veterans Holly Green and Jim Deraney.

“These additions reinforce RTG’s commitment to providing a comprehensive healthcare-focused real estate service platform to its hospital and physician practice clients, enabling them to leverage real estate as a tool to support strategic initiatives and improve the level of care they provide to patients,” said Greg Gheen, RTG Co-Founder and President. “Holly and Jim each bring significant healthcare operational experience that will further enhance RTG’s service offerings.”

Holly Green joins RTG as a Senior Associate working in the firm’s Atlanta, Georgia office. Prior to joining RTG, Holly served as the Real Estate Manager and Compliance Counsel for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (“CHOA”) where she oversaw CHOA’s real estate portfolio consisting of nearly 4,000,000 square feet of owned and leased space, including integrated with strategic planning and ambulatory network development. “As a former real estate manager for a large health care system, I understand the importance of aligning real estate with organizational values and goals,” said Holly. Having also previously worked as a health care attorney, Holly brings a unique understanding of healthcare legal and regulatory aspects such as the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and state-specific Certificate of Need (CON) filings.

Jim Deraney joins RTG as an Associate working in the firm’s Knoxville, Tennessee office. Jim most recently served as the Vice President of Operations with Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana where he oversaw multiple hospital support and ancillary departments, including real estate and regional development initiatives. He also previously worked as the Assistant Vice President of Support Services for Erlanger Health System in Chattanooga, Tennessee. “Having served in hospital leadership, I have seen how the right partnerships can add value to both the health system and the patients they serve. The depth and breadth of the services RTG provides to its clients and the way it provides them made joining RTG a very exciting opportunity,” says Jim.

“We are excited to continue to grow our team, diversify our skill sets, and deepen our healthcare expertise to best serve our clients,” said Chad Simpson, Executive Vice President with RTG. “The last two years have been challenging for healthcare providers to respond and adapt to changing needs, especially in terms of how they deliver care and the facilities required to do so. These additions help us continue to see these challenges from the provider point of view and be prepared to help our clients be successful and serve our communities.”
