MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures for residential, commercial, and point-of-care medicine, today announced the appointment of Delphine O’Rourke as President & Chief Executive Officer of Safe & Green Medical, the Company’s medical services subsidiary, effective July 24, 2023.
Ms. O’Rourke previously served as a Partner with the law firm Goodwin Procter LLP, an industry-leading law firm, where she focused on women’s health and health regulation issues. Ms. O’Rourke also serves as an adjunct professor at Columbia Law School where she teaches a seminar on the business of healthcare and the law. She previously served as Associate General Counsel of Ascension, one of the largest healthcare companies in the United States. Additionally, she serves on the boards of the Columbia Law School Alumni Association, e-Lovu, MDisrupt, Everviolet, Flourish Care and The Invisible Girl Project, among others. Ms. O’Rourke earned her Juris Doctorate from Columbia Law School where she was also a Harlan Stone Fiske Scholar and her Bachelor of Science, cum laude, from Georgetown University, and clerked for the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. As a thought leader in the healthcare sector, Ms. O’Rourke regularly speaks and contributes to top publications surrounding women’s health and access, best practice solutions and services for patients and consumers, as well as the evolution of the greater wellness industry.
“We are honored to welcome Delphine O’Rourke, an industry leader and health law expert, as President & CEO of our medical division,” commented Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings. “Our medical subsidiary experienced explosive growth during the pandemic and has since evolved way beyond that singular focus, with tremendous potential to change the way people envision and experience healthcare in this country. We stand firm in our belief that our point-of-care delivery model is both unparalleled in its capabilities and highly scalable, bearing more resemblance to medical technology distribution systems than traditional clinics or laboratories. Our collaboration with The Peoples Health Care and Teamsters Local 848 continues to progress, and we are on track to deliver four modules before year-end. We are excited about the prospect of establishing similar partnerships with other Teamster Locals and various unions, while also broadening our scope to encompass other communities and partners across the U.S., including rural areas with limited access to healthcare, and eventually expanding overseas. Notably, we expect to generate $5.0 million in annual gross revenue per distinct medical site. We believe Delphine’s deep understanding of healthcare systems, her experience with high-growth companies, and her expertise in ESG will serve as an indispensable asset as we look to her to lead our medical subsidiary, accelerate our commercial roll-out and develop our healthcare offerings.”
“I'm excited to become a part of the Safe & Green Holdings Corp. team and to have the opportunity to lead the Company’s medical subsidiary as its President & CEO,” noted Ms. O'Rourke. “I'm truly inspired by the Company’s progressive approach to healthcare and its adept use of modular capabilities to quickly deliver accessible, and cooperative diagnostic and wellness solutions. The vast potential for growth is evident as the health and well-being sector continues to evolve. Safe & Green's foray into this field comes at a juncture brimming with possibilities for disruption, and I look forward to applying my expertise to move this initiative forward.”
