Paul A. Hagens, Jr. is vice president, Human Resources, responsible for compensation and benefits, employee and labor relations, and recruitment services.
His recent appointment, in early 2018, follows his earlier tenure at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, when he was director of Employee and Labor Relations from 2007 to 2013. During that time he was involved in all facets of the collective bargaining process, including union negotiations, grievances, arbitrations, disciplinary process, developing and implementing hospital policies, and providing consultation on personnel matters to all levels of management.
Hagens served as the vice president of Human Resources at Doctors Community Hospital in Lanham, MD, from 2013 to 2018. He oversaw all human resources functions, as well as employee health, security, guest services, telecommunications, and central transport.
He has demonstrated success throughout his career and believes that being a servant leader is the key to building engaged, collaborative teams focused on delivering exceptional patient first health care.
Hagens has more than 20 years of human resources experience, with more than half in healthcare leadership roles. He holds a degree in Finance from Towson University and will complete his MBA in 2019.
