David Blom
President, CEO of OhioHealth

After 17 years as President and Chief Executive Officer, on June 30, 2019, David Blom retired from OhioHealth, having presided over a period of tremendous success and growth. The Ohio Business Roundtable congratulates him for his remarkable career, is grateful for his service to the OBRT, but more importantly, is appreciative of his pursuit of a healthier Ohio.

Dr. Steven Markovich, who had served as Executive Vice President for the previous year, assumed the role of President and CEO at the beginning of July. OBRT is thrilled to welcome him aboard.

David Blom was instrumental in the development and growth of the OhioHealth system. He previously served as President of OhioHealth’s central Ohio hospitals – Grant Medical Center, Riverside Methodist Hospital and Doctors Hospital – while also serving as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of OhioHealth. He was named President and CEO of OhioHealth in March 2002.

David leaves behind a legacy of achievement through his solid understanding of complex issues facing healthcare delivery. He is widely regarded for his expertise in leading strategic initiatives, managing and developing human capital, improving profitability, and improving quality of care and customer experience.

Ohio is a better state because of his service.



The issues and policies aggressively pursued by the OBRT are member-driven, deriving directly from the expertise and experience of its CEO members, and move the needle to strengthen Ohio’s economy.
