BABCPHL Board Member Feature – Mick Merritt

Michael, “Mick” Merritt is the Chief Operating Officer of Signature Services at Penn Medicine. He is responsible for Penn Medicine’s global strategy and programs, patient facilitated services, executive health, and membership programs. Mick has more than twenty years of experience in healthcare and academic medicine as a management consultant and health system leader.

Penn Medicine joined the BABCPHL when they launched their London initiative in late 2018. One of Mick’s main focuses is leading Penn Medicine’s UK expansion, fostering academic collaborations and access to Penn Medicine services across the Atlantic. Mick’s favorite BABCPHL memories include pre-covid networking opportunities, such as cocktail events and the Signature Annual Holiday Lunch. These activities offer Mick and his team valuable connections to other companies and organizations with ties throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region and the UK.

During the pandemic, Penn Medicine learned that much of their work can be done remotely. While this is a silver lining for several reasons, it is also disappointing. Mick most misses in real life social interaction and travel. He is very much looking forward to attending Penn Medicine’s bi-annual meeting in London in October 2021.
