Mark Hertling – Orlando, Florida


Lieutenant General (retired) Mark Hertling retired from the US Army in January 2013, and is now leading programs for Global Partnering, Leadership Development and Health Performance Strategies at the innovative Florida Hospital in Orlando.

At the time of his retirement, Hertling was Commanding General of US Army Europe. It was during that period he developed a unique engagement plan to help train and develop leaders in the armies of 38 different nations, building forces that would contribute effectively to combat as part of a functioning alliance in Iraq and Afghanistan. During his military career, LTG Hertling was considered a strategic leader, expert tactician, gifted operator, and soldier-focused commander. He led and commanded training organizations at the Army’s National Training Center (Ft Irwin, California) and the Joint Multi-National Training Center in Grafenwoehr, Germany). In 2009-11, Hertling was the first Commander of Initial Military Training for the US Army; during that period, he revamped the skills new soldiers learn in basic training, established a program to better train soldiers on the Army’s values, and he established the “Soldier-Athlete” initiative to address the fitness and nutritional standards of soldiers.

Since joining Florida Hospital in 2013, Mark has established a Global Partnering initiative, driving a cultural approach to health and well-being for employees and the community. He also established a Physician Leader Development Course and redesigned the organization’s Leadership Development program for all employees. This interprofessional approach to healthcare leadership has gained national recognition as a unique program for physicians and healthcare providers.
