Gruden, who has served as Redskins coach since 2005, will become president and chief operating officer of Griffin Hospital.
He’ll lead the company for five years and will retain a 25 percent stake.
Griffin’s hospital, founded in 2009, is the only hospital in the country that treats and cares for people with a wide range of health problems.
The hospital’s mission includes providing life-saving care and services to people with severe, chronic and terminal illnesses.
Griffin Hospital operates five medical centers in the Washington region, including one in Georgetown, which provides critical care services.
The company plans to open its first three facilities in the next two years.
Gruden said he wants Griffin to continue to innovate, with the goal of bringing its medical services to more patients.
“This is the perfect place to do it because it’s such a global hospital,” he said.
Griffin has seen a decline in the number of people with health problems as people have transitioned to cheaper, less-expensive treatments, but the hospital’s health outcomes have improved. “
That’s why I think we have to have a great, strong medical leadership team.”

In 2015, Griffin had the fifth-best death rate among all hospitals in the nation.
The Hospital Board ranked Griffin among the top 20 hospitals in terms of the number and severity of patient deaths, and Griffin’s rate of patient death per 100,000 people was also among the best.
The last time Griffin had a hospital-based death rate below 5 percent was in 2003.
In 2016, Griffin ranked as one of the best in the United States for patient survival rates.
A study released by the Hospital Board in 2016 found that the hospital was providing good care to nearly 5,000 patients annually, which was about 5 percent of all hospital care.
Griffin is in the process of reviewing a contract with the UnitedHealth Group, a leading insurance company, and a deal with the University of Colorado Health system.
Grading a hospital is difficult because of the variety of care that patients may receive, said Dr. Elizabeth L. Ritter, executive vice president of the American Medical Association’s Institute of Medicine.
“If we look at the quality of care, the fact that there are so many different types of people, the cost of care per visit, it’s very hard to grade the quality,” she said.
However, the hospital is committed to being a high-performing hospital.
The majority of patients who are admitted at Griffin receive inpatient care.
At Griffin, patients who need to be transferred to a hospital for a longer period of time, such as in intensive care, are taken directly to the hospital.
At other facilities, patients are moved to the outpatient clinic for more intensive care.
The number of inpatient admissions at Griffin fell to just 7.5 percent in 2015.
At the University Hospital of Pittsburgh, for example, in 2015, the average patient stayed in the hospital for an average of four days.
“We have more of a focus on providing high-quality care to our patients, so that they can have a longer stay, and they are more comfortable with their care,” Ritter said.
Graded Hospital Graded hospitals also have a responsibility to the community, which includes paying for certain facilities such as operating rooms, inpatient beds, and diagnostic imaging services.
But they also need to have policies in place that prevent certain practices, like overcrowding, she said, or to pay for facilities that can’t operate at their current capacity.
Rittger said the hospital has been able to develop a quality management system that helps it to identify and remove practices that aren’t helping the health of its patients.
The management system also includes a mechanism for the hospitals board of directors to decide whether to accept a hospital’s proposal to build a facility that isn’t meeting the standards, she added.
“The hospital board of trustees has to make the right decisions and they need to follow through,” Ritter said.
A majority of the hospitals patients are at Griffin, so the hospital can afford to maintain its facilities and ensure that all its services are delivered to the highest standards, Ritter added.
