Gordon is married to a professor emeritus at the University of Cincinnati, and they have twins in college. Partly to make sure he experiences the change about which he consults and partly due to a love of music, Gordon is currently learning to play the violin.

“Gordon focuses on developing the physician leadership required to deal effectively with an emerging healthcare environment that demands agile organizations.”
