Prior to that, Robinson was chief operating officer at Worcester State Hospital, where he directed a re-configuration of patient wards and program areas, reduced overtime expenses and created a smoke-free hospital environment. Prior to his past experience as the chief operating officer of Pembroke Hospital, Robinson was the Psychiatric Service administrator at Central Hospital in Somerville.
