Phenomenal opportunity to lead a thriving and growing 100+ physician primary care network, as part of the Mount Sinai Health System. As an integral member of one of the largest and most distinguished health systems in the country, this leadership position will have a major impact on the care New Yorkers receive, spanning all 5 boroughs as well as in Westchester County and Long Island. With health care models undergoing rapid transformation, Mount Sinai has taken the lead among New York academic health systems in embracing value based care and innovative ambulatory models. We are looking for a charismatic and dynamic physician leader to support clinical excellence in our Network practices throughout the metropolitan region, driving clinical transformation, innovation, exceptional quality outcomes, and patient satisfaction across more than 30 ambulatory sites.
The ideal candidate will have significant experience (5+ years) in leading large primary care practices and a track record of success meeting or exceeding quality metrics, clinical documentation, practice efficiency, financial performance, and clinical integration goals. Given the increasing focus on population health, leadership experience in ACO or value-based contracts are preferred.
The Senior Network Medical Director for Primary Care is responsible for working with practice physicians, practice management, and Network leadership to support the development of the highest quality, integrated primary care platform. The Senior Medical Director (SMD) will promote the recruitment of high quality primary care physicians, including the alignment and acquisition of existing practices as well as the recruitment of new PCPs.
In addition, the SMD will provide necessary leadership to support practice transformation so that the each primary care site meets its targets regarding quality metrics, clinical documentation, practice efficiency, financial performance, and clinical integration. As Mount Sinai evolves its healthcare model in a changing reimbursement environment, the SMD will play a lead role in preparing the practice and its clinicians for value-based care and will utilize his/her leadership to positively impact change management. To meet these goals, the SMD is expected to serve as the senior primary care physician, provide clinical supervision for practice physicians, identify clinical needs, promote adherence to Health System protocols, processes, and best practices, support practice growth and recruitment, strategy for population health, and serve as a liaison with Network and Health System leadership. The SMD will lead by example, bringing out the best in his/her colleagues.
