“These are exciting times in health care,” Mr. Bizzarro noted. “I’m thrilled to be joining such an innovative and forward-thinking group of leaders who have the drive to improve the quality of care for our patients and communities.”
“We are pleased to bring Dominick’s skills and expertise to our executive leadership team as we continue to position the Network to meet the needs of our patients and communities now and into the future.” said Dr. John Rugge, Founder and CEO.
A key initial focus for Mr. Bizzarro will be developing a new population health division which will use data to best direct care management services and track the impact these services have on overall quality and outcomes for the Network.
Dr. Tucker Slingerland added, “Dominick will be an excellent addition to the team, further strengthening our talented core executive leadership group. His experience will position us well in meeting our goals of constantly improving patient experience, quality of care, and reduction of health care costs.”
