Texas Health Physicians Group Recalibrates Leadership As Executive Departs For Cleveland Clinic

A Dallas healthcare executive who’d been serving as chief medical officer at the Texas Health Physicians Group (THPG) has left the system for the Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Adam Myers had also served as chair of the Clinical Integration team pairing Arlington-based Texas Health Resources with Dallas-based UT Southwestern Medical Center (a collaboration known as Southwestern Health Resources). He’ll be the chief of population health and director of Cleveland Clinic Community Care at the high-profile, Cleveland-based medical center.

Dr. Shawn Parsley, president of THPG, is expanding his role to include chief operations officer following the move. Dr. Lynn Myers—no relation—becomes chief medical and quality officer; previously, she was the VP of quality, coding, and medical education. Parsley and Lynn Myers will also swallow up Adam Myers’ Southwestern Health Resources integration team duties.

Adam Myers was named THPG’s first CMO in 2013, coming over from the same position at Methodist Health System. THPG includes more than 830 physicians, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals across various specialties and more than 250 locations.

“Dr. Meyers was a trusted and beloved leader here at Texas Health and we’re delighted for the next chapter in his career,” Texas Health spokesperson Steve O’Brien says. “We know he’ll do a fantastic job.”
