Adam Myers, M.D., was recently named chief medical officer of Texas Health Physicians Group. This new executive position helps fulfill THR’s goal to bring more physicians into leadership roles across the system. Along with Dr. Shawn Parsley, who was named president of Texas Health Physicians Group in October, physicians now serve in clinical leader positions at all levels of the health system.
“All of the physicians in Texas Health Physicians Group pursued medicine to make a difference,” Myers said. “Together, we can make that aspiration a reality in bigger ways than we ever could alone. The opportunity to partner with other Texas Health Physicians Group members in maximizing quality for the patients entrusted to us, ensuring stewardship of the resources we have to work with, and enhancing the joy of clinical practice brings great personal gratification.”
Myers will lead quality initiatives, clinical resource utilization, use of clinical information technology, medical education and physician performance monitoring for physician practices within Texas Health Physicians Group.
