January 26, 2021 – Charlotte, NC-based HARTZ Search has been enlisted to find a new chief executive officer for the Mayfield Clinic in Cincinnati. This follows the resignation of Mark Farrington, who left Mayfield for a professional opportunity in New Jersey. Michael Radomski is serving as interim CEO while an established a search committee will help identify a permanent CEO.
The CEO is the senior management person responsible for the effective and efficient operational and administrative management of Mayfield Brain and Spine. He or she will work closely with the physician shareholders to develop and implement long- and short-term strategies to ensure continued growth. According to HARTZ Search, the CEO will be able to interact with an involved and committed group of surgeon shareholders in shaping the direction and growth of Mayfield Brain and Spine.
Given the changing nature of healthcare reimbursement and attendant competitive challenges, the CEO will have a unique opportunity to help chart and implement creative responses to expand the scope, size and influence of Mayfield Brain and Spine.
The Mayfield Clinic wants candidates with a minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible senior leadership in a large, successful surgical group practice, said HARTZ Search. The organization will also consider those with management and growth experience at a large, related hospital clinical service line and/or senior-level hospital leadership experience managing or interacting and negotiating with large physician group practices. Prospects should have a demonstrated understanding of the healthcare industry, to include operations, reimbursement, competitive forces, and implications of proposed changes. In addition, he or she should have a track record of productive and mutually beneficial working relationships with surgeons, nurses, and other ancillary clinical service providers. A successful history of progressive leadership, mentoring and team building is also a plus.
The Mayfield Clinic has treated hundreds of thousands of patients since its establishment in 1937 by Dr. Frank H. Mayfield. The clinic’s 19 neurosurgeons and 30 affiliated physicians, nurses, and clinical staff treat about 20,000 patients each year from more than 35 states and 13 countries and perform over 6,000 surgical cases and 10,000 interventional procedures annually. Mayfield Clinic has five practice locations throughout the metropolitan service area. Affiliated clinical business ventures include the Mayfield Brain & Spine, Mayfield Spine Surgery Center, Mayfield Physical Therapy, Mayfield Education & Research Foundation, and the Mayfield Surgical Innovation Center.
