Cenegenics® Medical Institute forms new Practice Development Executive Team in sync with projected industry growth.
(PRWEB) April 14, 2010 -- Cenegenics® Medical Institute, global age management medicine leader, formed a new Practice Development Executive Team in response to the rising physician demand for a proactive medical approach and opportunities outside the insurance world—a demand birthed from the recent health reform legislation. Cenegenics is revving up for projected industry growth over the next four years to support an estimated 100 physician partners by 2013.
Cenegenics’ strategy includes a flurry of new centers, new programs and this new executive team, consisting of three vice presidents of practice development to recruit, train and deliver ongoing support for physician partners: Dr. Tim Patel, Dr. Michael Resnick and Chris Matlock.
Patel will focus on physician training, the Practice Development Residency program and the 12-month Partner Track business model.
“Now is the right time to recruit good physicians and give them an opportunity to partner with Cenegenics. We’ve seen controlled growth despite market conditions. And physicians are ready—an increasing number are inquiring about our program and practice, especially with the further decline of healthcare and quality of health nationwide due to lifestyle issues, “ Patel said.
Resnick, with 20 years of radio/TV experience as well as five years experience with Cenegenics, will be focusing on physician recruitment and media relations.
“The Practice Development team will be the heart of our growth over the next few years. We currently have 23 physicians nationwide doing practice development, but will have a projected 60 within the next three years. And as we continue to expand our Practice Development physician base, our patient base will grow accordingly since these doctors will spend time educating potential patients on how Cenegenics can change their lives and impact their well-being and lengthened health span,” Resnick said.
Matlock has worked with Cenegenics as consultant on practice development and sales since 2007. He will be handling business management and operations to ensure compliance with financial goals.
“I’ve been constantly amazed at the capacity of this organization to grow against head winds. I’m looking forward to providing an additional resource at the executive level and quite excited about working with the life force of our organization, the staff team, both corporately and across the country,” Matlock said.
