Snow named CEO at TeamHealth

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS MAKERS -

Who: Michael Snow, 59

Cur­rent role: Pres­i­dent of TeamHealth, one of the largest physi­cian out­sourc­ing firms in the coun­try. Effective Sept. 1, Snow also will be­come CEO of the Knoxville, Tenn.-based com­pany, re­plac­ing Greg Roth, who is re­tir­ing.

Physi­cians’ chang­ing out­looks: “Physi­cians want to be part of some­thing big­ger. I think there is a lot of con­cern among physi­cians that as they see the hos­pi­tal in­dus­try con­sol­i­dat­ing, they are go­ing to be left out and alone to ne­go­ti­ate by them­selves.”

On physi­cian re­cruit­ment and staffing: “The way you at­tract and re­tain the best physi­cians is you com­pen­sate them well. You give them op­por­tu­ni­ties for pro­fes­sional growth. You find good lo­ca­tions for where they want to live. If you do all those things, you’re go­ing to sur­round your­self with good physi­cians.”

On the Af­ford­able Care Act: “The early in­di­ca­tors are that we’re see­ing im­prove­ment in our payer mix, both in ex­pan­sion states and non­ex­pan­sion states for Med­i­caid. We saw and have seen a de­cline in self-pay pa­tients and a com­men­su­rate uptick in Med­i­caid. … We don’t at­tribute all that to ACA. But we do know we’re see­ing an uptick in vol­umes.”
