Memphis, TN, August 18, 2020 – Keystone Healthcare Partners (Keystone Healthcare), a leading provider of Emergency Medicine, Hospital Medicine, and Telehealth physician management services and staffing solutions for hospitals, today announced a significant talent realignment and acquisition strategy that aims to futureproof the Company for continued growth and success both during the COVID-19 pandemic and in a post COVID-19 world.
The internal realignments and talent acquisitions, made possible by Keystone Healthcare’s financial health, client stability, technological strengths, and competitive advantages, will impact several teams at Keystone Healthcare, including Revenue Cycle, Corporate, Medical Leadership, Operations Management, Business Development, and Client Services. Four internal promotions include Victoria Shoemaker, Chief Revenue Cycle Officer, who will assume overall responsibility for the operation of KMBS and continue to oversee the Revenue Cycle team; Don Booth, Executive Vice President of Client Services, Software Solutions, & Innovation, who will support Keystone Healthcare’s Operations team, Medical Leadership team, Telehealth team, and Documentation Education team, by identifying and implementing technological solutions that support the execution of Keystone Healthcare’s strategic objectives. Nicole Ehnle, Software Solutions Administrator and Operations Associate, who will be responsible for assisting in the research, evaluation, implementation, and adoption of new technologies that support the advancement of all Operations teams; and Randy Wilson, Chief Financial Officer, who, in his expanded role as Chief Financial Officer, will have direct oversight of Keystone Healthcare’s Business Development team.
New additions to Keystone Healthcare include Chelsea Voors, Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, who will assist the Chief Executive Officer and Executive team with the development, communication, and execution of corporate strategic initiatives. Chelsea will also be responsible for creating demand for Keystone Healthcare’s hospital-based services by developing strategic relationships with partners and potential clients as well as assisting in the development of a strong sales pipeline. Another new hire, Jeff Curtis, Vice President of Business Development, will be responsible for increasing revenue, meeting specific growth and profitability targets, and achieving Keystone Healthcare’s growth objectives.
“Since February, Keystone Healthcare and our partner hospitals have faced the most challenging time our profession has known, and I am incredibly proud of, and humbled by, the bravery, courage, and selflessness our team and hospitals partners have demonstrated,” said Andrew Portelli, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Keystone Healthcare. “This talent realignment and acquisition strategy will further fortify our Company as we support our partner hospitals nationwide with the clinical and administrative support, telehealth technologies, and business solutions they need to not just weather the trials ahead, but to thrive as organizations dedicated to high-quality patient care and outcomes.”
This initiative follows Keystone Healthcare’s recent expansion into Texas and addition of new services including ICU/CCU and APP Coverage. Keystone Healthcare’s expansion was supported by two new clinical hires, including Vice President of Telehealth, Patient Access, & Connected Care, Melissa King, DNP, FNP-BC, ENP-BC, and its first-ever Director of Emergency Medical Services, Darryl Wenner, DO. That expansion dovetails with Keystone Healthcare’s new talent realignment and acquisition strategy, knowing that demand for services, including Emergency Medicine, Hospital Medicine, and Telehealth & Connected Care, which features virtual case management, tele-triage, and ED2Home, will increase throughout the second-half of 2020 and beyond as COVID-19 continues to holistically impact clinical and operational capacity, patient volumes, and healthcare delivery methods.
