Here's what Lahey's PR department has to say about Dr. Grant, who replaces David M. Barrett, MD.:
At Geisinger, a group practice with 60 locations and 1200 providers, including three hospital campuses, Grant was responsible, with his administrative colleagues, for operations and budgets for 27 clinical service lines, strategic planning, and physician and administrator recruitment. He was also charged with aligning clinical operations with Geisinger Health Plan, a not-for-profit insurance company based in Danville, Pennsylvania.
Prior to joining Geisinger, Grant had a long tenure at Temple University Health System in Philadelphia, where he served in a succession of leadership roles, including chief medical officer. He was responsible for performance improvement, risk management and patient safety; integration of clinical and operational programs across multiple facilities; and clinical leadership of case and disease management.
Geisinger, which operates a network of clinics and hospitals as well as its own insurance company, has been in the news lately, with stories in The New York Times, The Financial Times and other publications about its innovations in payment and delivery of care.
