Dr. Attila Barabas starts work as CMO

Dr. Attila BarabasDr. Attila Barabas began his new role as Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for Campbell County Medical Group (CCMG) on July 1, 2018 in Gillette, Wyoming.

Most hospitals, even smaller health care systems like Campbell County Health, now have a CMO position in place to assist employed doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in developing standards of care and strategic direction for clinical quality in their clinics. Other important aspects of the position include facilitating positive communication between employed and independent medical staff, business enhancement, and employed provider collaboration.

The CMO will work closely with administrative staff, employed medical staff and the Physician Leadership Council to maintain the high quality of medical care in CCMG and promote medical staff participation in furthering the mission of CCH.

Dr. Barabas serves as member of the CCH Executive Team, and will report directly to CEO Andy Fitzgerald for CCMG operational performance, strategy, governance and professional development.

“We’ve been working on developing this position for some time,” said CEO Andy Fitzgerald. “The employed providers have asked for this because a medical colleague can understand the issues and point of view in a way that an administrative person just can’t. They don’t have the shared clinical and professional experience.”

Dr. Barabas will continue his Urology practice part-time, with support from nurse practitioner Lori McInerney, APRN.

“I am extremely pleased to have Dr. Barabas on board as our CMO,” said Bill Stangl, Vice President of Physician Services. I look forward to working with him as part of the Dyad Leadership model for CCMG. The CMO is the bridge between medicine and management.”
