Dr. 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
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.”
