Meadows brings two decades of progressive healthcare service company leadership to physician-led dermatology clinic network, including three Missouri-based clinics.
MINNEAPOLIS (July 10, 2019) — United Skin Specialists LLC (“USS”), a physician-led network of dermatology clinics overseen by a Medical Advisory Board, today announced the appointment of Greg Meadows as its Chief Executive Officer. Meadows will oversee the entire USS partner network of Midwestern dermatology practices and profitable growth through a focus on organic growth, clinical and operational excellence, acquisitions, and de novos.
USS clinics include Missouri-based Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery in St. Louis, West County Dermatology in Chesterfield, and Laser & Dermatologic Surgery Center in Chesterfield, which is overseen by the renown Dr. George J. Hruza.
“After meeting the team of high-quality dermatologists, nurses, PAs and NPs working in the nine USS clinics, the clinic teams and the corporate staff, I jumped at the opportunity to join,” said Meadows. “It’s not often that you get the chance to work with such top-notch professionals in market-leading medical specialty clinics.”
Also important to Meadows is the company’s proven dedication to a four-point culture philosophy of 1) creating great patient experiences and outcomes, 2) managing for superior teammate experiences, 3) promoting great referral source experiences, and 4) offering great physician and clinician experiences.
“We’ve done a lot of work in the last three years to get USS and our clinics to a point where we’re ready for our next level of growth,” said Dr. Brian Zelickson, Founder and Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board. “Not only is Greg’s background excellent, but just as important, his way of doing business and concern for the patient are the things that put him over the top for us.”
Most recently, Meadows served as CEO of Rocky Mountain Healthcare, a group of family medicine, urgent care and occupational therapy clinics in the Denver, Colorado metro area. While there, he achieved sustained profitability at greater than market rates, significantly enhanced the quality of the provider pool, improved patient satisfaction scores, opened de novo clinics, and led the organization through a transaction in early 2018.
Previously, Meadows was President and COO at Home Infusion Solutions, an independent leader in home infusion services which had 14 locations that spanned across the Northwest and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, where he delivered a profitable growth trajectory exceeding 20% YoY for core therapies and new patients as well as improving patient and referral source satisfaction. This work culminated in a transaction with a publicly traded company.
Meadows’ experience also includes CEO of Multispecialty Physician Partners, a provider of revenue cycle management, staffing, administration, marketing, IT and other practice management services to physicians’ practices in Colorado and Texas. He also served as president of CoramRx and executive VP of Coram Healthcare which under his leadership became a top-performing U.S. healthcare company with double-digit compounded annual growth rates and EBITDA increases of more than 250%. Meadows began his career at Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals in sales leadership, government affairs, pricing and contracting leadership for specialty products.
Under Meadows’ direction, USS will focus on managing and growing the business through a physician-led Medical Advisory Board, currently comprised of these esteemed Physicians: Dr. George Hruza, Laser & Dermatologic Surgery Center (Chesterfield, MO), Dr. George Nahass, Skin Care Center of Southern Illinois (Mt. Vernon and Centralia, IL), Dr. Daniel Ring, West County Dermatology (Chesterfield, MO), and Dr. Brian Zelickson, Zel Skin & Laser Specialists (Edina, Minneapolis, and Plymouth, MN).
