MDI Hospital has recently hired Sheila Pierson-Roy as its new Director of Physician Practices. In her new role, Pierson-Roy will administer the Hospital’s primary care and specialty practices.
Pierson-Roy brings to her new position over twenty years experience in health care practice administration. After receiving a BS in Management, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and a Masters in Business Administration from Franklin Pierce University, she served as Administrator for Garrison Medical Professional Association in Dover, New Hampshire from 1986 to 1995.
Between 1993 and 2001 Pierson-Roy was the Administrator for Exeter Pediatric Associates in Exeter, New Hampshire, the Practice Administrator for Contemporary Management Associates in Concord, New Hampshire, and the Administrator for Partners for Women’s Health in Exeter, New Hampshire.
From 2001 to 2004, Pierson-Roy served as Administrator for the Center for Women’s Health in Sanford, Maine and Rochester, New Hampshire. Between 2004 and 2008 she was the Director of Goodall Health Partners, a hospital-based physician practice in Sanford.
Prior to joining MDI Hospital, Pierson-Roy formed her own physician practice consulting and management service, Sheila Pierson-Roy Consulting, LLC.
Her decision to join MDI Hospital was prompted by a combined interest in the MDI region and the hospital that serves it. “My husband and I have vacationed here for years and just love it,” said Pierson-Roy. “I’m very drawn to the natural beauty of the area. I’ve always felt that the Island and I were compatible.”
“I’m also very impressed with MDI Hospital,” she said. “I like the small size of the hospital, its reputation for outstanding quality, and its dedication to the health and wellbeing of residents and visitors in the MDI region.”
Her goal, said Pierson-Roy, is to standardize administrative processes in the Hospital’s practices to eliminate duplication of effort, improve efficiency, and foster consistency in documentation.
At the same time, she emphasizes that she will support the unique aspects of each practice. “In part, people choose a practice or provider because they are comfortable with the staff and the feel of the place” she said. “I don’t take a cookie cutter approach to the management of physician practices. It’s important to keep the unique feel and culture of each practice.”
