about MEDSTAR HEALTH
MedStar Health is a not-for-profit health system dedicated to caring for people in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region, while advancing the practice of medicine through education, innovation and research. MedStar’s 30,000 associates, 6,000 affiliated physicians, 10 hospitals, ambulatory care and urgent care centers, and the MedStar Health Research Institute are recognized regionally and nationally for excellence in medical care. As the medical education and clinical partner of Georgetown University, MedStar trains more than 1,100 medical residents annually. MedStar Health’s patient-first philosophy combines care, compassion and clinical excellence with an emphasis on customer service.
Over the past decade, Clearview has assisted MedStar Health with strategic staffing support in the areas of IT, Accounting & Finance and Internal Audit. “Margins are tight in our industry and there’s not always an abundance of resources. We don’t typically have the bandwidth to take on important strategic initiatives or the proper internal team in place to support it,” mentions MedStar Health’s VP of Financial Planning & Analysis, Tricia Grubb. “We primarily engage Clearview when we are in need of a resource with a very specific skillset and specialized knowledge to help us out in an area that we were not overly familiar with,” adds Grubb.
Working with Clearview Group
Consider the fact that one MedStar Health facility operates just like a mini city. With so many moving parts (from onsite restaurants and police forces, to cleaning services and facilities management), there is a lot of day-to-day activity. “We especially appreciate Clearview’s ability to provide highly qualified resources that can plug in and get moving quickly without a ton of hand holding. Clearview does a fantastic job connecting the right resource to whatever need we have at a given time. Whether it be a high-level individual or staff resource, they have become our “easy” button for all surge staffing needs,” adds Grubb.
clearview group’s value-added services
Clearview Group understands the importance of holistic efficiency and increased control over our clients’ processes. “The team at Clearview has really stepped in for us during various times of need and through stressful situations. Between the overall strategic advice and deliverables to the breadth of talent and value-added recommendations, Clearview Group’s support has helped us to be a better organization across a broad set of areas,” notes Grubb.
