“All of the physicians in Texas Health Physicians Group pursued medicine to make a difference. Together, we can make that aspiration a reality in bigger ways than we ever could alone,” Myers said. “The opportunity to partner with other Texas Health Physicians Group members in maximizing quality for the patients entrusted to us, ensuring stewardship of the resources we have to work with, and enhancing the joy of clinical practice brings great personal gratification.”

Myers will lead quality initiatives, clinical resource utilization, use of clinical information technology, medical education and physician performance monitoring for physician practices within Texas Health Physicians Group. Serving as a critical link in the continuum of care, the physicians group furthers Texas Health’s strategy of transforming itself from a hospital-centric organization to a patient-centered, fully integrated health system.

A New York City native, Myers is board-certified in family medicine and was in private practice in Oklahoma for more than 10 years before moving to Dallas in 2010 to serve as chief medical officer and senior vice president for Methodist Health System.

Myers is an accomplished clinician, business leader, author and humanitarian and will bring great value to the physicians group’s endeavors. He has earned numerous professional credentials including the status of Fellow with the American College of Healthcare Executives, The American Institute of Healthcare Quality and the American Association of Family Physicians. He holds additional board certification in healthcare quality management and patient safety, and he’s a certified professional in healthcare risk management.
