AnMed Health promotes medical group leaders

September 7, 2021

AnMed Health is pleased to announce new titles for several of its medical group leaders to better reflect their growing scope of responsibility and strategic influence.

Dr. Brad Mock, who has served as AnMed Health’s chief medical officer since 2020, will assume the title of chief physician executive. The title reflects an expanded purview from hospital-focused quality and safety initiatives to those across the entire health system. Lynn Gregory and Kim Burden will be elevated to vice president and assistant vice president of the medical group, respectively. Dr. Melody Franks will advance from medical director to chief medical officer of the medical group. In addition, she will continue to serve as chief medical officer of Piedmont Health Partners, a clinicallyintegrated network of physicians and healthcare providers that includes AnMed Health.

“As care continues to evolve and grow beyond the walls of the hospital, the medical group will play an increasingly significant role in AnMed Health’s ability to meet the needs of those we serve,” said AnMed Health CEO William Kenley. “I look forward to continuing to work with these proven leaders to reach exceptional new heights in health care.”

AnMed Health’s employed medical group has grown to more than 220 providers in 60 practices across four counties. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the medical group has significantly expanded telehealth offerings for primary care and sustained ongoing community vaccination clinics.
