Written by Nina Lincoff on September 10, 2014
Baptist Health South Florida is the region’s largest faith-based, not-for-profit health caresystem. Within Baptist Health are many moving parts, one of which is the relatively new Baptist Health Medical Group, a network of about 160 (and growing) physicians who come from private practices or straight out of medical training.
Bernie Fernandez, MD, has been CEO of the Medical Group for four months, and in that time he’s learned not just about his domain but many others within Baptist Health, from the telehealth initiative, which greatly reduces readmission rates and health care costs for patients, to the Baptist Health Quality Network.
