Most recently, Vanguard Health Systems (VHS) retained David Gomez & Associates (DG&A) once again to fill three roles, including the Executive Director of Outpatient Services, Executive Director of a Clinical Laboratory System, and Executive Director of Imaging roles.
Not only did DG&A complete the searches for the positions within 60 days, DG&A filled all three jobs with one exceptional candidate! Alexis Barbour Florczak was brought on as VHS’ Vice President, Outpatient, Employer, & Neuroscience Services, combining the Outpatient, Clinical Lab, and Imaging roles. By breaking apart the market and finding that this talent existed, DG&A was able to provide significant cost savings to VHS.

At Advocate, Alexis was accountable for 20 departments, 140 FTEs, $100 million in gross revenue, $72 million in expenses with 11 direct reports.

Her responsibilities included strategic alignment and program growth, clinical operations, patient satisfaction, association satisfaction, personnel management, new program development, physician relations and staffing with a focus on cost effectiveness and the provision of the highest quality patient care.
As the VP of Outpatient Employer & Neuroscience Services, Alexis will be responsible for planning, organizing and controlling the activities of the major outpatient clinics and centers of VHS.

Operational responsibilities will be to interpret and apply policies, budgets and long and short range plans for Radiography, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, C.T., MRI, and Radiation Therapy while upholding the hospital philosophy.
