Greenville, SC (February 28, 2017) -- Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is pleased to announce that Mark N. Simon, MD, MMM, CPE, former OBHG Vice President of Medical Affairs, has been promoted to Chief Medical Officer for OBHG nationwide. This position is the most senior of medical staff leadership roles across the OBHG organization.

A Board Certified OB/GYN, Dr. Simon first joined OBHG in 2009 as a full-time hospitalist. Over the years, as his gift for leadership became evident, Dr. Simon was transitioned through a number of regional leadership positions before being named OBHG’s Vice President of Medical Affairs in 2013.

“Dr. Simon is a proven leader with the expertise to continue the OBHG vision. This is a natural progression for him,” said Dr. Chris Swain, OBHG’s founder. “This is a physician-founded, physician-led organization, and we are honored to have Dr. Simon serve in our highest medical post.”

“It is my privilege to serve OBHG in this expanded role,” Dr. Simon said. “It is important to ensure that we are utilizing the right healthcare resources as well as benefitting from a diverse workforce. My overarching goal is to help our clinicians be more successful at the bedside so they can deliver the care they are eminently qualified to give. That will lead to better outcomes for patients, and that is what we are here for.”

Dr. Simon graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Colorado and earned his medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia, graduating Alpha Omega Alpha. He completed residency training at Exempla St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado, and has since received his master’s in medical management degree from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
