Grand River Medical Group (GRMG) is an independent, physician-owned practice with about 360 employees, including more than 55 physicians and advanced practice professionals. GRMG was founded in 2016 when three clinics, formerly known as Dubuque Family Practice, Dubuque Internal Medicine, and Dubuque Pediatrics, merged to continue providing high-quality healthcare and to improve coordination of healthcare in the community. The clinic has six locations throughout Dubuque, as well as three dialysis units and two support service locations. On average, GRMG sees about 4,000 new patients annually in clinic locations. Since its inception in 2017, the group has seen more than 10,000 patients in the acute clinic, which was added after the merger to assist in providing patients with a cost-effective alternative to visiting an urgent care or emergency room for lower acuity needs.
Grand River Medical Group has 34 shareholders and a 13-member Board of Directors. The executive committee, elected by the Board of Directors, consists of five members. Providing ancillary services remains important to the shareholders as a way to continue to provide coordinated care to patients. In 2018, GRMG completed just over 490,000 lab tests and 21,000 radiology tests, including mammography (both 2-D and 3-D), CT, X-ray, DEXA, Ultrasound, Stress Echoes and Carotids. The group has experienced a stable payer mix over the years. Medicare makes up about 53 percent, Medicaid another 7 percent and the three largest commercial payers comprise more than 32 percent of patients seen at GRMC.
Grand River Medical Group is seeking a Chief Executive Officer, who will be responsible for the management, direction, and coordination of all Practice operations and related activities (except those involving the practice of medicine) for the purpose of attaining the goals and objectives set forth by the Shareholders. The CEO will conduct the affairs of the Practice within the limits of his/her authority.
Bachelor’s degree in business administration, healthcare administration, or accounting, or equivalent, is required. Master’s degree in health/business administration is preferred.
