Oct. 27, 2016 — Marshall Medical Center welcomes Patricia Dolphin
as its new Chief of Marshall Medical Clinics. She will be tasked with
running patient care services at Marshall’s outpatient professional clinics.
She will partner with medical directors and the Physician Advisory Council
(PAC) to ensure high quality, patient-centered delivery of care. She is
suited for the role, having compiled a 20-year career in multispecialty
physician clinic administration.
She arrives at Marshall from UCI Irvine Health, where she served as Chief
Ambulatory Officer from 2014 to this year. There, she improved efficiency
and patient experience. Her oversight reduced both the wait-times in the
clinic waiting rooms and hold-times in its call center.
“We are very lucky to find a great individual with such a strong
background,” Marshall CEO James Whipple said.
Prior to UCI, Dolphin was a vice president at HealthCare Partners, where
she grew patient membership and implemented a $55 million budget. Among
her responsibilities at Marshall will be to develop and implement financial
plans for Marshall’s clinics.
Dolphin is a Southern California native with a Bachelor’s degree
in biology from Cal State Long Beach. She earned her Master’s of
Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
Marshall Medical Center is an independent, nonprofit community healthcare
provider located in the heart of the Sierra Foothills. Marshall Medical
Center includes Marshall Hospital, a fully accredited acute care facility
with 113 beds in Placerville; several outpatient facilities in Cameron
Park, El Dorado Hills and Georgetown; and many community health and education
programs. Marshall has more than 200 boardcertified physicians and 1,500
employees providing quality healthcare services to more than 180,000 residents
