David Joos Named New VP of Access Management and Transitions of Care for KentuckyOne Health

Louisville, KY (October 17, 2014) --- David Joos, M.B.A., has been named the new vice president of access management and transitions of care for KentuckyOne Health. Joos has more than 20 years of diverse health care administration experience, with demonstrated accomplishments across complex health care delivery systems.

Most recently Joos served as director of patient access and demand management for Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a nonprofit health system with more than 21,000 employees, 11 hospitals, a medical group with more than 1,000 providers, and a health plan with 575,000 members. In that role he led the teams responsible for the design, implementation, and coordination of a system-level approach to the way patients and providers accessed services and navigated the continuum of care.

In his new role, Joos will work in collaboration with all stakeholders to lead the development and implementation of a


strategic and operational plan aimed at ensuring access and the “right site of care” for all patients throughout the KentuckyOne system. He will be responsible for transfer center operations; patient placement services; care management and transition of care processes; hospital-based services; physician partnerships; and utilization management. The Columbus, Ohio, native will serve as the KentuckyOne liaison/coordinator for all call centers and central scheduling operations. He will begin his new job responsibilities on Oct. 31.

“I believe in the vision of KentuckyOne,” he said. “I’m eager to join in order to contribute to the enhancement of programs and services. I want to help ensure that KentuckyOne has highly coordinated, time-sensitive care.”

Joos will report to KentuckyOne Health COO Lisa Shannon, M.B.A.

“David’s expertise and leadership will be extremely valuable,” Shannon said. “His rich experience with process improvement and a patient-centered approach, while working in partnership with providers, makes him uniquely qualified to serve our organization.”

Joos and his wife, Amy, have three children.
