Mr. Sivill will work closely with Dr. Russell Massine, Chief Governance Officer at SMGOR, the SMGOR Board of Directors and SHM leaders on short and long-term strategic objectives. Mr. Sivill will also partner with SMGOR’s Service Line Chiefs and Departmental Chairs to ensure high-quality patient-centric care is achieved in the community.

“As a result of Dr. Holloway’s bold leadership, BMC’s future is secure and patients in Central Oregon are assured convenient access to excellent health care for years to come.

“At a time when countless other independent medical groups across the country are vulnerable and contemplating abandoning the physician-owned and governed practice model, SMGOR is pioneering the way to the future,” said Dr. Massine. “We are delighted to welcome Justin Sivill to the SMGOR family and to the Bend community.”

During the same period, the medical group also doubled its production while achieving top quartile customer satisfaction and quality scores nationally through the adoption of lean principles and the advanced access system. As the Director of Quality, Justin led the redesign of the outpatient quality department and helped produce a dramatic improvement in ACO quality scores, provider engagement and substantial value-based contract savings as a result of operations redesign. He has also amassed significant achievements while employed at several other health care organizations and is an expert in redesigning value stream systems, building medical home and care teams, and creating open access in clinics and hospitals.
Justin has a bachelor’s degree in health care management from Western Illinois University and a master’s degree in Health Care Administration from Governors State University.
