Bryan Health has announced a new leader for its joint physician and hospital organizations.
Stephen R. Russell is taking over as chief medical officer for Bryan Health Connect Physician-Hospital Organization and Accountable Care Organization.
Russell is a pediatrician with Complete Children’s Health and has been in private practice for nearly 29 years, 23 of them in Lincoln.
He has served on the board of Bryan Health Connect, which is a physician-led organization that works closely with doctors and hospitals to coordinate care, increase efficiencies and reduce costs while allowing individual doctors and facilities to maintain independence.
The chief medical officer role is part-time, and Russell will continue to see patients in his private practice.
