OLATHE, Kansas (Jan. 2, 2020) — Docs Who Care announces the appointment of Graham Morsch as CEO, effective Jan. 5, 2020.
Gary Morsch, M.D., Docs Who Care’s founder, will step back from his role as CEO and become Chairman. He will remain involved in strategic planning, vision casting, provider recruiting and strengthening hospital partnerships.
Docs Who Care is a group of physicians and healthcare providers who partner with rural hospitals to provide clinic and emergency department staffing, hospital inpatient care and other administrative services in the Midwest.
Graham Morsch joined Docs Who Care in January 2015 as Accounting Manager and was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in September 2016. He has been instrumental in advancing the organization’s growth strategy. Since 2016, Docs Who Care provider hours have increased by 30% and administrative staff has grown with nine new hires.
As CEO, Morsch will oversee all aspects of Docs Who Care’s operations including personnel, finance, site and provider management and strategic planning.
Before Docs Who Care, Morsch worked as the communications coordinator for the office of admissions at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma, and was an accountant for Chesapeake Energy Corp in Oklahoma City.
“I’m excited and honored to step into the CEO position,” said Morsch. “I’ve had excellent role models and mentors and am ready for this new challenge.”
Morsch believes he has big shoes to fill, “but I’m confident with our incredible staff that we’ll continue living out our mission to bring exceptional healthcare to the rural hospitals we serve.”
His vision as CEO includes expanding the organization’s market reach and scope of services.
“Graham grew up with Docs Who Care, traveling with me on weekends when I covered the ERs in rural hospitals across Kansas,” said outgoing CEO Dr. Morsch. “Little did I know, 25 years ago, that Docs Who Care would someday grow into the premier medical staffing company it is today, or that my son would one day be the CEO.
“Graham has the perfect combination of people skills, organizational leadership, and financial oversight that a successful CEO requires,” Dr. Morsch continued. “More importantly, he is committed to the vision that has energized us from the beginning — bringing high-quality doctors and advanced practice providers (Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners) to rural America!”
Active in the community and professionally, Morsch has served on the board and as a trustee of the finance committee at Living Hope Church in Olathe. He is a member of Madison Place Elementary School Site Council, volunteers for Heart to Heart International and serves on the Board of Directors for DisasterDoc.
