“Not only is Mr. Wakefield a seasoned health-care executive, I believe he is the right fit for a physician-led organization like The Corvallis Clinic,” said Nick Benton, M.D., president of The Clinic’s board of directors. “He understands where we want to go and what we want to achieve as doctors in this rapidly changing health-care industry. I also expect that he and his family will be a great addition to the community, in the same tradition as our past CEOs.”
Wakefield comes to The Clinic from Physicians Anesthesia Service, Inc., in Seattle, where he has been the executive director. In this role he has overseen all operational, financial and strategic activities of this independent group of about 100 physicians and 10 certified registered nurse anesthetists.
The Corvallis Clinic, an independent, physician-led medical group, is a comprehensive multi-specialty organization, serving Benton, Linn and Lincoln counties. It offers more than 100 board-certified providers and advanced professionals in 27 specialties at nine area locations. As the fourth-largest area employer, The Clinic has 600 employees.
