Physician David Bordo has been named vice president for Medical Affairs at Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center, 5645 W. Addison St., Chicago. In this newly created role, Dr. Bordo will join the hospital executive team as a leader of clinical initiatives aimed at enhancing quality and patient safety.
“We are pleased to have Dr. Bordo join us in this leadership role as he brings a strong medical background centered in optimal systems of care for patient safety and access,” said Martin Judd, executive vice president and chief executive officer, Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center.
Among his major responsibilities, Bordo will provide leadership to deliver high quality, cost-effective patient care, working as a facilitator between administration and the medical staff. He will champion quality efforts and drive consistency of care throughout the organization, serving as a key leader in evidenced-based care, documentation improvement, compliance and accreditation.
Bordo will serve as a voice for the medical staff at the senior management level and will champion further collaboration between administration and the medical staff. He will partner with administration and system leadership to grow the medical staff and develop strategies to enhance physician alignment and integration.
Bordo comes highly qualified for the position as a board-certified emergency medicine physician and Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians with strong management and high clinical credibility. During his four-year tenure as medical director of the hospital’s emergency department, the department has grown in volume nearly 4 percent each year for the past four years. In 2010, he led the redesign that resulted in a premier ‘no wait’ emergency department that provides rapid service and continues to yield high quality care.
Bordo launched the start-up and management of the hospital’s hospitalist group, which he not only integrated into the medical staff, but also recently transitioned into the Resurrection Medical Group. This major achievement augments clinical care delivery by supporting primary care providers and assuring round-the-clock medical care to patients.
