David Svec Named Chief Medical Officer of ValleyCare

David Svec, MD, MBA, clinical associate professor of medicine, has just been named the Chief Medical Officer of ValleyCare. He has been involved with ValleyCare for years, and has been “instrumental in the development of the hospitalist program over the past three years” says Scott Gregerson, Stanford Health Care – ValleyCare President. Gregerson adds: “David has already contributed significantly to our organization, and I am confident his impact will be further enhanced as we work together to broaden the reach and scope of services we provide in the growing Tri-Valley area.”

In his new role, Svec will help guide the development of innovative programs, monitoring outcome measures and developing and implementing improvement plans. He will also continue to serve as a hospitalist. “As an Academic University Hospitalist at Stanford Hospital and Clinics since 2012, and Medical Director of the Hospitalist Team at ValleyCare since 2015, he had the right combination of experience to serve as our Chief Medical Officer,” Gregerson states.

Svec, who completed his residency at Stanford and received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, is excited for his new role. “I’ve enjoyed working with this community since 2015,” he says, “and I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with an exceptionally qualified team to develop new initiatives. In addition to my clinical work, my research and scholarly interests have focused on delivering high-value care through quality improvement projects. In the teaching area, we have already developed a physician assistant student rotation where students can learn with our Stanford Health Care - ValleyCare hospitalist team, and an internal medicine rotation as well. This is just the beginning.”
