Dr. Carl Vartian Joins HCA Gulf Coast Division As Chief Medical Information Officer

HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HCA Gulf Coast Division Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Angela A. Shippy, announced that Dr. Carl Vartian has been named the Division's Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO).  In this role, Dr. Vartian will be integral in the clinical information technology initiatives for the Gulf Coast Division and a link between its physicians and the technology solutions it deploys. Dr. Vartian will combine his new position with his current duties as Chief Medical Officer (CMO) at Bayshore Medical Center (BMC) and continue to integrate his expansive knowledge of and expertise in infectious disease.

"I am looking forward to working with the talented leadership at HCA Gulf Coast Division in my new role," Dr. Vartian said. "It's my desire to draw from my experience to help further the advancement of practice initiatives and strategic goals for informatics, quality and infection control."

"Dr. Vartian is a leader whose education and extensive experience make him uniquely qualified for this role and is a true asset to our team," said Dr. Shippy. "He is an accomplished physician who we expect will make an immediate contribution to our pursuit of delivering quality healthcare."

After twenty-four years of experience in the private practice of infectious disease in Houston, Dr. Vartian joined West Houston Medical Center and Bayshore Medical Center in 2008 as Vice-President of Medical Affairs (VPMA). He was involved in multiple aspects of hospital activities including infection control, quality, medical staff affairs, risk management and utilization review. This transition means he will no longer serve as the VPMA of West Houston, but he will continue to interact with the facility as a function of his new responsibilities. 

Dr. Vartian is a New York native who graduated from SUNY-Downstate Medical School in Brooklyn, New York and completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital and his Infectious Disease Fellowship at the University Hospitals of Cleveland.  He is completing a Masters Degree in Health Informatics at the University Of Texas School Of Biomedical Informatics in Houston.

Dr. Vartian will begin his new responsibilities immediately.
