As a co-founder and chairman of TeamHealth, Dr. Lynn Massingale extends his passion of transforming patient care to other clinicians and leaders throughout the company and industry. TeamHealth was recognized by Forbes magazine in 2014 as one of “America’s 100 Most Trustworthy Companies,” by Fortune Magazine in 2015, 2016 and 2017 as one of “The World’s Most Admired Companies,” and in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.” It is easy to see why Dr. Massingale takes pride in this organization.
“Our culture is grounded on, first and foremost, the patient care. And I don’t care how smart you are or anything else, if you can’t get that right, then the game’s over. Second thing is, I think there’s a pretty high dose of humility here. We don’t think we have anything figured out and we’re trying to improve it every day, and there’s not a lot of big egos at TeamHealth and I think that’s a core part of who we are.”
TeamHealth focuses on five core mantras: quality and patient safety, clinician engagement and retention, metrics-driven operational excellence, contract retention, and growth. Because of those five mantras, TeamHealth produces both strong leaders and team members, and has seen success across the country.
