“Kris has over a decade of leadership experience in healthcare and has shown exceptional capability in managing large multi-specialty practices, as well as leading strategic initiatives for growth, innovation, and performance improvement,” Dr. Clint Merritt, Chief Physician Executive/Chief Medical Officer of Augusta Health, said. “His dedication to patient care and pursuit of excellence aligns well with our core values.”

“I am excited to join Augusta Health and the Augusta Medical Group family,” Doan said. “I was attracted to the organization because of the impressive provider presence within the high-functioning medical group and the intentional impact on surrounding communities. I look forward to the continued progress AMG will make towards strengthening the health and well-being of all people in the community.”
