Dr. David Kiley did not take the decision to become a full-time administrator lightly.
“I truly am not one of the physicians who has a lot of complaints about health care and what we go through as physicians,” Kiley said. “I loved my career. I loved practicing medicine. But I knew it was the time for me to move on and expand my career.”
Kiley, 56, was named the senior vice president and physician executive for Community Health Network’s North Region in early July.
“Dr. Kiley exhibits great leadership and understanding of how to integrate the needs of providers with the needs of the ever-changing healthcare landscape,” stated Tim Hobbs, M.D., chief physician executive for Community Health Network. “He is a credible clinician, who has a track record of placing the needs of patients first and delivering exceptional care.”
Kiley, a Fishers resident for 23 years, has served in a variety of physician leadership roles and on a number of network boards. Prior to the new position, Kiley served as the vice president of clinical performance for the North Region and a specialty care physician executive for Community Physician Network for nearly two years.
“This role is an extension of what I’ve been doing but it’s expanding the role fairly dramatically,” Kiley said.
Kiley received his undergraduate degree in business administration from Arizona State. Then went to medical school at Indiana University in Indianapolis.
“I always knew I wanted to have some sort of role in administration going back to when I got my undergraduate degree in business,” Kiley said. “When I was in obstetrics it was hard to serve much more time in it.”
Kiley will partner with the region’s president and work with employed and non-employed providers across all network product lines and sites of care in the North Region.
