Dr. Scott Rissmiller
Executive vice president and chief physician executive,
Rissmiller has a key leadership role in combining clinical programs as Atrium, Wake Forest Baptist Health and Wake Forest School of Medicine join forces, which was announced in October 2020. Additionally, he oversaw formation of program aimed at providing care to nearly 70,000 patients who lost access to OB/GYN services when a competing medical group closed. And after receiving the Quest for Quality Award from the American Hospital Association in 2019, Atrium continued to see sizable improvements in safety and quality, including 3,700 avoided readmissions, 978 avoided infections and 4,000 avoided deaths. He is part of a leadership team that negotiated an innovative value-based payment model with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. During the pandemic, he helped oversee the launch of a hospital-at-home program.
