Following a national search that yielded many impressive and accomplished candidates, Patrice Cihak has joined the Einstein/Montefiore Department of Medicine as the new Faculty Practice Administrator.
In her new role, Ms. Cihak will work closely with faculty practice and clinical managers on practice issues, including customer service, revenue cycle, quality improvement projects and "operational sameness" which respects practice culture.

Most recently, she moved from Buffalo where she managed a number of urgent care centers. Prior to this role, she was the head of customer service for a healthcare company.
