MEDNAX eastern president resigns


MEDNAX’s eastern division president, Karl Wagner, resigned from his post effective early 2017 and will serve on a consulting basis through the first half of 2017.

“After 19 years at MEDNAX, I have decided that the time is right to take a step back and determine the next opportunity to pursue. I have the highest confidence in the ability of my associates and friends at MEDNAX to execute on the strategy we have undertaken,” Wagner said.

Wagner joined MEDNAX in 1997 and previously served as the company’s treasurer, chief financial officer and president of MEDNAX’s American anesthesiology division.

“I want to thank Karl for all the contributions he has made to MEDNAX over the last 19 years,” said Roger Medel, CEO of MEDNAX.

“In the financial and operating roles he has played, Karl has been an integral part of the growth, strategic evolution, and success we have achieved as an organization.”

Separately, David Clark, president of MEDNAX’s western division, has been named president of the MEDNAX physician services, which encompasses leadership of the company’s clinical services for eastern and western divisions.

Clark joined MEDNAX in 2001 and served as chief operating officer of the company’s pediatrix division from 2008 to 2015.
