Northstar Congratulates Kenneth Efird's Promotion to Company's C-Suite
HOUSTON, March 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Northstar Healthcare Inc. (TSX:NHC)
("Northstar") today announced that Dr. Kenneth Efird, D.C. has been
promoted to Northstar's Chief Business Development Officer. Dr. Efird's
relationship with the company began ten years ago when he was a leading
physician who was practicing medicine at the Palladium for Surgery in
Houston, a surgical center which Northstar purchased in 2007. Dr. Efird
joined Northstar in 2010 to oversee Northstar's clinical operations. "I
was always inspired by Northstar's founders, who consistently focused
upon aligning Northstar's programs with physicians. As the healthcare
industry continues to transform, there are a number of wonderful
opportunities for Northstar to flourish. It is my responsibility to
build our physician-led programs as a way to build Northstar's
revenues," said Dr. Efird.
"Northstar was founded in 2007 with strong revenues tied largely to its
physician relationships. Over a two-year period from 2007 to 2008,
Northstar surgical centers' revenues exceeded $75.6 million dollars",
notes Dr. Donald Kramer, Northstar's founder and current CEO. "The
management team is strongly motivated to rebuild the company's revenues
and reach its potential. Dr. Efird has deep domain knowledge and is
highly respected by his colleagues. His work will dovetail with the
work of Adam Lefton, our new Chief Marketing Officer, who is
implementing our direct to consumer programs."
