Medicus Healthcare Solutions has promoted former chief operating officer Cristina Muise, MBA, PhD, to president of the healthcare staffing and consulting company. Prior to joining Medicus in 2008, Muise operated a consulting practice, served in faculty positions at Stonehill College and Merrimack College, and served for 12 years as CFO and COO at GlobalWare Solutions.
“Cristina has been instrumental in taking a strategic vision and executing on that vision to strengthen our position as an industry leader,” said Joe Matarese, Medicus founder and CEO. “With a proven track record for successfully leading large-scale initiatives and driving innovation, she is well suited to lead our development efforts as we continue our mission into the future.”
Soon after joining Medicus, Muise spearheaded efforts to secure financing and recapitalize the organization, during the height of the financial crisis, which helped the company grow in revenue from $32 million in 2009 to $120 million in 2015. She has played an integral role in distinguishing Medicus in the supplemental and permanent healthcare staffing and consulting field by offering more complete solutions to healthcare organizations facing physician and advanced provider shortages and other service line challenges.
Through Muise’s foresight and planning, Medicus was able to construct a new facility in Windham and expand the building complex within the past three years. With the additional space, Medicus has more than doubled its employee count in New Hampshire. Muise also has overseen the expansion of Medicus operations to offices in Denver, Colorado, and Houston, Texas, to more completely serve the healthcare staffing needs of medical groups and facilities around the U.S.
“It is exciting to lead an organization that has so much growth ahead of it fueled by a passion to bring a deep value proposition to our clients beyond our staffing services. We are well poised to continue to build on our service offering and presence, all while providing wonderful career opportunities for our people.”
A former CPA, Muise has authored several publications on the benefits of companies acting in a socially responsible manner to improve the wellbeing of their communities, customers and employees.
