In her new role, James will oversee Einstein’s strategic planning and business development functions, focusing on identifying and prioritizing short- and long-term growth opportunities for the network’s many locations and clinical service lines.

    James will partner with Einstein’s clinical, research, academic and administrative leadership to develop and implement volume- and revenue-generating strategies that position Einstein for success as the healthcare environment continues to go through an unprecedented level of change.

She had operational and financial responsibility for managing activities and supporting the departments of Orthopedics, Surgery, Urology, Medicine, and Cardiovascular Services, and outpatient multispecialty ambulatory sites such as the new locations in Collegeville and Holmesburg. She also supported physician recruitment and contracting, and clinical integration initiatives.

    James earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration – Health Systems Management from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, and a Master of Business Administration – Healthcare Management & Marketing from Loyola College, Baltimore, MD.
