Effective January 3, 2020, Tina Georgy (pictured) will step down as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Great Plains Quality Innovation Network. Georgy will continue as the CEO for the parent company, CIMRO, based in Champaign, Illinois.
Georgy’s executive leadership spans 30+ years in multiple entities as part of the CIMRO enterprise, including 11 years as Chief Operating Officer and CEO for 22 years. She served as the CEO of Great Plains QIN’s predecessor, CIMRO of Nebraska, when it was established in 2003 with award of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) contract. When CMS consolidated QIO contracts in 2014, she led the formation of Great Plains QIN serving Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota and North Dakota. During her career, she served on the Board of Directors and held various committee positions with the American Health Quality Association, the national trade association representing QIOs.
“Georgy’s leadership for three decades has been vital to the CIMRO enterprise.” said Great Plains Quality Innovation Network’s Board of Director’s Chair Ronald Johnson, MD. “Her unwavering commitment to conducting business with the highest degree of service and integrity was clear to all. Governmental contracting is a tough business and she rose above the many challenges to create programs and systems that inspired others to consistently exceed expectations. Her presence will be missed.”
“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Georgy since early in her career.” said CIMRO’s Board of Director’s Chair Barry Slotky MD. “Her leadership has been a key reason to CIMRO’s ongoing success in a very competitive environment. We are pleased she will continue to lead CIMRO’s operation with its external independent peer review services. Her commitment to superior service is second to none.”
