“Allen’s vast experience in clinical operations, process improvement and project management, along with his proven ability to partner with faculty, makes him an excellent fit for this critical position,” said Dan Barbee, interim chief executive officer of UTMC.

Seifert said he looks forward to the opportunity to work to ensure that UT Health ambulatory clinics, both on campus and in the community, operate efficiently while raising the bar on patient-centered, high-quality care.

“The only way this can happen is to partner with our faculty and staff where everyone is pulling in the same direction,” he said.

Seifert joined the Medical College of Ohio in 1987 as a biomedical engineering technologist. In his nearly 30 years with the institution, Seifert also has served as the director of purchasing, director of support services, and director of radiation oncology. Among his notable career accomplishments are operationalizing the cancer service line and increasing revenue in Radiation Oncology by nearly $5 million in less than two years.
