Dr. Katz will promote organization’s medical directors at each community, and guide clinical care standards
ORLANDO, March 1, 2023 — Westminster Communities of Florida is pleased to announce that Paul Katz, M.D., has accepted the position of Enterprise Medical Director for the organization effective February 2023. We have worked with Dr. Katz since 2015, when he joined the faculty of Florida State University, and the medical staff of Westminster Oaks, a Life Plan Community in Tallahassee. Recently, he has served as the Medical Director at Westminster Oaks.
Dr. Katz has strong experience in the delivery of medical care to the older adult as well as education and research into best practices for clinical services.
As Enterprise Medical Director, Dr. Katz will support the Medical Directors at each campus. In this role, Dr. Katz will also assist the Westminster organization in the development and implementation of standards related to clinical care. He will provide guidance in the review of, and recommendations for, research proposals which would involve residents or team members of our communities.
Dr. Katz serves as a resource to the Enterprise Risk Management Committee and to the Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) functions for the organization, including our participation in the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI). SQLI is a consortium of high performing providers in North America which collects and compares data to identify best practices and opportunity for improvement among the members. Westminster has participated in SQLI since 2015.
“Please join us in congratulating Dr. Katz and welcoming him to this new role in the Westminster family,” said Garry Hennis, Chief Operating Officer.
