Suzanne Heck | Market President

I love working for Mednax! Great retirement, stock options and benefits. The clinic where I work has an awesome staff that collaborates to provide the best patient care experience.

Teresa Whitaker, RN | Maternal-Fetal Medicine

I tell people all the time-- it’s my dream job! I was initially drawn to the hospital to be closer to home, but I also saw potential and many opportunities to grow the program. The hospital was already developing its child health initiatives, work in food insecurity and homelessness, and child development programs. I felt it was a place where you could see the impact of the good you were doing.

Kris Deeter, M.D., FAAP | Pediatric Intensivist Practice Medical Director, Renown Children’s Hospital Reno, Nevada

I am truly blessed and honored everyday by the trust each family puts in me to help them heal their most prized possession, their child. I work hard to live up to that trust and deliver the best possible health care to each patient.

Eric Stelnicki, M.D. | Pediatric Surgeon Practice Medical Director, Atlantic Center of Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgery Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I have been a neonatologist with Mednax for 15 years. It is very rewarding to care for neonates and their families during their journey through the NICU. I am constantly honored to work with a fantastic Mednax team in the Seattle area, not only in neonatology, but also maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric cardiology and ophthalmology. As a team, we collaborate to always improve and provide the highest level of care to every patient and family every day, and this mission motivates me each day.

Eric Demers, M.D. | Neonatologist Practice Medical Director, Pediatrix Medical Group of Washington Swedish Medical Center Seattle, Washington

Naturally, a lot of consideration went into selling my practice. I was looking for an opportunity that would allow me to grow professionally and maintain clinical autonomy while taking care of my entire team. After extensively exploring my options, selling my practice to Pediatrix and joining the company made a lot of sense for me and the entire team. It offers the protection of a large institution that isn’t going anywhere, and it’s provided long-term opportunities for all of us. It’s a very respectful, compassionate environment that allows us to practice and not be micromanaged. Aside from being relieved of all the administrative, payor and billing burdens, not a lot has changed in terms of the way we do business. The biggest difference is that we have more time to focus on our patients.

Jeffrey Kane, M.D. | Practice medical director, Child Neurology Consultants of Austin

I am just always in awe of what our clinicians do—and I am extremely proud to support them.

Dominic J. Andreano, J.D. | Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary

I have been with the company for four years, and have worked in various departments. I love being part of a big company that is committed to provide elite care to patients and great customer service. My day consists of helping and fixing accounts to provide our patients with the best experience possible.

Priscilla Gortarez | Customer Service Coordinator

What I like most about my job is serving as a first responder within the hospital setting for those patients who present with emergent obstetrical or gynecological conditions warranting medical treatment. I enjoy my flexible work schedule. I also find it rewarding to work for a company that values its physicians' physical and mental health.

Cimberly Penick, D.O., MBA, FACOG | OB Hospitalist Medical Director, Riverside Community Hospital Riverside, California

I’m passionate about maternal-fetal medicine because we are privileged to accompany our patient families through their most difficult and also most joyful times. My practice ranges from cutting edge surgery (I specialize in fetal therapy) to empowering women to have their most healthy birth experience. What could possibly be better?

Bettina Paek, M.D. | Perinatologist Eastside Maternal Fetal Medicine Evergreen Hospital Medical Center Bellevue, Washington

I always call this my dream job and I am telling the truth. I was looking for a maternal-fetal medicine practice that allowed me to still do deliveries and manage high-risk pregnancies entirely (including routine OB care and delivery) rather than just be a consultant and just do ultrasounds. This feels like I'm connecting with the patients in a different and more personal way. I am holding their hand through the most stressful and joyful time of their life. That is why I went into MFM and why I love this job so much.

Jennifer Hernandez, M.D., FACOG | Perinatologist Obstetrix Medical Group of Texas Fort Worth, Texas

For several decades, Mednax has been instrumental in providing high quality obstetric care to Native American women across Arizona. I am honored to be part of such a trusted, long-term partnership.

Tomekia Lynn Strickland, M.D. | OB Hospitalist Phoenix Perinatal Associates Phoenix, Arizona

What motivates me is teaching medical students and young physicians who are stepping into women’s health care, knowing that they will, in turn, inspire the next generation of physicians in the years ahead.

Jane Dimer, M.D., FACOG | Perinatologist Obstetrix Medical Group of Washington Swedish Medical Center Seattle, Washington

I'm passionate about pediatric infectious disease because it's constantly changing. There are new or resistant infections and different infections appear in news media with different seasons. Prevention is a big part of infectious disease, and I appreciate talking with patients and families on how they can prevent some of these serious diseases.

Zachary Hoy, M.D. | Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist Practice Medical Director, Nashville Pediatric Infectious Disease The Children’s Hospital at TriStar Centennial Medical Center Nashville, Tennessee

Joining Pediatrix® Medical Group has put our business goals within reach. The resources Pediatrix brings to bear and the opportunity to collaborate with a wealth of professionals in the health care space allows us to innovate and improve pediatric urgent care as a service and as a profession.
