Fox Chase Cancer Center Welcomes Bradley Stees to Population Science Division
PHILADELPHIA (February 5, 2004) -- The population science division at Fox Chase Cancer Center announced the addition of Bradley Stees, MBA, CHE, of Horsham, Pa., as associate administrator for the department. Stees, a diplomat member of the American College of Healthcare Executives, has over eight years of healthcare leadership experience.
Stees will be responsible for managing the financial aspects of the population science division and its members. In addition, Stees will help identify and disseminate new resources for the support of existing and future programs. He will also be responsible for space planning and meeting budgetary requirements.
"A well-established institution such as Fox Chase was ideal for me," explained Stees. "I like to stay challenged while learning and growing with each step. I can do that here at Fox Chase."
In his previous position, Stees served as an administrative director at Murray Hill Obstetrics and Gynecology in New York City. His accomplishments for the organization included increasing the physician staff by 40 percent, developing and opening an additional site, renegotiating all service contracts and implementing a comprehensive information technology system. These changes, among many others, led to increases in revenue and patient base and decreased the organization's litigation risks and unnecessary overhead costs.
"Stees has implemented process improvements in past positions," said Susan Higman, vice president of population science and network development. "He has the requisite grants management experience on both the pre- and post-award side as well as developing systems for process efficiency. In addition, his experience with clinical programs will provide resources to the population science faculty who also maintain a clinical program."
Stees has also held positions at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, at the Morris Heights Health Center in New York and at the Charter Fairmont Hospital in Philadelphia.
After earning his bachelor of science degree from Shippensburg University, Stees went on to acquire an M.B.A. in healthcare administration from Baruch College and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and a master's degree in social work from Temple University.
Stees received the 2001 Eugene Feldman Capstone Award for the best business plan from Baruch College and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. He is also a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association.
