ENT and Allergy Associates Rewards the Continuing Contributions and Success of its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer
Tarrytown, NY –June 20, 2018: The success of an organization can be the result of many factors. But it can never be achieved without superior leadership. With that in mind, ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA), whose 200+ board certified specialists and sub-specialists treat over 80,000 patients each month in 40+ state-of-the-art locations across New York and New Jersey, today announced it has extended the contracts of both Robert Glazer, its CEO and Arthur Schwacke, its CFO.
After building a career in the medical space at various institutions in New York, Robert Glazer joined ENTA in 1998 as its CFO. Within a short period, he ascended to the CEO title and has since been instrumental in successfully envisioning, implementing and overseeing the Practice’s path toward continual and remarkable growth. This includes attracting the finest physicians to the group, significantly increasing the number of offices to better serve more and more deserving patients across New York and New Jersey, identifying numerous advances in both technology and access to the benefit of every patient, recognizing the value of strong marketing efforts in support of the practice, and helping to initiate unique and seamless affiliations with three of the leading tertiary medical centers in the region. Under his watch, ENTA has steadily grown from 20 physicians when he arrived to over 200, and from 8 offices to 41. Perhaps most importantly, Glazer has assembled a senior management team of best-in-class professionals to help him move the Practice forward.
Arthur Schwacke joined a year after Glazer, and as CFO began instituting the financial protocols and disciplines that have enabled ENTA to build an extremely healthy fiscal foundation, in spite of the challenge of the ever shifting sands of the medical sector. Among his many accomplishments, Art was a 3-time finalist in the Westchester County CFO of the Year Awards sponsored by Westfair and the Westchester Business Journal, is an ad hoc member of the Board’s Finance, IT and Managed Care Contracting Committees, Co-founder of OASIS – the risk retention group started by the practice in 2009 to insure its medical malpractice risk, automated the group’s purchasing function including the introduction of a new electronic payment system and his financial leadership resulted in ENTA receiving the coveted MAP Award for High Performance in Revenue Cycle Management from the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
“I cannot say enough about the job these two individuals have done, nor their foundational importance to the success of this Practice”, noted Robert Green MD, President of ENTA. “Simply stated, our practice would not be enjoying its current status as the premier Otolaryngology/Allergy specialty practice in the nation-wouldn’t even exist in nearly the shape it is today-if not for Bob and Art. It was our Board of Trustees’ pleasure to ensure that these two indispensable executives remain with the Practice for many more years to come.”
