Dale Vidal, MD has joined APD as the Executive Director of the Multi-Specialty Clinic (MSC) and member of its Senior Leadership Team.
Dr. Vidal spent the last 21 years practicing at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where she served as the Chief of Plastic Surgery and the Medical Director of the Center for Shared Decision Making. She also served as a Professor of Surgery at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.
“Dale brings significant experience and knowledge to our organization,” said APD President & CEO Sue Mooney, MD, MS, FACOG. “As physician-governed clinic, the Multi-Specialty Clinic is designed to deliver what patients truly need and I can’t think of anyone more suited to lead it than Dale,” said Mooney.
The 44,000 square-foot MSC will enable APD to care for outpatients in this new, one-stop destination. It will house most of the outpatient departments at APD, including Primary & Family Care, General Surgery, Geriatrics, Occupational Health, Orthopaedics, Pain Management, Pediatrics, Podiatry, Urology, and Women’s Care. Additionally, the Multi-Specialty Clinic will include outpatient phlebotomy, radiology, and rehabilitative services. All of the services in the MSC will be supported with care coordination and case management, continuous quality improvement, and information management. The Multi-Specialty Clinic is expected to be staffed by more than 50 providers as well as 100-200 medical support personnel.
“The opportunity to serve our community is a large part of my attraction to APD and this position,” Vidal said. “I also strongly support Sue’s goals with regard to increased patient access, improved quality, and lower healthcare costs for patients,” Vidal said.
Vidal attended Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA and received her post-doctoral education at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO. Vidal also received her Master of Science from the Geisel School of Medicine, Center for Evaluative Clinical Sciences (now the Dartmouth Institute.)
