The Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation, which operates the medical offices for Visalia Medical Clinical, has a new CEO.

After a national search, Paul Schofield, a healthcare executive with more than 30 years of experience, accepted the position in late May. He has served the Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation as interim CEO since February.

“I have had success in handling challenges that are similar to those we face here, so I am ready for the road ahead,” Schofield said. “I have a high respect for physicians and the responsibilities and pressures they face. Physicians want to practice medicine and if they can rely on someone they trust to run their business for them, they can be successful.”

Prior to his appointment, Schofield served 12 years as CEO of Ogden Clinic in northern Utah, an independent, physician-owned multi-specialty group operating 16 clinics with 136 providers. Schofield’s experience also includes serving as vice president for the Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital in San Luis Obispo, and he’s worked for other medical centers in Fairfield, Modesto and San Jose.

In an effort to recruit more physicians, Kaweah Delta partnered with Visalia Medical Group to form the Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation in 2015. The foundation now owns and operates the clinic, employing all staff.
