Summit CityMD makes key executive appointments

Summit CityMD, a health care entity created by the merger between Berkeley Heights-based Summit Medical Group and New York-based CityMD, announced on Monday it has appointed two health care veterans to growth-focused executive roles.

Robert Scoskie was named chief business development officer and Matt Gove to chief marketing officer.

Scoskie, who most recently was the executive director, strategic ventures at Northwell Health, will report to Jeffrey Le Benger, CEO of Summit CityMD. Before that, he was vice president, operations and business development at West Penn Allegheny Health System. He also held senior roles at Schering-Plough Corp. and Mon Health.

“As we strive to change the health care landscape by providing both the highest quality care and the most convenient access, it’s imperative to establish best-in-class operations with top brass talent,” Le Benger said. “Rob Scoskie’s leadership in market entry and expansion and strategic ventures will help us achieve our mission-critical goals.”

Gove, who will report to President Rob Connor, will be tasked with all Summit CityMD marketing. Prior to Summit CityMD, he was the chief consumer officer and chief marketing officer at Piedmont Healthcare in Atlanta. He previously served as senior vice president, marketing and eternal affairs at Grady Health System.

“Summit CityMD will have the ability to treat more comprehensive and specialty-specific medical needs of patients through quicker, more reliable referrals and a highly coordinated care model,” said Dr. Le Benger. “We are setting out to provide more access points for care, expand our primary care offering at a rapid pace, and grow our base of patients who will receive comprehensive care in the communities that we serve.”
