Wagner will oversee Inspira’s physician enterprise, attracting and retaining top talent, growing and developing new innovative service lines, and driving Inspira’s work as a High Reliability Organization, placing the safety and health of patients at the center of all it does. He will also continue to serve as interim chief medical officer of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill.

I look forward to furthering our partnership to transform health outcomes of our community.”

Wagner began at Inspira as an emergency physician in 2002, having since served as the chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine for Bridgeton, Elmer and Vineland and most recently as the chief medical officer for Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill and Inspira Health Center Woodbury. Over the course of his career with Inspira, he has played an integral role in driving High Reliability principles across the network by fostering innovation as a means to improve the patient experience and health outcomes, facilitating the expansion of access to drive convenience for the South Jersey community, and more.

“I am honored to serve in this new role and am looking forward to entering this next chapter with Inspira Health, especially as we stand on the precipice of such significant growth and expansion,” said Wagner in a prepared statement. “The health care landscape has transformed significantly over the past few years, and even more so as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rooted in a firm foundation of High Reliability principles, Inspira will continue to deliver, and expand upon, the high-quality care that is synonymous with our organization, ultimately fostering healthier communities.”
