Butch Marino has been named the new CEO of Riverside Oral Surgery, according to a recent announcement from the Tolan Group, which conducted a national search for the surgical facility.

His intellectual knowledge and experience include ambulatory surgery centers, urgent care centers, diagnostic imaging centers and dialysis centers.

Prior to C1HA, Marino co-founded Baltimore, Maryland-based ChoiceOne Urgent Care in 2014 and led the transaction to merge with Austin, Texas-based MedSpring Urgent Care in 2017. The combined entity represented one of the largest urgent care businesses in the U.S., with multiple centers in Maryland, Georgia, Illinois and Texas.

With over 25 years in health care corporate development and senior leadership experience as a CEO and president, Marino was responsible for the overall management, strategy and direction of ChoiceOne/MedSpring Urgent Care. Furthermore, he was responsible for approving key decisions impacting the enterprise, including long-range strategic plans, capital allocation, joint ventures, mergers and major acquisitions.
