René Mercer has joined The University of Arizona Health Network (UAHN) as clinical operations manager, Pediatrics.

As the clinical operations manager, Mercer will oversee the clinical operations for all UAHN pediatric outpatient clinical locations. He will work closely with the faculty and staff of the pediatric clinics to ensure efficient workflows and a successful “total patient experience”—from the patient’s first phone call to the clinic, to his or her completion of care.

“René comes to pediatrics with a strong background in clinical operations and will be a vital component of our successful transition into EPIC—our new comprehensive patient management and electronic health record system—and many other challenges over the next several years,” said Tracy Goggin, assistant administrator for clinical operations, Pediatrics.

Previously, Mercer was the operations manager for Ophthalmology at The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus.

Mercer has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Phoenix.
