Barb Warstler joined The Hardenbergh Group in 2019 as the associate vice president, client relations. She brings 20 years of credentialing, medical education, physician relations, and physician recruitment experience to her role working with hospital administrators, medical staff leaders, and MSPs in hospitals, health systems, CVOs, health plans, medical groups, and networks across the United States. Barb
leverages her vast professional experience to identify and place experienced, qualified MSPs to help clients fill temporary vacancies, supplement existing staff during peak workloads, assess and improve operational efficiency, prepare for upcoming regulatory surveys and
audits, pursue National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation and certification, and more.
Prior to joining The Hardenbergh Group, Barb was the director of medical staff services, credentialing and provider enrollment for the University Hospitals Health System in Cleveland, Ohio. At UH, she led the centralization of UH’s disparate medical staff offices; the transition to a paperless, system-wide reappointment process; the integration of six new hospital medical staffs into the system; and the integration of the provider enrollment and medical staff services and credentialing departments into a single department which earned perfect scores on its NCQA Central Verification Organization (CVO) survey as well as the Morrisey Innovation and Quest for Quality Awards. In addition, she developed and implemented comprehensive physician, Medical Staff leader, Chief Medical Officer, and Department Chair onboarding and
orientation programs.
Barb is a certified Fellow in the Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment, maintains her Certified Professional Medical Services Management (CPMSM) status, is certified in Lean-Six Sigma, and, in 2018, received the Credentialing Resource Center Collaboration Award.
