WhidbeyHealth Announcement: Executive Director of Practice Management (interim)


WhidbeyHealth is excited to announce that effective March 29th, Garth Miller, MD will be taking on the role of interim Executive Director of Practice Management. The Executive Director of Practice Management has leadership and guidance over all WhidbeyHealth clinical operations, and we couldn’t be more excited to have Dr. Miller in this role. While in the interim role, he will retain Medical Director oversight of our MAC Wound Care Center.

Dr. Garth Miller has worn many different hats since joining the WhidbeyHealth team in 2018.  He is a board certified general surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has completed fellowships in Medical Leadership and Medical Education, having served as a Medical Director in multiple leadership roles over many years at prior institutions. He has a passion for quality and loves teaching. Dr. Miller has a patient care philosophy that focuses on customer service, quality of treatments and diagnosis, acting as an advocate for patient needs and recommending invasive care only when it is clearly in the patient’s best interest.

Miller will be replacing Dawn Martinson who departed WhidbeyHealth on 3.29.2021 in pursuit of other opportunities, closer to home.

While leading in an interim capacity, Miller will be a fundamental component of the positive change that WhidbeyHealth is looking forward to institute to all of our patients, specifically in the Primary Care, Clinical Care and Walk-In clinic settings – as this is often a community member’s introduction to WhidbeyHealth. We are eager to see the great groundwork and fundamentals that Dr. Miller’s unique experience as a healthcare leader and Medical Director can provide our community.

Join us in welcoming Dr. Garth Miller as WhidbeyHealth’s interim Executive Director of Practice Management!
