Seth Ciabotti has been selected to serve as Michigan State University Health Care’s new CEO. He was chosen by the MSU Health Care search committee and approved by the Health Care and HealthTeam governing boards in June. He began serving in his new role on August 19, 2019.

During his first week at the university, he visited HealthTeam clinic sites and met with university and college leadership.

“The MSU community has been friendly and caring in the time I’ve been here — impressively so,” Ciabotti said. “Michigan State University Health Care providers, with their expert healing, teaching and research skills, have much to offer our community, future health partners and every patient, faculty and staff member who walk through our doors. I am honored to be selected by the MSU Health Care Search Committee to work alongside them to create a revitalized future.”

Ciabotti has 20 years of experience as vice president of ambulatory operations for Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. He is known for his leadership to rebuild, revitalize and optimize organizational structures to improve patient access and satisfaction.

He brought several new initiatives to Mount Sinai Health System during his tenure, including a Patient Access Center, EPIC Cadence/Resolute implementation with self-check-in kiosks and robotic processing automation. The Patient Access Center won two awards from the Patient Access Collaborative, a prestigious invite-only consortium of 80+ academic medical centers.

“Seth’s experience demonstrates an understanding of standardization within large outpatient networks while maintaining a healing and safe environment. His knowledge and experience leading organizational improvement will be beneficial at MSU and our commitment to get it right for every patient every time,” said Norman J. Beauchamp, Jr., associate provost and assistant vice president for health affairs.

Ciabotti also has held positions as chief administrative officer/executive director of Prime Care Physicians, PLLC and St. Peter’s Health Partners, a practice administrator for a surgery group, practice supervisor for a spine and rehabilitative center, care coordinator for counseling services, administrative coordinator and claims coordinator for Blue Cross Blue Shield.

He holds a master’s in health administration from Hofstra University, a bachelor’s from University at Albany and an administrative fellowship from Kings County Hospital Center in Brooklyn. He is Six Sigma Green Belt Certified.

He is an active member of several national health care organizations and serves as a keynote speaker at national conferences including the Patient Access Symposium Conference.

Seth resides in Okemos with his wife Michelle and their three young children.
