With over a decade of progressive health care management experience as a physician executive in acute care hospitals, multi-specialty physician practices and corporate health systems, Sybert will lead Monarch by streamlining behavioral health services and refining clinical processes for people who need it most within the North Carolina communities served.

Monarch President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Peggy Terhune, Ph.D., MBA, OTR/L, looks forward to the new chief medical officer’s knowledge and experience, confident it will be instrumental in assessing and improving clinical operations including telehealth options, as well as analyzing patient care outcomes.

“Over the past several years, Dr. Sybert has been involved in redesigning care delivery with a focus on how technology can improve both health care access and chronic care management of rural and underserved populations. We welcome his insight to more efficiently bring accessible care to the populations that need it most in the communities we serve,” Terhune said.

Sybert received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology in 1995 and his medical degree in 2001 from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. In 2005, he received a master’s in public health as part of a dual residency of internal medicine and preventive medicine from the University of Texas Medical Branch.

In 2006, he concluded his formal training with a fellowship in Hospital Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is double board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties in public health and clinical informatics.

“I am most excited about joining Monarch because their mission, vision and values are palpable in the leadership, providers and staff. Throughout our careers – we work, we strive, we build – and at some point, we realize that life is not about what we achieve but about the people that we help,” Sybert said. “I look forward to taking what I have learned throughout my career and better understand how to optimize care delivery for the people who seek out services through Monarch.”
