Doug Geinzer brings goals, experience to not-for-profit organization

LAS VEGAS, Nev.Doug Geinzer may be new to the position of CEO of the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition (SNMIC), but he’s well-versed in the not-for-profit organization, as he’s been involved with it since its inception eight years ago.

SNMIC exists to provide a collective voice to improve access and delivery of quality health care in Southern Nevada by fostering strategic alliances in the health care community, collaborating on human resource issues, and by acting as a proactive force for legislative improvements.

“The work with SNMIC melds my passion for health care and education,” Geinzer said. “I volunteered for eight years, chaired the recruitment task force for seven years, was a member of the board of directors for four years and began as the chairman of the board 18 months ago. Having experience in all aspects of the organization will be helpful as I step into the role of CEO.”

Because of his experience, Geinzer has his sights set on goals firmly in place. An important objective to Geinzer is to elevate the presence of health care in Southern Nevada while working on development and “growing our own talent here in Southern Nevada,” he said. “We’ve been importing it.”

Education is at the forefront as Geinzer was the founder and former president of Recruiting Nevada, which attracts jobseekers mainly focused on the education and medical fields to Nevada. SNMIC’s membership and sponsorship development also are high on his list along with creating a politically unified voice for the health care industry in order to influence people and change policy.

“We have been working toward these goals for eight years,” Geinzer said. “Now it’s time to make it all happen.”

Geinzer is a member of the Society of Human Resource Management, Nevada Hospital Association and the Nevada Healthcare Association. He also serves on the board of directors for the American Heart Association and is an active committee member of the Governors Workforce Investment Board and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Business Council. Geinzer founded the Las Vegas chapter of the Entrepreneur’s Association and served as a board member for five years.   

Founded in 2002, SNMIC is a volunteer organization committed to improving the quality of life for the residents of Southern Nevada now and in the future. SNMIC stands as a collective voice to ensure improved access and delivery of quality health care to the rapidly growing region and focuses on legislative improvements, human resources and strategic alliances.
