Tony Mira, Chairman & CEO of MiraMed Global Services, explains the significance of the role, "Compliance is something we take very seriously at MiraMed. MiraMed works with healthcare organizations nationwide and internationally, as such, we are very conscious of the vigilance needed to stay abreast of all of the changes happening due to political and environmental effects. The addition of Ms. Griffin in the position of Chief Compliance Officer will allow our Family of Companies to have a direct conduit to receive and direct compliance issues to appropriate resources for investigation and resolution."
