Balancing the Medical Director Clinical and Administrative Roles in Hospice

Clevis Parker, MD, HMA

Physician Consultant

Dr. Clevis T. Parker, Sr., currently serves as Chief Medical Officer for a for-profit hospice and palliative care organization based in southern Nevada.

Early in his practice, Dr. Parker recognized his passion for palliative and end-of-life care. Since then, he has devoted his practice to serving this population. His commitment to the hospice and palliative care community is based on a strong belief in the philosophy of care, and the substantial need for education and support in achieving best outcomes for those experiencing a life-limiting condition. This can be achieved by ensuring patients and families are properly educated about their disease process in order to make informed decisions based on their culture, values, and beliefs.

Dr. Parker has developed and implemented various family medicine practices, and hospice and palliative care programs including the first in-patient palliative care Joint Commission Accredited program in Indiana. His efforts have produced quality outcomes, refined work flow, and momentous process improvement projects. As a strong advocate of hospice and palliative care, he continues to support hospices by providing education on the role of the hospice medical director from a regulatory and clinical perspective across the country.

Dr. Parker completed his undergraduate studies at Xavier University of Louisiana and received his MD from Louisiana State University. He completed his residency in 1999 at East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana where he served as co-chief resident during his third year of residency. He received his Master’s degree in Health Administration with an emphasis in Health Care Ethics at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2014. He is board certified in Family Medicine and Hospice & Palliative Care.
