April 16, 2019

Chris Restad, DO
FPA Network, Medical Officer
Networking and Credentialing
Christopher Restad, DO, joins Fairview Physician Associates (FPA) as our new Medical Officer of Networking and Credentialing.

Chris is no stranger to our organization — he is a physician who currently practices in the Fairview Physicians Associates Network. A doctor of osteopathy at the HealthEast clinic in Stillwater, Chris has served as the senior medical director of quality and patient safety at HealthEast primary care clinics and most recently in leadership roles in the Fairview ambulatory quality and safety departments.

Chris’ interest in clinical quality was a key element of his service in the Air Force, where he participated in all levels of quality care metrics and leadership from local tracking to advisory councils with the Air Force surgeon general for ambulatory, surgical, deployed and hospital settings.

In his new role, Chris will serve as the primary physician leader for the credentialing clinical vision of the network and assist with the clinical vision to assure effective and efficient delivery of quality medical care. He’ll promote clinical integration and clinical best practices and lead care delivery and quality improvement initiatives, including case review and case management initiatives.

Chris will continue his medical practice while taking on this additional role.

We’re looking forward to partnering with Chris to continue to move quality medical care forward within our network.
