Apollo Medical Holdings Inc. announced Tuesday that it has appointed Shawn M. Burns as its new senior vice president of physician services.

Prior to joining the Glendale health management company, Burns served as executive vice president of physician services for Sound Physicians in Ventura. He worked in that position for three years, helping grow the organization from $25 million in revenue to $350 million in revenue. In addition, he helped change the capital structure of the company, which is now valued at more than $700 million.

Before joining Sound, Burns served as director of physician recruitment for DaVita Healthcare Partners Inc., overseeing doctor recruitment on a national level.

In his new position, he will help ApolloMed with physician recruitment, professional development and retention.

“I am excited to start a new challenge within ApolloMed and look forward to working with the existing team to further grow their already extensive offerings utilized in meeting the health care needs of patients,” Burns said in a statement.

ApolloMed shares were unchanged at $8.01 on the over-the-counter market.
