Dr. Justin Coffey currently serves as Vice President and Chief Information Officer at the Menninger Clinic, where he is also the Medical Director of the Menninger Center for Brain Stimulation. Dr. Coffey was recruited to the Baylor College of Medicine in 2014, prior to which he served as the Medical Director of the Center for Brain Stimulation Therapies at Henry Ford Hospital, as Chief of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry at Henry Ford Health System, and as Director of Project Helios for Behavioral Health Services at Henry Ford Health System.
Dr. Coffey’s clinical interests focus on brain-behavior relations in patients suffering from severe mood disorders and movement disorders, including catatonia. He has been recognized as a gifted medical educator (AADPRT Ginsberg Fellow, Golden Beeper Award, Herbert Schmale Award, Frankwood Williams Award, David Leach MD Award) and an up-and-coming health care leader (American Psychiatric Association Leadership Fellow, Henry Ford Health System Advanced Leadership Academy Fellow). His academic work is in the fields of suicide prevention and health care delivery. He has led the Perfect Depression Care Spread initiative at Henry Ford Health System, and he has worked with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to develop the Open School of Health Professions.
He is by training a neuropsychiatrist, by inspiration a medical educator, by interest a student of quality improvement and health care delivery, by rearing a family man, and by nature someone who performs best in thoughtful conversation with others.
His personal philosophy on practicing medicine is that if you listen actively and observe carefully, the patient will tell you everything you need to know.
