INTEGRATED Healthcare Strategies is proud to share that Don Wegmiller, our former President and current Chairman Emeritus, is being honored for his many achievements with an induction into Modern Healthcare's “Health Care Hall of Fame”!
One of the healthcare industry's most prestigious recognition programs, the "Health Care Hall of Fame" honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the healthcare industry in this country and around the world. Past awardees include Doctors Charles and William Mayo, founders of the Mayo Clinic; Dr. Michael Debakey, noted international heart surgeon, and fellow 2013 inductees, Dr. Denton Cooley, heart transplant surgeon, and Sister M. Maurita Sengelaub, past president of the Catholic Hospital Association (now the Catholic Health Association) and the first woman to hold that position.
A prominent figure in healthcare for over 40 years, Don Wegmiller is a recognized leader and innovator in hospital, clinic, and integrated system development and operations improvement, pioneering new concepts for multi-hospital systems. Don continues to provide the healthcare industry with insights and guidance through his dynamic and charismatic approach to health care leadership. He was recently elected as Chairman of the Scottsdale Institute, an association of advanced healthcare-delivery systems aimed at sharing best practices for information technology-enabled quality improvement.
A small sample of Don Wegmiller’s past recognitions include: first recipient of the Robert S. Hudgens award; named as one of “Healthcare’s 100 Most Powerful People” by Modern Healthcare; awarded the B’nai B’rith National Healthcare Award; and ranking on the “Who’s Who in America” and “Who’s Who in Healthcare” lists.
We look forward to honoring Don Wegmiller, along with the two other 2013 inductees, at a ceremony on March 10, 2013 at the Hilton Chicago in conjunction with the American College of Healthcare Executives' 2013 Congress on Healthcare Leadership. Look for the profiles of the 2013 inductees that will be published in the March 11, 2013 issue of Modern Healthcare.
INTEGRATED has been privileged to have Don’s leadership in our organization, and we are pleased that he is receiving this honored recognition of his many achievements!
