MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A former Marshfield Clinic executive who later headed a national health care trade group is returning to central Wisconsin to become the clinic's first CEO.
Susan Turney will begin her new post on September 1st.
She served in various clinical and administrative roles for Marshfield Clinic for 22 years. She most recently served as president and CEO of the Medical Group Management Association near Denver.
Marshfield Clinic doctors used to make all the decisions for one of the nation's largest multi-specialty groups. Earlier this year, the IRS approved the formation of an independent board headed by former state Revenue Secretary and UW-Madison Research Park official Mark Bugher.
The board oversees all parts of the Clinic's organization, which has rapidly grown in central and northern Wisconsin over the past 35 years.
Six doctors started Marshfield Clinic in 1916. The clinic's current Health System was formed in 2012. It now has a total of 700 doctors, 6,600 employees, and around $2 billion in annual revenues.
