ACMC administrator recognized for Excellence in Health Care Administration

Affiliated Community Medical Center Administrator Terry Tone was recently recognized for excellence in health care administration by Minnesota Physician magazine.

Every seven years, Minnesota Physician recognizes health care administrators who have exhibited exceptional leadership and enhanced the effectiveness of healthcare delivery in their practice. Nominations were solicited from peers and the Minnesota Medical Group Management Association.

Among the guidelines for consideration were:

how the individual's work contributed to the organization's growth

dedication to improving health care delivery

participation in professional association activities

The recently released August edition of Minnesota Physician magazine profiled 23 administrators representing a cross-section of the excellent work being done throughout the state in a range of administrative positions and types of health care organizations.

"Terry Tone's ability to focus on the big picture has helped lead ACMC to where we are today," said Dr. Ronald Holmgren, ACMC president and CEO.

"His achievements, partnerships and passion through the years have strengthened and guided ACMC in meeting the needs of health care in the communities we serve."

Tone became involved in his profession through his lifelong interest in the field of health care. He joined Affiliated Community Medical Centers in 1994.
