MGMA President and CEO Dr. Susan Turney plans to resign Aug. 29 to take over as the first CEO of the Marshfield (Wis.) Clinic Health System starting Sept. 1.
Turney was the CEO and executive vice president of the Wisconsin Medical Society when it was announced she would succeed Dr. William Jessee as leader of the Englewood, Colo.-based Medical Group Management Association in October 2011. She previously was the medical director for patient financial services at the Marshfield Clinic and practiced as an internist there for 22 years.
“Dr. Turney brings her visionary leadership to the Marshfield Clinic Health System at a time of great change in healthcare in general and for the system itself,” Mark Bugher, chairman of the Marshfield Clinic Health System board of directors, said in a news release. “Her clinical patient-care background and experience and the depth of knowledge she has about the business of healthcare delivery makes her ideal to take on this important role.”
