50 Most Influential Clinical Executives - 2019
Dr. Tony Tedeschi
CEO, Detroit Medical Center
Tedeschi took over as CEO in January 2017 and continues to restructure the health system. He has 20-plus years of experience in operational and clinical leadership positions. Earlier this year, DMC announced plans to add 79 slots to its graduate medical education program. DMC currently has more than 100 residency and fellowship positions. Adding that many positions at once is rare for hospitals given the costs, but the system did so in hopes of meeting primary-care needs in the Detroit area.
