Dr. Susan Turney Turney
CEO, Marshfield Clinic Health System
Turney is one of the nation’s most prominent voices regionally and nationally for rural providers. She played a key role during various pandemic relief efforts to ensure rural hospitals were included in legislative packages. As part of her focus, Turney ensured that Marshfield was part of a public-private partnership in Wisconsin to increase laboratory testing capacity for COVID-19. And throughout the pandemic, Turney kept the health system focused on its growth strategy, acquiring two hospitals and opening a new one in 2020. It also received approval to build a new hospital in Stevens Point, Wis.
