After 33 years in medicine, 20 of them in executive leadership roles, Essentia Health CEO Dr. Peter Person is announcing plans to retire in 2015.
With his retirement, Person will end a career that took him from work as an internal medicine specialist to CEO of one of the country's largest health care systems.
Person joined the Duluth Clinic as an internist in 1981. He soon began splitting his time between clinical practice and administrative roles, eventually being named Duluth Clinic president in 1995. In 1997, he was named CEO of the SMDC Health System, an integration of the Duluth Clinic and St. Mary's Medical Center. He continued seeing patients until 2000, when he moved to administration full-time after obtaining his MBA from the University of St. Thomas.
SMDC was the first of several successful system integrations Person facilitated during his career, including the formation of Essentia Health in 2004. The largest integration added Fargo-based Innovis Health in 2008. Person has served as Essentia's CEO since its inception in 2004.
Today, under Dr. Person's leadership, Essentia Health has grown into a fully integrated health system that reaches from northwestern Wisconsin to Idaho.
"You really can't overstate the role Peter played in building this health system. The average tenure of a CEO is about four and a half years. Peter's tenure has been 20 years. That's a real testament to the value he has brought to this organization."
In addition to his work with Essentia Health, Person has served on the boards of several national and local organizations, including the American Medical Group Association, the Minnesota Hospital Association, Wells Fargo Bank in Duluth, the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and APEX, the Area Partnership for Economic Expansion.
