"Our monthly scorecard review sessions are incredibly valuable to me as CEO.The scorecard enables us to easily scan and digest overall organisational performance and to identify any necessary course corrections.The balance of our discussion time has definitely shifted from day-to-day operations to strategic issue decision-making."
(Dr Peter Person, CEO, St Mary's-Duluth Health System, Duluth, Minnesota)

At a January meeting held to explain how SMDC's merger with Miller-Dwan would be conducted, Dr. Peter Persons, chief executive officer of SMDC, explained that St. Mary's emergency room does indeed provide emergency contraception to rape victims, provided certain Catholic guidelines are met.He was unable to comment when members of the audience relayed contrary experiences.

Calls to Nurse On-Line, a St. Mary's in-house phone referral system, inquiring about emergency contraception in the case of rape, are greeted with statements explaining that the caller has reached a Catholic facility.When pushed for more detail, one nurse responded, "I really don't know what the [emergency room] policies are."
A St. Mary's emergency-room physician who asked not to be identified said that he's never been briefed about the use of emergency contraception in regard to hospital policy.He assumes that the administration would rather that it not be prescribed, since it's not available through the pharmacy.He said the doctors can write a prescription for emergency contraception, but then women have to find it on their own.
"I do what I think is right behind closed doors. [Emergency contraception] is a woman's decision, rape or not," he said.

He started his career as an internal-medicine specialist at Duluth Clinic, which later merged with St. Mary's Medical Center to form SMDC Health System.
"You really can't overstate the role Peter played in building this health system.
