LANSING, Mich., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Two health care leaders were presented today with the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Health Care Leadership Award. Terence F. Moore, president and chief executive officer of MidMichigan Health, Midland, received the award in the category of hospital management and governance excellence. John E. Tower, DO, FACOI, was presented with the award in the category of patient safety and quality champion. Tower is medical director of quality and patient safety officer at Beaumont Hospital, Troy.
"This award is presented for outstanding leadership to a health care organization and to the health and well-being of the community. The winners of the 2007 MHA Health Care Leadership Award have demonstrated outstanding leadership within their facilities and throughout the state, enhancing both health care and health status within their communities," said MHA President Spencer Johnson.
Terry Moore became president of MidMichigan Medical Center in Midland in 1977, a time when the facility faced financial challenges. He led the hospital through a financial turnaround, an affiliation with the medical center in Clare, and the establishment of what is now MidMichigan Health, a nonprofit regional health system providing a continuum of care throughout a 15-county area. MidMichigan Health now includes the medical centers in Midland, Clare, Gladwin and Alma.
Moore leads by example and uses his creative skills in relationship
management and networking to build bridges with others. Serving as
president and chief executive officer of the health system since its
inception, he often says, "There is no magic in systems, but there is magic
in people working together." Through his collaborative and leadership
skills, he has been the architect and builder of a coordinated set of
health care services for the mid-Michigan region that focuses on
convenience and quality, allowing residents to receive excellent care close
