Association Honors Health Care Leaders in Midland and Troy
Date:10/17/2007

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 to home.

Dr. John Tower stays consistently up-to-date on the latest patient safety and quality initiatives and shares that information through various venues with the facility's hospital and medical staff, ensuring that the patient is at the center of any quality and safety dialogue. An avid proponent of the quality initiatives fostered by the MHA Keystone Center for Patient Safety & Quality, Tower has been a catalyst in disseminating its lessons throughout Beaumont Hospitals and beyond. His leadership of the Keystone: ICU project at Beaumont led to a decreased number of cases of ventilator-associated pneumonia and nearly eliminated bloodstream infections in the hospital's intensive care units.

Tower has been instrumental in implementing the National Patient Safety Goal for Medication Reconciliation at Beaumont, ensuring medication safety along the continuum of care. His leadership in collaborative efforts has resulted in outcomes that have motivated physician leaders throughout the facility to strive to do even more to ensure patient safety.

The MHA is a state association, based in Lansing, that represents and supports Michigan hospitals, health systems and health care providers through education, advocacy and communication.
