"I informed the Board of Directors of my decision six months ago, and we immediately started a search for my replacement. I leave the day-to-day operations of Press Ganey in the best of hands with Rick Siegrist, who shares my passion for patient-centered care and my commitment to being partners in quality with our clients across the United States."
