National Patients' Rights Advocate Joins Truman Medical Centers as General Counsel
Date:6/25/2009

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- National patients' rights advocate William H. Colby joined Truman Medical Centers on June 22nd as General Counsel to TMC and its Charitable Foundation. He also will serve as the main administrator to the TMC Self Insurance Trust. He replaces Lewis Popper who recently retired after ten years with TMC.

"TMC is very fortunate to be able draw on the leadership and wise counsel of one of the most experienced health care advocates in the United States. Undoubtedly, Bill Colby will provide invaluable input into our ever-changing health care environment and provide us with unique guidance for the future," said John W. Bluford, III, president and chief executive officer of TMC.

Colby became a national figure during the 1980s as a proponent on the issue popularly known as "the right to die." Colby represented several Missouri families in "right to die" cases, including the well-known case of Nancy Cruzan, which he argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on Dec. 6, 1989. Colby's plea before the court ultimately led to the federal constitutional right by patients to refuse unwanted medical treatment.

"TMC's mission and work is vital to Kansas City," Colby said. "I have long admired the people that have dedicated themselves to providing the best healthcare available for the people who need it most and I am delighted to join TMC and be a part of those efforts."

Graduating in 1982 from the University of Kansas School of Law, Colby moved to Washington, D.C. and began his career serving as a clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals and then in the D.C. office of Davis Polk & Wardwell. In 1985, Colby moved to Kansas City and joined Shook, Hardy & Bacon. Over the years, he has represented large corporate clients as well as individuals in a wide variety of matters in courts across the United States.

In addition, he has worked for the Nation
