Fairview leaders Rulon Stacey and Carolyn Wilson earn national recognition
Two Fairview leaders have been named as “Leaders to Know” on a list which recognizes health care leaders from hospitals and health systems across the country.
Rulon F. Stacey, PhD, FACHE, Fairview president and CEO, and Carolyn Wilson, RN, president of University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, were named on the Becker’s Hospital Review 2013 list of “300 Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know.”
Leaders featured on this list “have shown dedication to health care delivery at local, regional and national levels,” according to Becker’s. “Some have held their positions for a few months, while others have been at the helm for more than 20 years—but each has demonstrated great commitment to improving health care in America.”
Stacey joined Fairview on Nov. 4. Previously, he was president of University of Colorado Health, and before that, he was CEO of Colorado’s Poudre Valley Health System for 16 years. Under his leadership, the system was the only health care organization in the country to receive the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2008, the nation’s highest presidential recognition for performance excellence.
Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in business administration. She joined Fairview in November 2011. She has nearly 30 years of experience in health care, ranging from direct patient care to leadership positions.
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team included leaders on this list based on a number of factors, including recognition they have received and their organization’s recent performance.
