Aspirus Health ACHE-WI LDP Site Visit, June 23, 2022

The ACHE WI LDP cohort had their first site visit on Thursday, June 23, 2022.  This virtual visit showcased Aspirus Health, led by Andrea Harsh, System Manager-Provider Experience.  Aspirus is a non-profit, community-directed health system based in Wausau, Wisconsin. With more than 7,000 employees, Aspirus serves people in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan through an extensive hospital and clinic network, home health & hospice care, pharmacies, critical care, medical goods, nursing homes, a philanthropic & research foundation, and an affiliated physician network.  Nine Aspirus leaders presented information ranging from how Aspirus works with schools to create experiences for students, The Medical College of WI, takeaways from a large system acquisition, The Aspirus Family House and a panel of leaders who provided insights and personal perspectives for successful leadership in healthcare.  It was a day packed full of information, conversation, and opportunity for emerging leaders to reflect on the development of their own leadership path.  The biggest takeaway from all of the leaders was “Just say yes”!
