Rick Radcliffe, JD, begins service this week as a community representative on the Gundersen Health System Board of Trustees.
"This is a chance for me to give back to the communities I've called home my entire life," the Black River Falls native says. "I believe in Gundersen's mission. It's extraordinary for a local, non-profit health system to be so progressive in their thinking, and it's exciting they are on the forefront of so many innovative clinical and business initiatives."
Radcliffe is an attorney with Mubarak, Radcliffe and Berry. S.C. in Tomah, a community he's called home since 1991, and he has received care at Gundersen for more than 25 years.
"It's a testament to Gundersen that they believe in patients receiving care close to home," Radcliffe says. "There's a great opportunity for Gundersen to grow and continue to be a leader not only in Monroe County, but in other parts of western Wisconsin as well."
"Rick is a strong addition to our Board of Trustees," says Scott Rathgaber, MD, chief executive officer, Gundersen Health System. "His expertise in municipal, business, and real estate law, among other areas, will be greatly valued as we continue to enrich lives and improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve."
Radcliffe received his law degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Radcliffe replaces Jerry Kember, who recently stepped down from the Gundersen Board of Trustees after serving from 2013 to 2017.
