ACU Leadership Transition Effective July 1st

Dr. Jo Wiggins will be stepping down as ACU Medical Director of the Geriatrics Center’s Turner Clinic on June 30, 2017.  Jo has served as Medical Director since February 2005 and has played a key leadership role in the clinical programs for the Division of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine.  She has been the lead for all ambulatory care activities for the Division as well as the Geriatrics Center ACU.  Over the past 12 years, Jo has implemented practice guidelines, created a new “team care” model, facilitated the Operations Work Group, and worked tirelessly to meet the ever-changing landscape of primary and specialty care for older patients.  Jo’s ability to have the pulse of the faculty as well as the clinical staff is one of her most admirable traits as Medical Director.  Jo’s dedication and service to the Division has been invaluable. She will keep her clinics on Wednesdays, continue to provide mentorship and leadership to the clinical faculty in the Division as Associate Chief, and serve as Director of the GICT service.  Please join us in thanking Jo for all she has done as the Geriatrics Center’s Turner Clinic ACU Medical Director.

We are pleased to announce that effective July 1, 2017, Dr. Ted Suh will become the ACU Medical Director of the Geriatrics Center’s Turner Clinic.  Ted joined the Division in November 2013 and since this time has served in various leadership capacities.  Most recently, Ted served as the Medical Director for Huron Valley PACE (Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).  Ted’s enthusiasm, professionalism, and dedication will make for a smooth Medical Director transition.  Please join us in congratulating Ted on his new role.
