Wadena, MN – January 14, 2016 — Dave Quincer, a trustee of Tri‐County Health Care in Wadena, was
recently recognized for earning certification through the Minnesota Hospital Association’s (MHA) trustee
certification program.
Under the voluntary training program, hospital board members receive training on current health care
trends; governance best practices; ethics; government regulations; patient safety and quality. Participants
undergo 35 hours of coursework, making Minnesota’s initiative the most comprehensive in the nation.
“The program is designed to help trustees remain up‐to‐date on health‐care issues, to hone their
leadership skills and to develop governance best practices,” said Joel Beiswenger, Tri‐County Health Care
President and CEO. “It is commendable that Dave saw value in continuing his education to strengthen his
board knowledge and skill base to improve the health care system in Wadena and the surrounding area.”
The comprehensive certification process prepares board members to effectively meet the growing
demands of serving on a hospital board and to be strong health care and community leaders. Dave
Quincer joins several other certified Tri‐County Health Care board members including Dave Fjeldheim,
Jolene Johannes, Jon Johnson, Matt Van Bruggen and Tom Van Bruggen, M.D.
“In Minnesota, more and more hospital trustees are formally preparing themselves to address the
often complicated issues facing hospitals and health systems today,” said Lawrence Massa, MHA president
and CEO. “Our trustee certification program proactively ensures that hospital leaders are well‐prepared to
make good decisions.

 

“With so many changes in health care policy and practice — especially under federal and state health
care reform — hospital trustees want this kind of support to be strong leaders in their organizations,” Massa
added. “And earning this certification demonstrates a trustee’s commitment to the patients and communities
the hospital serves.”
The Minnesota Hospital Association represents 143 hospitals and health systems, which provide quality care for their
patients and meet the needs of their communities. For more information about MHA’s hospital trustee certification
