Obama to appoint Nancy Schlichting as chairperson of Commission on Care

On Friday, President Obama announced his plan to select Nancy Schlichting, CEO of Henry Ford Health System (Detroit), as chairperson of the Commission on Care, according to a PR Newswire report.

The Commission on Care was established by Congress under President George W. Bush in 2007. The commission's objective is to work with the Veterans' Health Administration and establish the best way to deliver healthcare to military veterans. Two others have also been slated for appointment to the Commission on Care.

"These fine public servants bring a depth of experience and tremendous dedication to their important roles. I look forward to working with them," President Obama said of the slated candidates in a White House news release.

Ms. Schlichting has been CEO of Henry Ford Health System since 2003, and has been the recipient of numerous leadership awards. In addition, Ms. Schlichting helped Henry Ford gain the 2011 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. This award is given annually by the President and recognizes organizations for their performance excellence.
