Jackson Clinic Welcomes New Administrator

Hospital news | Friday, April 24, 2009

Jackson Hospital announces the promotion of Michael Ritzus to administrator of the Jackson Clinic.

Ritzus joined the hospital staff 11 years ago as a certified pharmacy technician. He was promoted to pharmacy technician supervisor and then to informatics coordinator. In 2007, he was named assistant director of patient access.

A year later he began managing four physician practices at Jackson Clinic. In his new role he will manage additional medical practices, and will help transition to the Next Gen electronic medical record system. In addition, he will help implement the Next MD patient portal product, which are both featured in an upcoming issue of Jackson Hospital’s Partners magazine.

“Michael is an outstanding young leader at Jackson Hospital,” said chief executive officer Donald G. Henderson, “and we welcome him to his new responsibilities and look forward to his continued growth and success.”

Ritzus has a master of science in health administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a master of public administration from Auburn Montgomery and a bachelor of science in business administration from Auburn Montgomery.
