Retired President and Chief Executive Officer for Henry Ford Health System
Ms. Schlichting is the retired President and Chief Executive officer of Henry Ford Health System (“HFHS”) in Detroit, Michigan, serving in this role from June, 2003 to January, 2017. She joined HFHS in 1998 as Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, and was promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (1999-2003), and President and Chief Executive Officer of HFHS (2001-2003). She currently serves as a director of Walgreens Boots Alliance (11 years of Board service, chair of Compensation Committee and member of Audit Committee), a member of the Board of Managers of Ardent Health Services, and a trustee of Kresge Foundation (chair of Compensation Committee and member of Audit Committee), Duke University Health System, and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. Schlichting's career in healthcare administration spans more than 35 years in senior-level executive roles. She is credited with leading HFHS through a dramatic financial turnaround, and for award-winning customer service, quality and diversity initiatives, including HFHS being the recipient of the 2011 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Her significant healthcare leadership background, and her comprehensive knowledge of finance and accounting gained by education, experience and service on audit committees for more than a decade provide the Board with additional depth and invaluable insights.
Meetings and Committees of the Board of Directors
It is the general policy of the Company that all significant decisions be considered by the Board as a whole. As a consequence, the committee structure of the Board is limited to those committees considered to be basic to, or required for, the operation of a publicly owned company. Currently these committees are the Compensation and Management Development Committee, Audit Committee and Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee, each of which has a written charter adopted by the Board of Directors. The Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee recommends the members and chairs of these committees to the Board. The Audit Committee, Compensation and Management Development Committee and Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee are made up of only independent directors. The current charter for each of the Board's standing committees is available on this website and is available in print from this website or to any shareholder who requests it through the Company's Investor Relations office.
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009, the Board of Directors of the Company held seven meetings. During this period, no member of the Board of Directors attended fewer than 75% of the aggregate of the number of meetings of the full Board of Directors and the number of meetings of the committees on which he or she served.
