Richard Reinhart, MD

Member of the Board; Walter Olson Committee

I have had an association with HY spanning 40 years that includes professional service to the institution and personal care from HY and staff. During this time, I have developed a deep respect and appreciation for how important HY is to our community. One main reason my wife and I decided to retire and live permanently year-round in Minocqua is Howard Young Hospital for the reasons noted. My experience with the Marshfield Clinic also brings additional insight into the issues existing in the medical community. I have the experience of serving on other boards and appreciate the importance of being a member of a board of directors. 

In the early-1980s I first began to do outreach cardiology consultations every other Friday traveling from the Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield to see consults at Howard Young Hospital and in the then Lakeland Medical Associates offices. During this time, I developed an appreciation of the high quality of care provided and how important HY is to the community. 

Following my 10 years in academic medicine at East Carolina University (1993-2003) I returned to practice at the Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center and continued on the staff of HY from 2001 to 2007 again appreciating the high-quality medical care including staff and physicians. 

I served as Medical Director Heart Services Marshfield Clinic/Ministry Healthcare (2012-2015). During this time, I worked to establish the cardiology clinic in HY working closely with HY leadership. 

While at Marshfield Clinic I gained insight into the operations of the clinic while serving as a member of the Board of Directors (1980-1993 and 2001-2015) as well Corporate Secretary for Marshfield Clinic (1990-93) 

My other Board experiences include Marshfield Medical Research Foundation as a board member (approx. 1988-1993) serving as chair of that board 1991-1993. I served on the board of the Wisconsin Historical Foundation (2016-2018) including serving on that board’s executive committee. 

On the personal side, my wife Toni was hospitalized twice at HY in 2018 and then in ICU for one month in 2022. From the patient perspective I was impressed with the quality of care provided as well as the caring quality of the staff and physicians and the state-of-the-art facilities and technology at HY. Additionally, the ICU stay occurred during the height of the COVID pandemic and despite this added stress the HY staff remained professional, calm, and caring. 

I appreciate the opportunity to serve on the HY Foundation Board of Directors.
