The Bush Foundation is proud to introduce Cory Martin, MD, Stellis Health, P. A. as one of twenty four recipients of the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Each Bush Fellow will receive up to $100,000 to pursue the education and experiences they believe will help make them more effective leaders.
“The 2017 Bush Fellows are extraordinary leaders who make significant contributions to their communities. The Bush Fellowship is both a recognition of their accomplishments, and a bet on their potential to make an even bigger impact on our region,” said Bush Foundation President Jennifer Ford Reedy.
The Fellowship is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing each Fellow to create a leadership development plan that is tailored to their needs and ambition. Fellows can use the funding to pursue advanced education, networking opportunities, and leadership resources, workshops and trainings.
The Foundation received nearly 650 applications for the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Applicants described their leadership vision and how a Bush Fellowship would both help them achieve their goals and make their community better. The 2017 Bush Fellows were selected through a multi stage process involving past Bush Fellows, Bush Foundation staff and community leaders from across the region.
More than 2,000 people have taken advantage of the Fellowship to become better leaders through a self-designed learning experience, academic program or travel and research across the country to build connections with thought leaders on topics critical to their community. The Bush Fellowship counts among its alumni celebrated Oglala Lakota painter and educator Arthur Douglas Amiotte, internationally-known artist Judith Onofrio, and f0rmer Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson.
The total cost of care at Stellis Health is 17 percent lower than the Minnesota state average, according to a new report by the Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) nonprofit. The report looks at clinic costs across Minnesota and assesses whether the increased costs are the result of clinics charging more or ordering more care like tests, follow-up visits, and prescriptions.
The new Stellis Health logo features a star twinkling at the horizon to symbolize the Latin root meaning of Stellis and the physician’s daily calling to watch over our communities’ health.
Stellis Health is the new name for Buffalo Clinic, Monticello Clinic, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinic. And though you’ll be seeing new signage outside all three clinics, inside, you’ll find the same primary and specialty physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who’ve been treating patients all these years.
