Stephen Bartlett, MD, vice president and chief medical officer at OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center, was recently named one of the 2021 People You Should Know by the Rockford Chamber of Commerce.
Highlighting individuals who are compelling, interesting and “doers,” People You Should Know are admired for their work, drive, dedication and commitment to what they believe in. These are business individuals who work hard each and every day to make the Rockford community a better place to live, work, learn and play.
Dr. Bartlett joined OSF HealthCare in 2019 and on top of his administrative duties, he still delivers patient care as a surgeon.
“What I have enjoyed as a surgeon is the immediate reward you get when you take action,” he says. “You don’t even have to wait to get to the recovery room to know when you’ve hit it out of the park.”
People You Should Know began in 2011 and, including this year’s class, has honored 145 leaders since then. This year’s class is comprised of men and women representing a variety of industries, including health care, government, nonprofits, finance, education and professional services. Honorees are business leaders who impact their respective organizations and industries and who positively affect the local business environment.
“I am honored to be recognized in this year’s group of People You Should Know,” Dr. Bartlett said. “I enjoy serving the surrounding Rockford community with the greatest care and love every day in both administrative and surgical role.”
