Leadership Profiles

St. Anthony’s has a new and unique leadership approach. Instead of a traditional administrative structure, there is a physician-oriented Office of the President with three outstanding physician leaders: Dr. David Morton, Dr. Chris Bowe, and Dr. Jack Mitstifer. Michael E. Rindler is the fourth member of the Office of the President.

The four leaders function as a collaborative team putting patient care quality at the very top of St. Anthony’s priority list. No other hospital in St. Louis has placed so many physicians in positions of senior leadership. At St. Anthony’s, physicians are not just valued as team members, they are the team.

Together, they look forward to advancing St. Anthony’s in every way with our unique vision of physician-oriented leadership.
