The CEOs of Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center and St. Luke's lead two of the largest employers in Duluth.
John Strange, President and CEO at St. Luke's, and Peter Person, CEO at Essentia Health, were the speakers at the fifth installment of "Downtown Live" in Duluth.
It's a series put on by the Greater Downtown Council intended to educate and motivate the business community.
Wednesday evening, Strange and Person spoke about their paths to their positions. Strange comes from a business background, while Person rose through the rankings as a doctor.
With differing backgrounds, they discussed how they got to their positions and how health care has changed over their careers.
"We are in a huge period of uncertainty on a lot of issues that are causing a great concern among our staffs, and among the public and the government," said Strange of the health care industry.
