Dr. Steven Mulder to Retire April 2019

Dr. Steven MulderAfter a 40 year medical career, the past 24 years with Hutchinson Health, Dr. Steven Mulder, President and CEO of Hutchinson Health, plans to retire in April 2019. Dr. Mulder first joined Hutchinson Health as a family physician in 1995. Prior to becoming President and CEO in 2009, he served as Emergency Department Medical Director, Chief Medical Officer, Director of Quality and Safety and Director of Clinical Services. Dr. Mulder has been a strong advocate for quality and safety and has participated on many committees and task forces for the Minnesota Hospital Association. 

Dr. Mulder has been a strong influence for a more integrated health care delivery system in Hutchinson.  During his tenure as CEO, Hutchinson Area Health Care and Hutchinson Medical Center merged in 2013 to form Hutchinson Health. As health care policy and payment reform have gained traction, Dr. Mulder supported a board process to identify and choose a system partner and in April of 2018 Hutchinson Health joined the HealthPartners family through a formal affiliation.

Dr. Mulder has been a constant proponent of advancing health in the Hutchinson community and throughout the state. He has received the following awards for his dedication to patients and healthcare:

  • 2012 Patient Safety Leadership, Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA)
  • 2013-2015 Dedicated Leadership to Hospital Community, MHA
  • 2016 Grassroots Champion, American Hospital Association
