news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Rees was born in Springfield, Illinois on 14 June 1933, but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years. While there he got a draft notice and because he was in the Air Force ROTC program he was allowed to continue provided he graduated, otherwise the Army had a rifle for him. Graduated and in May of 1956, started pilot training in Arizona. Shortly after finishing that part of his training, the Air Force closed the base. Two days after receiving his wings he married Jo in Fort Worth, Texas. The balance of his flight training was at Goodfellow AFB it was closed to major flight operations. In Sacramento he flew RC-121 radar planes.

He left the service in July 1960 and went to work for Underwood-Olivetti and in 1962 moved to Denver for 6 months then to Colorado Springs as branch manager. They closed that office and he moved back to Denver to work for Xerox, then was transferred to Houston as a manager. During which time McClellan AFB in Sacramento was closed to major flying operations. He moved back to Denver in June of 1969 and got into real estate with a couple of former Xerox friends, then went out on his own and has been since 1975.

Jim and Jo have been married for 56 years; have 2 children, a son and daughter and several grandkids. Jim was brought into the club my Bob Stein on Feb. 2005, sat on most chairs (except Secretary) and was a President. Listen to Jim Rees.mp3

Program:  Dick Mason introduced R. Todd Welter, MSM, CPC - Founder and President of R.T. Welter and Associates, Inc. Mr. Welter has over 25 years of healthcare industry experience assisting physicians and other providers, hospitals and other facilities with the business side of medicine. Through strategic planning and analysis, Mr. Welter’s main focus is increasing revenues and profitability. Mr. Welter has a Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership from Regis University in Denver where he has had an appointment as affiliate faculty in the School for Professional Studies for over seven years. Prior to founding R.T. Welter and Associates, Mr. Welter was the Colorado representative for Medical Information Systems, Inc. (MIS). MIS was a national medical consulting firm based in Salt Lake City.

Running a profitable practice in the complex healthcare industry is no easy task. Physicians are not, typically, trained to be business people. The complicated business of healthcare needs expertise and experience and a full-time commitment. Physicians have little time to stay on top of the enormous changes always going on in the healthcare business. For more than 15 years, R.T. Welter and Associates has enabled physician practices, of all specialties, to cost effectively tap into a broad scope of expertise on the business of running a successful and profitable practice. We enjoy the confidence of physician relationships locally, nationally and internationally.
