It is with deep sorrow that The Physician Alliance shares the loss of our friend and colleague, Steve Gil.
Steve joined the St. John Medical Group in 2009 and transitioned to The Physician Alliance in 2011, serving as the first staff member of the information technology department. He successfully led the integration of TPA’s disease registry, from 65,000 patients in 2011 to more than 1.3 million today. This registry and many of Steve’s other developments helped practices better understand their patient population, identify gaps in care and improve quality metrics.
Steve epitomized TPA’s paradigm of creating innovation, always pursuing opportunities to solve problems and help others. His focus on customer service and building better systems to ease burdens on physicians and practice staff led to many best practices, new ideas and improved patient care.
Prior to TPA, Steve worked as an IT statistician analyst for General Motors for 33 years at the Tech Center in Warren. He also served 5 years in the U.S. Navy as an aviation electrician and aviation machinist’s mate/jet engine mechanic. He was a helicopter mechanic on the Medevac unit and then served in the Reserves at the Naval Air facility in China Lake, California. During his service, he received the first Good Conduct Award and Meritorious Unit Commendation National Defense Service Medal.
In honor of Steve's commitment and positive impact on our work, one of TPA's meeting rooms will be renamed the Steve Gil Innovation Room.
