                         Monday, April 29, 2019

  Mrs. BUSTOS. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize Richard Seidler 
for his retirement from UnityPoint Health-Trinity as president and 
Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Seidler has 37 years of leadership 
experience within the health care industry.
  Mr. Seidler received his MBA and BBA from the University of Miami in 
Florida, and is Board Certified in Health Care Management. He is a 
Fellow in the American College of Health Care Administrators and 
received the Distinguished Service Award in 2011. Mr. Seidler's 
professional experience ranges from Assistant Administrator, Chief 
Operating Officer and Chief Executive Officer when he was in 
California. His vision and expertise have driven the success of 
facility mergers, managed care organizations, primary care group 
acquisitions, market share and referral increases, new partnerships 
with insurers and the development of comprehensive outpatient campuses 
and cardiovascular centers. Mr. Seidler came to Trinity and the Quad-
Cities in 2010 following twelve years leading Allen Health System in 
Waterloo, Iowa. He also serves on several boards and has shown a 
continued dedication to the Quad-Cities community.
  It is because of dedicated leaders such as Mr. Seidler that I am 
especially proud to serve Illinois' 17th Congressional District. Madam 
Speaker, I would like to again formally congratulate Mr. Seidler on his 
retirement and thank him for his service to the community.
