A long-time healthcare entrepreneur, Mr. Shields’ first venture was in the nursing home field. He then led the creation of kidney dialysis centers, MRI & PET/CT service lines, medical office space and cancer radiation therapy centers.
For more than 30 years, the Shields family, through the Shields Health Care Group, has been investing in people-centered enterprises – medical, charitable, social service and recreational – that promote the health of individuals and the well-being of the many communities we serve. The success of the company and Shields’ many partners has been based upon several key strengths: strategic planning, market knowledge, management expertise, clinical excellence and Gold Standard service and implementation.
As CEO, Tom’s leadership was evident through his commitment to providing quality medical services with the patient’s dignity, comfort, and peace of mind as paramount considerations.
