A hospital executive for more than two decades, Rick Ament builds a culture of sustainability in these organizations through his firm, SOS Partners. The Wisconsin-based company merges green business practices with process improvements. By marrying the two, Rick Ament aims to deliver a greater return on investment for hospitals while promoting environmentally conscientous solutions while engaging staff..

Rick Ament started the business after identifying a need in the health care industry. Earlier, the award-winning executive spent years as a CEO, President, and consultant to nearly three dozen health care institutions.

Mr. Ament’s experience has spanned nonprofit, governmental, and investor-owned organizations. He has turned around faltering hospitals, including the Bay Area Medical Center, which was named Turnaround Hospital of the Year during his time as CEO.
