Dr. Tito Izard, Milwaukee Health Services Inc.

    Dr. Tito Izard was appointed president and chief executive officer of Milwaukee Health Services Inc. in 2011 following the sudden death of former president and CEO C.C. Henderson. He oversees the health of more than 30,000 low-income residents in Milwaukee by also serving as chief medical officer for the organization.

    Milwaukee Health Services is a federally qualified health center that provides a range of primary health care services including physician, dental, behavioral, benefit determination and pharmacy to low-income and underinsured populations throughout Milwaukee County.

    The clinic is located at 2555 N. Martin Luther King Drive in Milwaukee. Izard grew up just a few miles from the clinic he now operates.   

    A graduate of the Milwaukee Public Schools system, Izard also graduated from Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Medicine and Public Health.

    Izard has more than 12 years of experience as an educator, instructor and director of medical practices focused on urban health issues.  

    He has been recognized nationally for his model of recruitment and retention of providers committed to working with disparate populations, and currently employs more underrepresented minority physicians and practitioners than any other medical practice in the state.

    Thanks to Izard’s leadership, Wisconsin recently ranked seventh in the country in overall performance of its health system, according to a report released by the Commonwealth Fund.  

    Izard is also committed to education and serves as a clinical associate professor at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.

    He was named Marquette University’s Young Alumnus of the Year in 2001 for his service and dedication to Milwaukee’s underserved communities.
