Stanford Medical Center Alumni Association has posted an article about Frist’s role with Carrick Capital Partners in the Class Notes section of their site. “William H. Frist (Resident ’85, Fellow ’85-’87) Carrick Capital Partners, LLC, an investment firm focused on fast growing software and technology-enabled services firms, announced that Senator William H. Frist, MD, Resident ’85, Med Fellow ’87, has become a Special Advisor to the firm.
Dr. Frist is a nationally acclaimed heart and lung transplant surgeon, former U. S. Senate Majority Leader, and chairman of the Executive Board of the health service private equity firm Cressey & Company. He represented Tennessee in the U.S. Senate for 12 years where he served on both the Health and Finance committees responsible for writing health legislation. He was elected Majority Leader of the Senate, having served fewer total years in Congress than any person chosen to lead that body in history. His leadership was instrumental in passage of the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act to provide prescription drugs at lower costs to seniors and the historic legislation (PEPFAR) that reversed the spread of HIV/AIDS worldwide.”
