ST. LOUIS – In a first for the AMGA, Donn E. Sorensen, president of Mercy’s east Missouri region, will serve a second one-year term as chair of its board of directors, which began Jan. 1. The AMGA represents multispecialty medical groups and organized systems of care, including some of the nation’s largest, most prestigious integrated health care delivery systems.
