A westerner by birth, Tom Wilson received his undergraduate degree from Utah State University and a Masters at the U.C. Berkeley Hospital Administration program. His early career centered in hospital management and he rose to become the CEO of a teaching hospital. Mr. Wilson’s emphasis shifted to outpatient facility management when he became the Group-Vice President for a large hospital management company directing their ambulatory surgery centers national division. In 1990 he purchased three ASCs and subsequently expanded the company to 18 facilities and took the company public. In 1995, the firm was purchased.
Currently, Mr. Wilson is CEO of the Monterey Peninsula Surgery Centers which operates five facilities in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. MPSC has partnered with two local hospitals and 90 surgeons and has become one of the largest locally owned independent surgical services organizations in California.

Mr. Wilson is a past president of Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, the California Ambulatory Surgery Association and is Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones’s appointee to the California Insurance Guarantee Association Board of Governors. Mr. Wilson initiated his first Bundled Payment Agreement with Blue Shield of California for micro-discectomy in 2001 and added total joint replacements in 2007. In 2009, Blue Shield of California asked him and his partner, Scott Leggett, to develop a narrow network of ASCs in California that would bundle major cases moving them from the inpatient to ASC setting.
