We’ll Miss you John

Sadly, I was informed that a Humphrey’s regular, John Seay, passed away suddenly. Rest in peace, John.

From SLU’s website:

John Seay, 1956-2010

ST. LOUIS — John Seay, executive director of SLUCare’s Practice Management Operations, died unexpectedly on Sunday, Dec.12. He was 54.

Seay served on the SLUCare administrative team since 2001. He was responsible for the revenue cycle of the University Medical Group and was instrumental in laying the groundwork for SLUCare’s electronic health record project.

He had been part of the Saint Louis University family earlier, as associate director of Physician Billing Services at Saint Louis University Hospital from 1990 to 1992.

“John was a hard and diligent worker who brought out the best in his employees by encouraging them to take initiative in accomplishing their job,” said Kathleen Becker, SLUCare’s chief executive officer.

“He will be greatly missed by his colleagues. His family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers.”

Debi Pratt, manager of PMO administration, had worked with Seay as his assistant for 20 years.

“John was a really quiet person who was committed to other people. He did things with purpose and never wanted the light shining on him. He was really proud of our department of 150 staff members and cared about each and every staff member,” Pratt said.

She added that Seay empowered his colleagues to make decisions.

“He was one of the main reasons why our department is what it is today. He held everyone accountable and wasn’t a micromanager. He hired people who he knew could get the job done and let them do their job.”

Mike Meyer, associate dean for finance and administration at the School of Medicine, said Seay was a huge college sports fan and dedicated employee. He set high expectations and gave people the resources to accomplish the job, Meyer said.

“John was very kind. If someone needed a favor, John would do all he could for them. He was also very generous with the organizations that he felt strongly about,” Meyer said. “He was a good, good man.”

Seay is survived by his parents Wesley and Wynema Seay of Mexico, Mo., and three brothers and a
