Alex Sommers, MD

CEO / Founder

Alex is the CEO and Founder of Astia Health, Inc®.  He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1995 with a degree in Biology.  Upon completing his medical education and residency training at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Affiliated Hospitals in 1999 and 2002, Alex became Board Certified in Emergency Medicine in 2002.  During his first two Attending Emergency Department positions, he established two Emergency Medicine point of care ultrasound programs.  Alex has served on many committees during his clinical career, including the Medical Executive Committee and Bylaws at Wausau Hospital. Additionally, he was awarded the Red Cross Community Hero Award.  Alex established Wausau’s first medical helicopter service, serving as Medevac’s Medical Director of ground and aeromedicine.  He has dedicated nearly 15 years of his life to practicing emergency medicine and training critical care EMS providers throughout several Wisconsin communities.

Deeply rooted in family and community, Alex believes in the core values of faith, family and integrity.  His career path was altered by his desire to disrupt the current delivery of health care services, with the goal of providing a patient-centered health care experience that is both convenient and affordable.  He enjoys giving back to his community and is involved with St. Mary’s Catholic Church where his children attend school.  In his spare time, Alex enjoys watching movies and relaxing around the fire with his beautiful wife, Lisa and two sons, Nicholas and Jacob.  And of course, cheering for the Packers!

“Consolidating treasured professional relationships utilizing evolving affordable technology to foster healthier communities seemed like a logical next step in my medical career.  Understanding, an ounce of prevention could deliver many pounds of cures inspired us to reinvent the wheel.  Incremental and sustainable changes in a patient’s health is achievable through our mechanism of delivery.  Convenient, affordable and mobile proactive health care is a logical successor to what currently exists.”
