Accretive Health Services has hired former Dell Services executive Stephen Schuckenbrock to replace longtime Chief Executive Officer Mary Tolan, the Star Tribune reports. Tolan, the company's co-founder, will serve as chairwoman of the board.

Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson went head-to-head with the Chicago-based firm last year over its controversial debt-collection tactics at Fairview Health Services in Minneapolis.

Patients and their relatives claimed they were abused and harrassed by debt collectors from Accretive while waiting for treatment.

Accretive denied any wrongdoing, but agreed not to operate in Minnesota for at least two years and paid $2.5 to settle the lawsuit.

Last May, Fairview's board of directors announced it would not renew its contract then-CEO Mark Eustic, who was responsible for hiring Accretive.
