What’s your vision as CEO?
As we embark on developing a three-year strategic plan focused on expanding access to care, I see three crucial goals:
Physician development. We’ll onboard primary care and specialist physicians throughout the service area, with each one representing a key access point to care.
Convenient centers of care. Adding more physical “outposts” – healthcare pavilions that offer physician care, physical therapy, and lab services – will enable more people to access care right where they live.
The basics. We’re committed to being indispensable for the basics in health care: superior quality outcomes, outstanding patient experience, and efficient, cost-effective care.
We want to deliver the highest quality care at the lowest cost in an easily accessible way.
We’re also adding more services that you may not find at other community hospitals – such as comprehensive cancer services and clinical trials – allowing our community to receive 95% of the care they need right here at home. For the other 5%, such as highly specialized cardiac surgery, we’ll connect our patients to expert providers that can best handle those cases, among them our trusted partners at Atlantic Health System.
