I am grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with staff, patients, and our partners to improve our processes and enhance the patient and provider experience. As a healthcare leader I am committed to lifelong learning, coaching to build organizational leadership capacity, and building relationships for interdisciplinary collaboration. Through this learning and improvement work, together we continue to raise the bar and achieve exceptional, high quality, safe service delivery.
