Today is my first day as President and Chief Executive Officer of Carolinas HealthCare System.
I’m excited to not only be a part of a great organization, but also becoming a new resident of Charlotte and the Carolinas. I’m looking forward to meeting to the people who make the organization and the community so unique.
In the coming weeks and months, I plan to spend most of my time visiting hospitals, doctor’s practices and other locations across the Carolinas so I can learn what makes the people of our community special, as well as giving people an opportunity to get to know me.
Through my travels, I will be sharing my thoughts and impressions here as well as on Twitter. I hope this allows you to see our community through fresh eyes, and perhaps even learn a few new things along the way. If you have any tips, recommendations or questions for me, I’d love to hear them. Send me a note.
Since my first week here coincides with National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week, let me also extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our wonderful nurses, clinicians, and support teams who make such an extraordinary difference in the lives of patients every single day.
See you soon,
