Q: What’s your most impactful story whether i.e. patient, role model, inspirational, or educational related?
A:
About 7 years ago, we decided hit the reset button in our Internal Medicine Division.  We deconstructed every aspect of our operation and challenged each other to understand and improve our patients’ journey through the healthcare system.  We defined our patient mission, and engaged and empowered all of our staff members to be active participants in the process of improvement.  I was most inspired by how dedicated they are to this process and how they continue to be leaders not just in our division but also across our organization.
