Notes from Steve

I am feeling stressed. Holiday stress from not doing a flipping thing and now less than a week left. Nothing. I have a couple of days off next week to get everything done. Angst. I usually write a letter… it’ll be a New Year’s letter this year… as for everything...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

Get Fit… Stay Fit As we embark on the future within an ACO (Accountable Care Organization), there are many unknowns. It will be an education for all of us: hospitals, patients, and providers alike. The basic premise is that we need to actively seek and be a healthier population. More...

Notes from Steve

I’m tangled up with my emotions right now. This now makes perfect sense to me, because on the news this morning a guy was saying that people are at their lowest place in life at age 50. He wasn’t on the news program specifically to show that 50 year old...

Reflections from Amy

The connection in health care to the impact we make in our patients’ lives is astounding. I attended a conference last week that focused on health care leadership, but the underlying theme was tied to our stories in health care. We all have one; that moment in time that lives...

Notes from Steve

“Then just quit,” Priscilla told me when I said I didn’t want to go to Rotary that fateful night in 1995. “What?” I replied. “If you’re not going to go without an extremely valid reason then you won’t give your 100% to the Rotary Club – and we need committed...
