Outreach efforts to further expand Children’s Mercy’s unique expertise throughout the region, improved access allowing us to see patients in a timely manner, plus total commitment to quality and safety are the most important areas of focus for the hospital in the coming year, Charles Roberts, MD, Executive Vice President/Executive Medical Director, tells Jason in this week’s podcast. Outreach to communities, such as our facilities in Wichita and St. Joseph, will provide the “critical mass of specialists and patients to be the great hospital we want to be,” Dr. Roberts says. Outreach is part of overall improved access, which is critical because seeing patients in a timely fashion is part of meeting the needs of the region. In addition, heightened awareness of Quality and Safety is the most important cultural change for every employee to embrace. Listen to Dr. Roberts and Jason expand on these key points in their discussion. (Time: 10 minutes)
