New CEO retains commitment to quality, cost effectiveness, and best outcomes
“Providing high-quality services with the most cost-effective approach and the best outcomes for our patients.”
That’s my mantra and our continued vision as an organization as I begin my tenure as OrthoIllinois’ new CEO.
Even before I joined OrthoIllinois as Chief Strategy Officer in the fall of 2020, I was impressed with this organization, the quality it provided to patients and the passion the physicians and the entire staff demonstrated for those we serve.
In my previous role at OrthoIllinois, I provided oversight in a variety of ways. From our value-based care initiatives to the work of our physician assistants to our new surgery center projects, overseeing these areas prepared me to be the catalyst to move our organization forward and help our teams truly impact and improve healthcare in our region.
We recognize that a high-quality subspecialty can make a significant difference in a person’s quality of life. We also understand that healthcare debt is real and is a burden for individuals. Our goal is to address these issues with a focus on the combined approach of providing excellent, affordable service for impactful healthcare outcomes. Our goal is to get our patients back to enjoying life.
By offering our services through our own independent practices and expanding our services into the hometowns of the patients who turn to us for help– from the full range of bone and joint care to surgery to rehabilitation – we are able to substantially impact individuals’ health and we’ve found it a much better way to deliver quality care.
Our dynamic group of physicians continue to lead the industry in advanced approaches and procedures. We serve our patients today with a ready eye on the future. Because we are at the forefront of innovative orthopedic trends, we are able to provide the communities we serve with the best quality healthcare capabilities.
And while we focus on the quality of patient care and outcomes, our management team is equally dedicated to ensuring we continue to grow and meet our patients where they are by providing robust facilities, allowing them to stay local and with the specialists they deserve. without having to maneuver through sometimes-challenging hospital systems.
We’ll continue to be good partners with our hospitals as we recognize our patients’ need different services at various stages in their lives. Our goal is to provide care beyond just bones and joints, but as importantly, care of someone’s overall health.
Our vision is to further strengthen our core and provide a more value-based approach while continuing to lead our region in the best orthopedic care with passion for the patient and a laser focus on their outcomes.
