Q: What most notably stands out about your leadership style or what is an example of leadership success you can share with our readers?
HonorHealth has grown to become a complete healthcare system across a continuum of care that focuses holistically on enhancing the well-being of its patients and community with world class service.
My leadership style is situational, based on what is needed by our team and the circumstances. During the pandemic crisis, our team needed to feel my calm and confidence. During our transformation to a full healthcare system, our team needed to believe in that vision though my communication and transparency.
What impact has COVID-19 or the disruptions of the past 18 months had on you as a leader?
What surfaced through the daily grind of an Incident Command Center, bedside caregiving during surge conditions and improvisation in virtually every function of our enterprise was just how tough and dedicated our team is. We learned to appreciate the unique gifts that so many subject matter experts brought to the table and how it took all of us to have a successful collective response. And because people submitted to a purpose larger than themselves, and rallied through collaboration and coordination, we saved lives and helped patients get better, faster.
What do you feel we can be doing as a business community to empower economic growth here?
HonorHealth agreed to anchor an effort to perform the first Blue Zones assessment in Scottsdale, Arizona. Blue Zones is an initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through public policy and tactics that encourage sustainable changes to the environment.
Worksites could benefit from increased productivity, lower turnover and a potential savings in healthcare costs. Employers would have access to experts, tools and resources of proven practices, hands-on support from a local Blue Zones team and clear metrics to measure impact.
What is new and notable for your company’s near future that will impact our economy?
HonorHealth will continue to expand access to coordinated, affordable, high-quality care and an exceptional patient experience.
We expect to adopt virtual health, remote monitoring, home health and community care network solutions. And through data analytics and targeted use of artificial intelligence, we expect to be able to deliver predictive interventions and evidence-based practices through the platform of a digitally connected provider network.
