As the health care field continues to undergo significant change in its business and care models, it’s clear there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to facing the future. Communities of different sizes have different needs. Scale is important, and that’s where health systems have much to offer. On this Leadership Dialogue Series podcast, AHA Board Chair Wright L. Lassiter III is joined by Eugene Woods, president and CEO of Atrium Health, based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Gene is also a former chair of the AHA Board of Trustees.
Wright and Gene talk about the role of health systems within the U.S. health care system today, and how the scale they offer can benefit communities and foster innovation. And in this time of significant financial and workforce challenges facing hospitals and health systems, the two health care leaders discuss the impact of these challenges and how Atrium Health is addressing them. Gene also shares examples of how Atrium Health teams continue to explore innovation and partnerships across different sectors.
