My Top 3 Priorities

  • Redefining healthcare. The Covid-19 Pandemic will transform the practice of medicine. The evolution of healthcare that is beginning now will be defined by those healthcare workers currently on the front lines of the fight against Covid-19.
  • Improving Emergency Department overcrowding. Timely and early discharges and streamlined throughput improve overcrowding.
  • Increasing access to community clinics. Nearly half of all patients in the Emergency Department could be seen initially in the community clinics.
