  1. Sad to hear President Van Bree is leaving her post at Hasbro and RI Hospitals. No doubt a result of the poor financial performance of the hospitals which can be traced in large part to forces beyond her control. Solutions to difficult challenges in healthcare are not readily available and present as systemic and situational. Both aspects will require rigorous analysis and applicable expertise to tease out the right combinations of solutions as there is no single change to solve this revenue/cost dilemma.

    In closing, I will share that the quality of care provided by the physicians, nurses and staff at RI Hospital is second to none. Over the past 7 days I have witnessed the amazing expertise of the Emergency Intensive Care and subsequently the Coronary Care team; their medical practice; their proactive communication to patient and family; the team dynamic across the practice were all exemplary – truly benchmark. Congratulations to President Van Bree and all of the folks at RI Hospital whose commitment to excellence across their respective disciplines provides RIers with world class care.
