Board Member Immersion Day

A few years ago, I had heard about an immersion program for elected officials and board members at Mission Health.  The basic concept is to spend a concentrated period of time on the front lines of healthcare to understand the immense complexity, challenges and joy of working in healthcare.  Thanks to Matt Lang, Vito Buccellato and other members of our team for orchestrating several Immersion Days for our foundation board members.  This is connected to at least two of our beliefs: creative and collaborative.  Pictured above is board member Jeremy Kokes with our medical director from the ED, Dr. Brad Pulver.
