Description

Diverse Leadership Needed: Providing Equitable Health to a Community

As healthcare continues to evolve and organizations work towards closing gaps in health outcomes, it is imperative that organizations reflect the communities in which they serve. Diversity among the workforce needs to be the new standard and this includes resources at the leadership level. We would like to have a thoughtful conversation on the importance of diversity & inclusion among hospital organization leaders and what positive impacts that makes on the care provided to our communities. We hope that you can join us in the conversation!

Described as a “hospital without beds,” the Virtual Care Center is home to a large medical team, but no patients. Mercy Virtual Care Center is the largest single-hub electronic intensive care unit (ICU) in the nation. Doctors and nurses monitor patients’ vital signs and provide a second set of eyes to bedside caregivers in 30 ICUs across five states. Using highly sensitive two-way cameras, online-enabled instruments and real-time vital signs, clinicians “see” patients where they are. The Virtual Care Center is the first of its kind and the genesis of a national consortium of virtual providers, pioneering a new model of care. Learn more at: www.mercyvirtual.net
