Yesterday, I had the opportunity to welcome our newest employees at their orientation. There were about 45 new employees in attendance. At one point in my welcoming remarks, I ask each employee to introduce themselves and to give a perspective on how they will fulfill the Health System's mission of Superior Care For All We Serve. I was amazed at the enthusiasm of the majority of the group, especially the first work morning after losing an hour of sleep. There were great answers to the question: you heard care for; be the best; getting meds to the right patient and in the right dose; clean the patient's room to prevent infection; serve those in need and the list goes on. Our new approach to selection and on boarding of employees is working and it is confirmed after each orientation session.
