I had a nice surprise the other day. I received the attached links to an interview from my good friend, Lou Shapiro, who is the President and CEO for the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in NYC. Lou was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business on changes in health care and how HSS is handling such changes. They also discussed health care innovations, Obamacare, mergers and acquisitions and the technology evolution.
I told Lou that I was disappointed that he didn't do a shoutout to his good friend in western Maryland. He quickly responded with that he was a little nervous being on live TV and simply forgot. The interview was very well done and the success that Lou has experienced is so well deserved. He is a bright, tireless professional who has brought HSS to the position as the number one ranked orthopedic hospital / program in the United States. Lou and his wife, Mary Lee, would pretty much give the proverbial shirts off of their backs to anyone in need. They are a delightful couple who truly get the responsibility that comes with Lou's position and their status in New York City. Congratulations!
