Additionally, he led the establishment and implementation of Nebraska Medicine’s integrated health system strategic planning process, which formalized service line strategies for Cancer, Neurosciences, Heart & Vascular, Orthopedics, Transplant, Women’s Health, Behavioral Health and Primary Care. These service line strategies catalyzed performance improvement across quality, safety and patient experience domains resulting in market share growth for the health system.
