Harrison Launches Message from the CEO - 7/31/2012

Video program to air on harrisonmedical.org home page

Starting this month, Harrison begins a new video series, entitled Message from the CEO, to speak directly with our community about important information regarding healthcare in our local area. The purpose of this program is to create a platform from which to express our commitment to our mission, vision and the durability of exceptional health care for the greater Kitsap and North Peninsulas.

“We stand at the threshold of a myriad of changes in the American healthcare landscape,” said Scott Bosch, CEO. “It’s important to talk about how Harrison is responding to these changes so our residents know that we will continue to make a positive difference in people’s lives for many years to come.”

This first edition of the Message from the CEO discusses the Affordable Care Act and the things that Harrison is doing, right now to adapt to our new healthcare system. While the details of this important legislation will most definitely change, the premise of this important legislation is that it helps to ensure all Americans, over time.

It is a complex process and will vary from state-to-state. The major shift is to change the way healthcare is financed. For the first time, American Healthcare is moving away from an acute care focus to a preventative care emphasis.

Here at Harrison, we’ve not been sitting idly by; we’ve been active to adapt to these changes. We invite you to learn more by viewing the Message from the CEO at www.harrisonmedical.org.
