"This program improves our construction and maintenance performance and fosters collaboration amongst the teams, provides the documentation to have confidence in our continuous compliance, and maintains budget neutrality when we account for the significant costs avoided in having to address corrective actions after occupancy. This program is a home runrun for patients, employees, first responders and BWH" said Stephen Dempsey, Director of Facilities Planning and Construction at Partners HealthCare, the umbrella organization for BWH, in a release

"Michigan hospitals have a long-standing commitment to building healthier communities as evidenced by their voluntary efforts to implement smoke-free hospital campuses, eliminate industrial trans fats and adopt healthy eating practices. The MHA is proud to expand these efforts by supporting the Healthier Hospitals Initiative to improve environmental health and sustainability in Michigan and throughout the nation. We are pleased to have reached a milestone of 50 Michigan hospitals enrolled in the HHI. We look forward to further successes as our hospitals are among the national leaders whose strengths and insights will shape the new American healthcare system" said Steven Johnson, senior director of operations at the MHA
The opening paragraph states, "Despite wondrous advances in medicine and technology, healthcare regularly fails at the fundamental job of any business: to reliably deliver what its customers need. In the face of ever-increasing complexity, the hard work and best intentions of individual physicians can no longer guarantee efficient, high-quality care. Fixing healthcare will require a radical transformation, moving from a system organized around individual physicians to a team-based approach focused on patients. And yet, many physicians are deeply anxious about the changes under way and are mourning real or anticipated losses of autonomy, respect and income.” "
