Provider Council

Message from Our Provider Council Chair

The Provider Council was developed as part of the process to simplify our former governance model and bring together different provider groups to work on Health System initiatives As One. The Provider Council is a forum for clinicians to have a leadership role in the development and execution of Health System strategy and goals. Through our various workgroups, we aim to maintain provider input in all major clinical decisions, promote alignment of medical staff towards a common purpose and accelerate our Health System’s response to business and clinical forces.

As Provider Council Chair, I invite you to contact me any time with your feedback, questions and ideas on how the Council could best serve you.

Luke O’Connell, MD
Provider Council Chair
