2017 January Presenter

Teri de Matas,

Vice President, Marketing and Community Relations at Indiana University Health

Teri spoke of the goals for the new hospital to be patient-centric, cost effective, an excellent trainer of future clinicians, a leading-edge research facility, giving the right care at the right place at the right time and having good access to therapists/doctors.

Large gatherings of 150 people from many different fields and positions have studied, in detail, how all of the components will flow together.

Coming next are external renderings, more information on interiors and on the model of care work, the website launch and information on the groundbreaking date.

The hospital will be ready to deal with any changes in Obamacare.  They also hope to have a gerontologist!

The parking plan and specific safety designs are still to be determined.  Teri will speak to us again when more information is available.

Teri gave an informative and interesting presentation that was enjoyed by the attendees!

Thank you to everyone that attended, we had 60 attendees this month, see you February 16!
