— George Ting, MD
I am totally committed to the long-term success of the Hospital, and to keep it vibrant and independent for the community for generations to come. As I approach retirement, I still have concerns about El Camino Hospital's physician partnering strategy. I want to resolve problems I was not been able to as a Medical Staff member, but believe I will be able to as a Board member.
El Camino Hospital is highly regarded and currently doing well clinically and financially. It is doing many things right which I will continue and build upon. We need to keep innovating, to provide the best and latest evidence-based medicine, and relentlessly manage costs. We need to seek the right strategic partners to ensure future success El Camino Hospital is highly regarded and currently doing well clinically and financially. It is doing many things right which I will continue and build upon. I believe ECH needs to re-evaluate its physician partnering strategy which has flaws and may not produce desired results.
Your Healthcare Board Director
→ Should be uniquely familiar with El Camino Hospital's history, strengths and weaknesses
→ Have personal, in depth understanding of the clinical challenges faced by doctors and nurses every day, and how to improve care in big and in small ways
→ Should understand the complexity of the broader U.S. healthcare problems, and how to guide El Camino Healthcare to prepare for coming changes.
→ Should pledge to work hard for ECH success every day, especially keeping ECH independent and only accountable to the District residents, not outside organizations with their own interests.
I ask you to consider: who could be more concerned, committed to its future, and aware of its problems than someone working at El Camino Hospital continuously for 40 years, and has been fully engaged in its internal affairs?
