McGinty told HealthManagement, "My role
as Chief Strategy Officer for the Weill Cornell Medicine Physician Organization
reflects a recognition that even as we continue to deliver world class care to
our patients that we need to grow in a purposeful way. Our strategic planning
process must identify our particular strengths in order to build on them, tease
out opportunities for improvement so that we can develop our people and
processes more effectively and communicate a clear message internally and to
our community about who we are and what’s important at Weill Cornell. Our
external environment is competitive and dynamic. From the uncertainty currently
surrounding the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid to the promise of precision medicine
we will constantly need to adapt and evolve. Having a clear set of strategic
goals will enable us to meet these challenges and continue to offer our
patients the very best care."
