Position: Senior vice president of clinical effectiveness and chief quality officer, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center

Key role: Provide strategic and operational leadership to Englewood Hospital's quality and safety efforts to ensure the medical center remains a national leader in clinical care areas.

Goals: Ensure we continue to meet and exceed the needs of the community we serve. Position Englewood Hospital for continued success in providing exceptional care at lower costs.

Previous jobs: I have been fortunate to spend my entire career at Englewood Hospital. I began as a unit secretary while in college for my nursing degree. I have held various positions, from staff nurse to director to vice president. Areas of strategic leadership have included the emergency department, case management, education research, quality and safety.

Key strengths: Passion about the care we provide, relationship building and teamwork, systems thinking, problem solving, and a can-do attitude.

Career high: My promotion to this position after working over the past several years in pursuit of national recognition for medical excellence and the care provided by Englewood's team.

Next: The current transition from a transaction-based health care system (pay for service) to a value-based system (pay for quality) is a very exciting time for the industry. I believe it will lead to market differentiation for Englewood Hospital as the most desirable provider of care at lower costs. The new health care landscape provides the ideal environment to partner with payers and employers to innovate in the delivery of care and benefit design.

Challenges: The rate of change and the complexities of change in the health care industry call for the need to innovate rapidly while the margins for nonprofit hospitals remain relatively slim.

After hours: Spending time with my husband, daughter and family; traveling; swimming.
