I began my healthcare career in 1971 and have served in a variety of roles. I have managed and operated commercial clinical laboratories, managed joint-venture hospital laboratories, served as project manager and medical equipment planner for replacement hospitals, greenfield facilities, renovations and expansions covering all clinical disciplines. My project management experience includes clinical operational reviews, budgeting, medical equipment planning, procurement, transitioning, and coordination during construction. During this time, I also spent several years as a production manager for a manufacturing facility. This wide-ranging background enables me to take a comprehensive and analytical approach to medical equipment planning to better understand how each component impacts the operational objectives of the facility.
During design and planning, my focus is on clinical operations and budgeting. The ultimate success of a facility depends on these two pieces being aligned with each other, with the future plans for the facility, and with the ultimate project vision.
