José R. Sánchez, President and CEO of Norwegian American Hospital, was recently appointed part of the Governor Elect‘s Healthcare Committee. As a member of J.B. Pritzker’s transition team, Mr. Sánchez will play a key role in making strategic recommendations for policies that will address the needs for health care services across the state. These recommendations will span across all sectors of health care, including:
• Services for children and adults
• Creating a patient-centered model of care
• Integrating substance abuse and mental health to patient screenings
Without a doubt, Mr. Sánchez’s expertise and extensive experience in leading healthcare organizations will help further advance the agenda for hospitals in Illinois in their quest for clinical excellence.
