Cook County Health and Hospitals System Board Meeting - September 29, 2016
Key Board Member Resigns
Cook County Health and Hospitals System (CCHHS) Board Member Dr. Wayne Lerner submitted his resignation, with many commendations for his service by board members and by CEO Dr. Jay Shannon. As chair of the CCHHS Managed Care committee, Dr. Lerner stressed the importance of CountyCare’s focus on (1) quality care; (2) risk management; (3) improving health status: and (4) a distribution of membership between healthy and less healthy to even out cost of care.
Significant Topics Discussed:
To Watch For: With the resignations of Lewis Collens, Dr. Erika Marsh, and now Dr. Wayne Lerner, the CCHHS Board has lost expertise that has guided the board through the formative years of CountyCare and a challenging strategic planning process yielding a 3-year plan for the organization. Can the new board members master the complicated workings of CCHHS and move the organization forward to achieve the aggressive goals laid out in the Strategic Plan? Stay tuned.
