Words from the Summit: St. Luke's is 'well on the way'

By Dr. David C. Pate, Health and Wellness
February 24, 2014

We held our annual St. Luke's Health System Summit this past Friday and Saturday. It was fantastic to get together with 250 highly dedicated board members, leaders, and physicians from all around our service area to talk about the direction of our System.

This year, the theme was population health. The passion for fixing what is wrong with health care from all our stakeholders was palpable, and our speakers were enlightening and inspiring.
