You’re in the right place, it’s just that Dr. Pate’s Prescription for Change is under construction!
We’ve needed to update the software we’ve used for the blog to keep up with changes to the platform and to meet security standards and requirements.
This look is temporary; we are designing a comprehensive refresh of St. Luke’s digital presence, including my blog, and you should expect to see an easy and much more enjoyable experience across all of our Internet platforms this summer.
That said, I fully intend to continue to chronicle our transformation, successes, and challenges, what I see on the national scene, and what the great St. Luke’s team is doing with, and in support of, our patients and their families. New year, new blog look, same commitment. Thank you for joining the journey!
David C. Pate, M.D., J.D., is president and CEO of St. Luke's Health System, based in Boise, Idaho. Dr. Pate joined the System in 2009. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and his law degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
The most valuable thing we have is our health. And the most valuable thing St. Luke's can do is help you live as healthy a life as possible. We're taking care forward as we develop new ways—and refine the tried and true—to improve health, improve care, and lower costs.
