Message from leadership: Dr. John Marymont and Owen Bailey
Today we are launching USA Health Insider. Its genesis comes from what you told us through the employee engagement survey you participated in last fall – you want more information, especially information that helps you in your efforts to carry out the mission of USA Health.
Any of you who have seen our marketing effort know that all of us at USA Health work at Transforming Medicine every day. And that includes how we go about our jobs, including communicating.
Today we are launching USA Health Insider. Its genesis comes from what you told us through the employee engagement survey you participated in last fall – you want more information, especially information that helps you in your efforts to carry out the mission of USA Health – helping people lead longer, better lives. This electronic newsletter will be in your email inbox on a weekly basis.
All of us at USA Health have the honor of working at the region’s only academic medical center. We are among the 154 allopathic schools of medicine in the United States, which are the drivers of innovation in our healthcare system through teaching the next generation of physicians, biological research and translating that research into enhanced clinical care. In other words, we transform medicine. And each of you has a role in that effort.
As an organization, we are becoming more aggressive in telling our story. We look forward to telling people how we look at things differently so that we can develop novel approaches to address healthcare issues. This is the impetus for the changes you have seen throughout the health system recently and that you will help implement in the future. We will be the innovators of our region, providing the highest level of care in an environment of safety and quality that is unsurpassed by any other organization in the region.
This communication vehicle will serve as one of our primary mechanisms for reaching you with information that you will need to carry forward the continuing changes we are making. But it also will be one of our ways to highlight the tremendous work you accomplish daily. And we encourage you to share your stories with us so that we can spread the word further. If you have a story idea, please reach out to Carol McPhail, CMcPhail@health.southalabama.edu, of our Marketing and Communications Department and let her know what’s happening.
Finally, thank you for all that you do each day to make USA Health a special place to be.
Dr. John V. Marymont
Vice president for medical affairs and dean of the College of Medicine
Chief executive officer and senior associate vice president for medical affairs
