To Dream the Impossible Dream

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

"The Impossible Dream" from the play "Man of La Mancha"
The transformation has arrived: welcome Physician Leaders one and all! We are health care's future!

Our overriding mantra: "Patients first."

We are about quality. We are about safety. We are about patient satisfaction. We are about leadership, mentorship, inspiration. We are about the feel-good. These principles are how successful companies succeed.  We are a team.

There is no use in resisting the transformation. It is here.

It is us.

So smile. Pitch in. Make it our own. Invest in the future. Teach. Research. Educate. Take call. Produce.

And enjoy the meetings, the flip charts, the consultants, the checklists.

All of them.

So much to do, so little time.  There are difficult times ahead, but we can make it work when others can't because we're the new generation of Leaders.  We know medicine.  We get input.  We involve the staff.  We'll make the tough choices.  We keep it upbeat.  Always upbeat.

March on, dear Leader!

This is our future, our patients' future.

Now, get back to work, will you?   And don't forget the meeting at 7 am.

You rock. 

See you then!

Oh, and say "hi" to your kids for me.
