In an effort to help others in the community understand the operations and financials of the hospital, Dave suggested a new financial reporting delivery to the Board that was easier to understand. Dave’s leadership was instrumental in conducting a community health needs assessment and the enormous task of updating the hospital’s strategic plan.
