About This Blog
Who is the intended audience?
All St. Luke’s employees, physicians, board members, communities, and friends, including our donors.
Why am I doing this?
I have been looking for more ways to reach our physicians and employees. I thought that the blog could be a way to reach people that I might otherwise miss through other communication venues.
Also, I have reviewed our employee survey results and am aware that employees want to know more about senior leadership’s vision and strategy. This is particularly important at a time when we are going through unprecedented change.
Finally, we are working to provide even greater transparency to the public. After all, the community owns us. While not everyone will agree with everything I write in this blog, I hope that everyone will appreciate this and other attempts we are making toward that end.
What will I be writing about?
Primarily, this blog will chronicle the St. Luke’s Health System’s journey to transform health care. I will also explain our strategy and the philosophy behind it, and use this blog to communicate news from around the System. And for perspective, I will occasionally comment on current affairs and public policy.
When will I add new material?
I plan to add a new post at least every two weeks. As news breaks, we will tweet that a new post has been made, so be sure to follow me on Twitter @drpatestlukes and if you want your friends, colleagues, and family to know what we are up to, be sure to “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/stlukesidaho.
