As the President and CEO of Arnprior Regional Health, I am pleased to launch my first blog. I have been contemplating this move into social media for some time. The health care environment is now in a constant state of change, creating an unprecedented number of people asking “Why? Why are we embarking on this direction? Why do we need to change? Why, why?”
I hope to utilize this blog as a place to provide some insight into “Why Arnprior Regional Health is changing.”
The second objective of the blog is to provide an opportunity to recognize the achievements our team has made with respect to our vision of being recognized for exemplary care. At Arnprior Regional Health we have over 300 staff, 200 physicians and 200 volunteers who make our organization a great place to work, volunteer and receive care.
The last objective of the blog is to provide an opportunity to inform you of issues and to provide opportunities where we will seek your input. At ARH we live by four values – Honesty, Accountability, Respect and Teamwork. This form of communication is one vehicle I believe will strengthen the practice of our values.
I invite you to join me on this journey of cyberspace communication. I hope you will let me know what you think about the topics we post and offer your input into the questions we ask you to consider.
Until next time,
