To improve community health, choose mission over money

Dwight D. Eisenhower once said: “The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army or in an office.”

Recently a good friend of mine told me a story about identifying the perfect job in healthcare administration, one that aligned with both his head and heart and would allow him to fulfill his personal and professional goals.

The position–Executive director of a physician hospital organization (PHO).

When he read the organization and position description, he was thrilled to see the overall aim for the organization and the person in this role was to improve the health of the community. “An organization that truly gets it. An organization that is living its mission and creating a structure which allows for its vision to become a reality.” He was so excited.
