Welcoming a Great New Leader

Last week, I was happy to welcome Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski and members of his team for our Lean Daily Management walk and an opportunity to meet with our staff and volunteers.

Mr. Olszewski was impressed with our focus on standard work and continuous performance improvement along with our core competency of redesigning care. During our walk, he learned about many improvement initiatives throughout the hospital. The County Executive is early in his first term in office and said that he and his team would take the learning from Lean Daily Management and adapt the concepts to their management of Baltimore County.

I told Mr. Olszewski that the GBMC team will work alongside him to make Baltimore County an even better place to live and work. He is a bright, young leader, but he cannot do the job alone. The entire community needs to get engaged to fix the problems and build on Baltimore County’s strengths. We are so grateful to the County Executive for caring and taking time from his very busy schedule to come and see how we are moving towards our vision.

On behalf of the entire GBMC family, I want to extend best wishes for a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season for those celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa. Enjoy your time with family members and think about the things that are important in your lives. For those staff members working during the holidays, a special “thank you” for taking care of those who can’t be at home during the holiday season. I will see many of you on LDM on Christmas Day.  I am so lucky to be associated with my GBMC colleagues and I am very grateful for all of you. Happy Holidays to everyone!
