YPO at MedStar

Last week MedStar Health hosted the YPO (Young Presidents' Organization) from the Washington DC area. The YPO was founded in 1950 and has grown to unite 20,000 business leaders in more than 120 countries around a shared mission of 'Better Leaders Through Education and Idea Exchange' (more information at www.ypo.org).

During their visit, the young presidents learned about MedStar Health key initiatives such as population health and our focus on quality and safety. Besides hearing cutting edge talks on cardiac and orthopedic surgery, oncology and neurosciences, they toured MWHC. During that tour, they  learn about our trauma services (see picture to the left at the MedStar helicopter) and got first hand experience with the 'da Vinci' surgical robot (don't worry, it was just a demo version)!

It was great to see how these business leaders from across Washington were impressed by the dept and breadth of medical care we provide and how research, education and innovation help drive our ability to advance health.
