The changing face of healthcare
When you pick up your copy of Better Health this June, you may notice that it looks a bit different. Usually, we look at the latest advances in medical treatment, explore a common health concern or offer tips on healthy living. With this issue, we want to talk about this complicated “thing” called healthcare. We’ve engaged local experts to be part of this dialogue, as we try to get our arms around where healthcare is headed and what it will mean to the Hospital of Saint Raphael. Learn more in CEO Chris O’Connor’s column in the special June issue of Better Health.
