By Albert S. Rohr, MD, President, Bryn Mawr Medical Staff (email@example.com)
I just have a few notes to pass on to you from our April Bryn Mawr Medical Operations Committee meeting. First, a couple things I would like your feedback on:
1. The next Bryn Mawr Medical Staff Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 22nd. Traditionally the Medical Staff Meeting has been held at 7pm and is preceded by a catered dinner available to all staff members. About a third of us show up for dinner prior to the meeting. This catered meal has a cost in the thousands, and is one of the larger bites that is taken out of our campus Medical Staff budget. I would like to take a poll and see if we would rather meet as a staff at 5pm, wrap up our business, and have more of our evening open and available to us.
2. We still have tickets available for the Phillies baseball game on Saturday, May 3rd. These tickets are available, two per physician, for free – we ask that you only take a pair of tickets if we can be sure to see you at the game. For those who would like it, there will also be a free shuttle bus running from Bryn Mawr to the stadium for those who would like to avoid the downtown parking hassle. Due to ticket availability, we have opened this event up to residents as well. Please pass the word: we would love to have a full cheering section as the Phillies take on the Washington Nationals!
For your response to both issues, please contact Brian Sherman in the Medical Staff office, either by phone (484) 337-8042 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Baseball tickets are currently available in the Medical Staff Office, and he will gather responses regarding our staff meeting time so that we can provide timely notification of when we will begin.
I’m happy to report that all Main Line Health cardiologists are now listed on the website for the Lankenau Heart Institute, allowing Bryn Mawr to be represented in the system endeavor. A similar structural reorganization is planned for oncology services across Main Line Health, incorporating the lessons learned from these experiences.
Bryn Mawr Hospital is starting to grow and change at a faster rate. Three dimensional breast tomosynthesis will be available through our radiology department starting this June. Other plans that many of us have heard about for years are finally in motion. The Clinical Decision Unit next to the Emergency Room is under construction currently, set to open by November of this year. The 933 Haverford Primary Care Center should open at around the same time. The Clothier Building and the Medical Office Building South are scheduled to be demolished by the end of this summer, clearing space for future enhancements to the main hospital.
Thanks for your attention, and I look forward to keeping you informed of our activities as a campus and in concert with Main Line Health Medical Staff Leadership.
