Open Letter To The Community
By Michele Kidd Sutton, President and Chief Executive Officer
After working with North Oaks Health System in various roles over the last
28 years, I am eager and enthusiastic to step into my new role as President
and Chief Executive Officer. My pledge is to continue our organizational
values on which we have built our success: a focus on caring, compassion,
communication and commitment.
I look forward to offering open communication and collaboration with the
community, and am anxious to hear what’s important to you in terms
of wellness and health care.
In turn, I will be sharing news about North Oaks because I believe our
successes, breadth of services and quality of health care needs to be
conveyed. For example, did you know that North Oaks is in the top 3 percent
in the world for successfully helping people recover from stroke and traumatic
brain injuries? Or, that our patients rank our clinics and diagnostic
services in the top 5 percent in the nation for excellent patient satisfaction?
And that we also offer the only Level II Trauma Center in our region,
increasing the odds of survival and recovery for our patients.
My heart and soul run deep in this community, and I am committed to the
North Oaks mission: Improving lives. Every time. Every touch. With your support and that
of our employees, physicians and volunteers, North Oaks Health System
will realize its vision to be our region’s most trusted health care partner.
