Biggest challenge: “My father was an exceptional businessman and he taught us that there are no obstacles. We learned to view a business challenge as a puzzle and look for the pieces that appropriately fit together to complete our business strategy and implement our tactics.”

Advice to offer: “Never lose your passion for the children and families to whom your associates and doctors provide care. Your staff are the most important asset you have. Be available to them, encourage them and thank them for all they do.”
