Becker's Hospital Review: How Children's Mercy Kansas City is growing geographically and within service lines
By Mariah Muhammad
Rob Steele, MD, is the executive vice president and chief strategy and innovation officer at Mo-based Children's Mercy Kansas City.
Dr. Steele will serve on the panel "Pivoting Strategy Amid Reimbursement Shifts: Observations, Thoughts and How to Thrive" at Becker's 10th Annual CEO + CFO Roundtable. As part of an ongoing series, Becker's is talking to healthcare leaders who plan to speak at the conference on Nov. 7-10 in Chicago.
Becker's Healthcare aims to foster peer-to-peer conversation between healthcare's brightest leaders and thinkers. In that vein, responses to our Speaker Series are published straight from interviewees. Here is what our speakers had to say.
Question: What is the smartest thing you've done in the last year to set your system up for success?
Dr. Rob Steele: The smartest thing we've done is to stick with our strategic plan. We developed and got the approval of our strategic plan right before COVID-19 hit. So we had to reassess and decide whether we would continue, despite all the challenges we had throughout COVID-19. This past year we've been continuing to implement our strategic plan. It's modified in timing because of the challenges we've had with COVID-19, but we've stuck to it. Now two and a half years out, we're glad we did.
