Course DescriptionJoin the Regional Education Leadership Collaborative as we host our next discussion featuring Eric Fletcher, the Senior VP and Chief Strategy Officer of Mary Washington Healthcare. Much like the school divisions and other industries in the Spring of 2020, the hospital suspended some of its operations in response to the growing threat of the pandemic. The nearly immediate financial impact and the long-term impact on patient care created a need for careful and broadscale planning to develop an approach for operating in the new normal amidst COVID-19. Our discussion will focus on the hospital’s approach to organizing and messaging to create a safe environment that would encourage patients and families to come back into the hospital setting for care. We know building leaders will face a big and similar challenge in bringing students, teachers, and staff back into the school setting this summer and into the fall. This conversation will also serve as a backdrop for breakout discussions with your colleagues as you think about the challenges you articulated in our first convening.
Join us for the meeting of the UMW Regional Education Leadership Collaborative hosted by Dr. Pete Kelly, Dean, College of Education and Kimberly Young, Executive Director of Continuing & Professional Studies at the University of Mary Washington.
