Guest: Dr. Frank Byrne, President, St. Mary's Hospital

Recently named one of the 50 Most Influential Physician Executives in Healthcare by Modern Physician and Modern Healthcare magazines, Dr. Frank Byrne shares his views on the challenges health care leaders face today, and how St. Mary's Hospital fits into our community health care environment. Acknowledging our current system is unsustainable, Dr. Byrne discusses how St. Mary's Hospital is moving forward with initiatives that support their patient-centered care philosophy in this era of health care reform.

Of particular pride to Frank Byrne and St. Mary's Hospital is the expected opening in 2012 of the first in Wisconsin in-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Room. Building up to the opening are community events and the need for volunteers. Hear the latest news on this project and more in this insightful conversation with Dr. Frank Byrne.
