“Building an Advanced Leadership Academy” with Henry Ford Health System’s Kathy Oswald and Bob Riney

In the first of two releases today from NCHL’s Human Capital Investment Conference this past November, Kathy Oswald and Bob Riney discuss their successful talent management, succession planning, and physician development programs. From Henry Ford Health System, Bob Riney, President and COO, and Kathy Oswald, Senior Vice President and CHRO, outline their organization’s leadership development model including their Advanced Leadership Academy and Physician Leadership Institute programs.

HFHS’s goal is to create a new, high-value model for healthcare delivery. By creating a series of stepped leadership academies, HFHS is helping executives, managers, and physicians to think and act acknowledge a system-perspective instead of a solely departmental view. Through this extensive program, the system drove high performance through its leaders, both physician and administrative, increased employee and customer engagement, and improved quality and financial outcomes. HFHS received a National Malcolm Baldrige Award and the system’s leadership development was cited as an organizational strength. Watch Bob and Kathy’s full presentation is below.

How can hospitals and health systems learn from this work? Who is the ultimate benefactor of better leadership in healthcare?

Kathy Oswald is also the Chair of NCHL’s Mergers and Acquisitions LENSTM Council.
