From the CEO’s desk

Dr. Alan MarcoThis is the first of a series of periodic updates to the Wright State Physicians employees from Alan Marco, M.D., M.M.M., president and CEO of Wright State Physicians.

It’s now been six months since I joined Wright State Physicians and it’s hard to believe how time has flown by! I’ve appreciated the warm welcome and friendliness of all the staff. Everywhere I go I’ve been greeted with a cheerful smile. While I appreciated how everyone wants me to feel at home, I think the frigid cold and snow is a little over the top just because I’m from “up north.”

We are entering an exciting new time for WSP. Renaming the office building is just the start. You may have noticed the advertisement on the marquee in front of the Nutter Center — not just the sign for the Orthopaedics Department, but Wright State Physicians up in lights. That’s all part of the new advertising campaign to help brand WSP. We’re also developing brochures and other materials as we look to grow our practice. That’s going to be the secret of our long-term success — growth. We’ll grow by offering superior patient care in a convenient, patient-focused environment on a schedule that’s good for the patients, who after all, are our customers. With all the changes going on in health care, that formula will guarantee our success and allow us not to just maintain where we are now, but to flourish.

Health care is entering a challenging phase as the Affordable Care Act becomes more fully implemented. We’re not really sure how payment reform will work, how many folks will sign up for the “exchanges” or how this will affect our patients, health care providers, or staff members. But, what we do know is that WSP will continue to be successful because of the hard work and dedication of our staff. New regulations and reporting requirements will present challenges, but our staff will easily rise to that challenge and continue to provide that high level of care and compassion for which WSP is known. These challenges will make the future interesting, but that’s what makes this job so fun. Based on the folks I’ve met so far, I’m sure that WSP’s staff will rise to the occasion and be successful.

I’m looking forward to several things. First and foremost is the end of winter and the return of warmer weather. But even more important and enticing than the warmer weather is the opportunity to work with such a great group of people as we strive to improve the health and well-being of our community. I’m grateful to be able to work with such a fine group of people as the folks at WSP.

Respectfully,

Alan Marco, M.D., M.M.M.
President and CEO, Wright State Physicians
