Anthony “Tony” Esposito, the new CEO at Crozer Health, says finding the staffing it needs will stabilize operations at Crozer Health and bring back services which were suspended because of employee shortages, writes Kathleen E. Carey for the Daily Times.
Esposito was named CEO earlier in July. He takes over just as the health system is in talks to have the non-profit ChristianaCare acquire Crozer Health.
Esposito said a recruitment and retention task force has been created with physicians, human resources personnel and employees to figure out how to attract and retain workers.
With healthcare shifting to more outpatient services, he would like to look at how Crozer Health could provide those services to the community and how to provide access.
He emphasized there are “no plans at all right now to close Delaware County” [Memorial Hospital].
“What I would like to do from now to whenever we do the transition with ChristianaCare … figure out our service lines, get back to the basics and really understand where we need access points for our patients.”
One way to do that will be to include physician expertise when decisions about services are made.
