Henry Ford Hospital CEO advocates healthcare reform

St. Clair Shores Patch, June 30, 2011

With no end in sight for the controversy over health care reform, Macomb County health care providers are engaging with each other in an effort to educate citizens on what reform truly means for them. "There is so much controversy going on now with this act and the repealing that's trying to be attempted and elements of it trying to be picked apart ... it's going to be very interesting to really understand and predict what's going to happen in 2014 when all of this comes about," said Henry Ford Hospital CEO Barbara Rossmann. Rossmann helped break down the 1,000-page health care reform act for various Macomb County business leaders and health care providers who gathered Wednesday at Baker College for the Leadership Macomb seminar. "Whether we agree with the contents of the bill and how it's being orchestrated or not, the intention is the right one," Rossmann said. "It's moving us toward continuity of care managed through primary care physicians."
