Former Parkland CEO wants to write Rx for Dallas County
Dr. Ron Anderson spent 29 years as CEO of Parkland Hospital. Now, he wants to create a new collaborative effort to keep people healthy and out of hospitals. Anderson wants to create the Dallas County Community Health Institute. He calls it a move from traditional healthcare to public health. "I think that's where reform in the nation has failed," Anderson said. "Because it's not really paid attention to things we can prevent. That's the cheapest. Prevention is always better than a cure. That was said in the 15th century, and I believe that. And so that's what I'd like to spend some time doing."
