World Class:

A Story of Adversity, Transformation,

and Success at NYU Langone Health

 

This event has been postponed.

We are in the process of rescheduling,

and will apprise you as soon as we have a new date in the Fall 2019.

 

 

 

  

 

Please join us at Roosevelt House to welcome Dr. William A. Haseltine, renowned scientist, entrepreneur, healthcare expert, and the author of World Class: A Story of Adversity, Transformation, and Success at NYU Langone Health.

 

World Class offers an inside view into the remarkable turnaround of an underperforming medical center in New York City into a world class institution. Ten years ago, NYU Langone Health was losing tens of millions of dollars and ranked in the bottom third of academic medical center hospitals for quality and safety. Today, the medical center delivers world class patient care and generates a substantial surplus.

 

How did NYU Langone ascend from mediocrity to a world class leader that today delivers clinical excellence, outstanding safety performance, and total patient satisfaction – all while generating a substantial financial surplus?

Dr. Haseltine will explore the answer to this question and highlight universal lessons for policymakers and leaders in all fields to emulate.
