DCH CEO discusses hospital improvements

DCH Health System President and CEO Katrina Keefer was the guest speaker for the Chamber of Commerce Women’s Leadership Alliance lunch and learn on Thursday. 

During her discussion with the group, Keefer talked about the intersection of business and health care and how the hospital is improving its financial position. 

She also shared how DCH is working to improve wait times in the emergency room. 

“We have partnered with our physicians and nurses,” Keefer said. “We have increased our staffing in the emergency room. We have also put together a little fast track that runs consistently from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and then we are also working with community partners about how to get our patients seen outside of the emergency room.”

 Keefer also said there have been some changes to DCH’s leadership team, and the system has a new chief nursing officer and chief operating officer.
