rachelleMy guest for episode #164 is Rachelle Schultz, CEO of Winona Health (based in Winona, Minnesota). Rachelle was a part of the CEO panel that I moderated at last year's Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit and her comments on leading a health system's Lean transformation were well received. In this discussion, she says, “Everything I do has to drive Lean,” as we talk about how her system is using Lean in these challenging times and what the impact has been – quality, satisfaction, financial.

    Great job! I just attended a C-Suite breakout session last week at a Lehigh Valley Health Network Gemba Visit. These are the exact issues on the mind of the executives in the room. I will be sharing a link of this podcast with the group. Thanks so much.
