Employee meetings tomorrow

Since the poster appeared last week, several have asked me,"What's the big announcement?"

No big announcement -- just a progress report on the journey Community General and Upstate University Hospitals are making to become a combined hospital.

This round of meetings gives employees the opportunity to meet Dr. John McCabe, the President and CEO of University Hospital, and to hear him discuss our progress.

NOTE: Because of a conflict, Dr. McCabe will not be able to attend the 2 p.m. meeting, as planned. The other meetings will proceed as scheduled.

Dr. McCabe was appointed President & CEO at University Hospital and Senior Vice President for Hospital Affairs at Upstate Medical University in August 2009. He has been at Upstate for more than two decades and developed its Emergency Medicine residency training program. Dr. McCabe served as Dean at Upstate Medical University for six years in the 1990s. His national leadership positions include serving as Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Medical Specialties, the organization that oversees the certification of physician specialists in the United States.

Dr. McCabe has served as editor of the journal, Resuscitation. He is a Past President of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He has served as a member of the American Board of Emergency Medicine since 1996 and is on its Board of Directors.

Dr. McCabe attended medical school at the SUNY Upstate Medical University, completed his internship at the Charles F. Kettering Medical Center in Kettering, Ohio, completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.

For those who cannot attend the meetings, I will provide a recap in several days.
