Dear Mike: I agree the leadership model is not a ticket to Nirvana. Good leaders can make a suboptimal model work; poor leaders can take an exemplary leadership model and grind progress to a halt. That said, I have not encountered a physician or patient who believes the current status quo, with siloed planning by each centre (albeit with the best of intents), is the best we can do. Are we walking the walk as doctors-for the most part. For example, I am the program medical director for all hospitals..imagine if each centre was run by a different Head of Medicine and a different Chair of Respirology? I suspect gridlock would ensue. Kingston has 140,000 residents; I maintain it should not have 3 CEOs, 3 Boards, and 3 budgets If we are to lead Health Care Tomorrow we should get the model right in Kingston and make a more unified Academic Health Care system.
