Sending Forth the Implementation Committees

November 2012

On Monday, November 12, Lee Goldman, Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, and Executive Vice President for Health and Biomedical Sciences, and Stephen J. Corwin, Chief Executive Officer of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, welcomed dozens of P&S faculty and staff to a kickoff breakfast for the new committees which have been formed to expedite implementation of “2020 Vision,” the P&S strategic plan.

“‘2020 Vision’ cannot be implemented without input from everyone in this room,” Dean Goldman said. “Our nine-month planning process has resulted in a framework from which to develop our strategies even further. We are asking you to help us bring the plan to life with creative ideas for implementation.”

Dr. Corwin, remarking on the strong collaboration between CUMC and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, said “The relationship between the Hospital and Columbia has never been stronger. It behooves us to work as a team to implement this strategic plan, for the benefit of our future students, staff, and our patients.”
