Our reputation as "the hospital of choice" inspired Walter Chesley to take on the role of Vice President of Human Resources at HCMC. Soon after he started in 2013, this reputation was put to the test when he was admitted to our hospital for a health crisis. During his time as a patient of HCMC, Walter was pleased to see our reputation embodied in his day-to-day interactions with staff. He witnessed firsthand the seamless care coordination, staff members’ special ways of connecting with patients, and their welcoming approach to family and visitors. Walter’s experience as a patient deepened his appreciation and respect for our outstanding workforce, and he believes that investing in employees positively impacts care quality and outcomes.
