Pleasure in cutting red tape

Ascension chief executive officer Anthony Tersigni talks to Becker’s Hospital Review about himself and his company, the largest Catholic hospital system in America.

He says he gets particular pleasure from cutting through red tape “and kind of get through the very bureaucratic and fragmented state of healthcare in this country today.”

He said he like “to get this country to create one national health policy. Since World War II, we’ve cobbled together what I characterize as financing policies, and we’ve actually taken models of care from other parts of the world and have brought it to this country. And that’s what’s complicating, that’s what’s fragmenting.”

And he said:  “I’ve got the best healthcare team in the country who’s much smarter than I will ever be. We’ve done some remarkable things because of their leadership capabilities.”
