A long-cherished dream, and the result of over ten years of work and planning, is finally coming to fruition here in Ann Arbor with the opening of the new C.S. Mott Children's and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospitals in December of 2011. Tonight we are interviewing Patricia A. Warner, an Associate Director of the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers (UMHHC) and the Executive Director of these
extraordinary new facilities. In this very broad role, Warner is corporate lead for all Children's and Women's Services and provides strategic, administrative and operational leadership to multiple services, functions and Hospitals. Join us as Lisa Pasbjerg, executive coach and CEO of Focused Coaching, asks this exceptionally inspiring guest in our "Women in Leadership" series about what it has been like to lead this $754M project. Lisa will also ask Pat to both share with us her excitement, and, to help us understand what it means to the community, to the region and to women and children's health in general, to have such a beautifully designed state-of-the-art facility finally become available.
