want to channel your voices in the boardroom. Your voice has tremendous power. Together our voices will bring in a change. Change in terms of accessibility, cutting edge interventional cardiac and surgical procedures and transparency. If elected, I will meet with anyone in our community who has an issue concerning the hospital. In these uncertain, challenging times no issue is too small -whether it is a billing issue, access to care issue or an employee concern.
An open-door policy with you will arm me with information to improve the access to and range of services our community hospital provides. This includes accepting a broader range of insurance plans and improving infrastructure to compete with other hospitals in the Bay Area.
Washington Hospital should not be lagging twenty years behind in quality of care. You should never have to leave your hometown and family to obtain health care outside the District. The incumbent board directors tell us nothing needs to change or improve. Every institution can and should try to improve. They do not care whether newer medical technologies come to Fremont or not. We have the advanced Tesla car factory, but no new medical technologies. If we do not progress, we automatically regress as the world moves forward.
And the current Board does not disclose what goes on behind closed doors- more than 75% of Board meetings are closed. I intend to use my legal training to ensure transparency. Washington Hospital is a community hospital that can and should provide the best health care for all residents of the District. The expense and decisions behind providing these services should be transparent to all residents of the District.
You voted me as one of the four best attorneys in Fremont in 2020 because I have been a strong and truthful voice of my clients in the courtroom. Now I want to be YOUR voice in the Washington Hospital boardroom. My client is all of you.
With your support on November 3, I will fight to be your voice and make Washington Hospital a true community hospital for everyone in our community to access affordable, top-notch health care!
