In his first public board meeting this morning, new Cook County Health and Hospitals System CEO William Foley outlined his goals for the coming year, which include hiring key key executives and boosting performance within the hospital system.
Foley, who has endured a trial by fire in his first three weeks, coming up to speed amid harsh criticism of the health system's purchasing and hiring practices, discussed his three-, six- and 12-month goals for the system.
