The Role of hospital administrator

In the role of hospital administrator, you must interact with professionals at all levels of the organization.

Often, you may be the liaison between the provider, the patient, or the situation and the board of trustees or governing body.

A common opinion in health care is that the highest ranked officials in the healthcare system are too far removed from patient care to directly affect the patients of a hospital. Discuss your thoughts on this sentiment. Do you agree or disagree?

How does the board of trustees determine the trajectory of a healthcare organization? Does the healthcare triad (governing body, CEO, and medical professionals) as a team have more or less influence on that trajectory? Explain your position.
