ABSTRACT
The article features Denver Health chief executive officer Patricia A. Gabow. Gabow has spent her entire career with Denver Health as a nephrologist before she was named chief executive in 1992 and since then, she led Denver Health to become an independent, not-for-profit authority that support a patient population that is 46% uninsured. She says that the goal of the Lean approach of Denver Health is not just to cut but to use a disciplined system that gets at parts of the system that add no value.
