KK: John, what was emergency medicine like when you and Harry started?
JS: Harry and I started at St. Elizabeth’s July 1, 1971. We had no hospital status, no department, no representation on the executive committee, no leadership positions in the hospital, and, of course, we had no specialty status. We had to learn to make our own way. We look at things differently now. There’s a lot more corporate medicine, and we have the benefit of clinical and even financial guidelines, regulations, and rules that ACEP has been instrumental in developing for us over the years. A lot has changed.| ← Previous | | | Next → | Single Page
