SEATTLE, Sept. 13, 2012 - In light of how unique it is that Swedish's three chiefs of staff - Drs. Mary Weiss (First Hill, Cherry Hill and Ballard campuses), Michelle Sinnett (Edmonds campus), and Lily Jung Henson (Issaquah campus) - are all women, Washington Healthcare News recently published a related article titled 'Swedish Shatters any Vestige of a Glass Ceiling' by Swedish's Chief Medical Officer John Vassall, M.D.
The piece includes information about why this is unique and significant, background about each of the chiefs of staff, as well as historical perspectives, especially related to the fact that Swedish's current Board Chair - Nancy Auer, M.D. - has been a trailblazer, mentor and role model for Drs. Weiss, Sinnett and Jung Henson.
