In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Jason Gluck, Director of the Mechanical Circulatory Support (mechanical heart/lung) Program at Hartford Healthcare Hospital. This episode is a peek into the mind of one of the top healthcare leaders in New England.
We all have a personal story that drives us
From a young freshman wanting nothing to do with medicine to developing a passion for cardiology and becoming the founder of the Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation programme and creator of the first and only mobile ECMO program in Connecticut, bringing life-saving technology to patients in need throughout New England.
Life has no definite path, and Dr. Gluck is the proof. Trading firefighting trucks for helicopters; instead of light and siren, you get helicopter blades…
The power is in the word YES
What’s your personal leadership philosophy?
Dr. Gluck saved lives every single day through the mobile Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation programme he created, a heart, lung machine.
He built the most competitive network without competition in the toughest moments of uncertainties, amidst the pandemic and shortage of life support machines! Because “sometimes you just have to change the game”.
Dr. Gluck led this change with his strong passion, creativity and courage, but more importantly, thanks to his teams, who are continuously “re-writing what they know” and reshaping what once was the best of care.
Courage takes creativity and creativity takes courage! To all healthcare leaders out there, we salute your courage and dedication.
This episode is all about short questions and long inspirational, sobering stories. Happy listening!
