Patients get the care they need

As Vice President of External Affairs for Swedish, Dan Dixon directs public policy and legislative activity for Swedish and oversees corporate communications, marketing and business development. He has more than 25 years of experience in the public and private sectors in law, government relations, business development and finance.

“We provide the doctors; we have the space. Project Access makes sure that we get the most appropriate patients at the right time. In many respects, this is the way health care delivery should work for everyone. We know who they are, what they need, and when we’re going to do it, and what rehab they’re probably going to need. That’s a four- or five-step process that I’d like to have for all our patients. There is every reason in the world to do this. It is the right thing to do, and it’s the economic thing to do.”
