University of Miami Health System and Miller School leaders share their vision for the ambitious path forward in their first “State of UHealth and the Miller School of Medicine.”

UHealth CEO Edward Abraham, M.D., and Miller School Dean Henri R. Ford, M.D., M.H.A., joined forces Wednesday evening to express their gratitude for the impressive accomplishments of the past year and to chart an ambitious path forward in their first “State of UHealth and the Miller School of Medicine” address.

Dr. Abraham described some of the challenges that limited the health system’s growth in the past, including a fragile financial position, issues with patient access and experience, and South Florida’s highly competitive marketplace. He has worked with the leadership team to develop a unique vision for the region’s only academic medical center: “UHealth is an integrated health system that transforms health care, advances medical education, expands the boundaries of discovery, and creates hope for those we serve.”

Dr. Ford shared his excitement about joining the Miller School just over a year ago. “I saw this unique opportunity to leverage the strength and complementary expertise that exists among all the schools of the University of Miami and its affiliated hospitals to try to solve some of the complex medical problems that we face today so that we can improve the health of humanity and in the process solidify the excellence and preeminence of the Miller School among elite research medical schools.”
