His current focus remains on clinical care but he also is involved in hospital and departmental administrative activity (for the Vice President of Medical Affairs), particularly in the area of clinical excellence and service, care coordination, insurance denial mediation, utilization of resources and fund-raising for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation.
