Christopher George is responsible for the operations of Hennepin Healthcare’s community clinics, which see more than 180,000 patient visits annually. In 2019, he co-led a team to develop and implement tools to improve 10 preventive chronic disease measures across 13 clinic sites. A composite measure of the impact demonstrated 5.2 percent improvement, the first time Hennepin Healthcare hit its target to exceed 4.7 percent annually. This equates to an additional 1,293 patients with a chronic health need met.
George also played an integral role in Hennepin Healthcare’s pandemic response.
