Katrina’s December Newsletter

2019 has been a very busy year.  There were a lot of unknowns at the beginning of 2019.  Those unknowns caused some uncertainty in the system and a frantic pace for providers to try to anticipate the future.

As I write this at the end of 2019, there are still a number of ambiguities for next year but many of those things are out of our control.  I choose to not be distracted by those things.  I choose to stay focused why we are all here… the people we serve.  Many of us have dedicated our lives to this whether it is in clinical work, front desks, finance, IT, etc.   This is the one thing we all have in common regardless of our roles.

The joining of Sound and CPC brings great opportunity.  There were, and still are, challenges for sure.  I have learned a lot over the past few months, I think many of us have.  We are now able to combine our forces and services and serve people in a way we haven’t done before.  We have an opportunity to focus on our clinics by geographical location and focus on the needs of those communities very intentionally.  Reaching Recovery is getting a renewed attention for all populations and is a major part of our strategic work next year.  Useful data and tools are being developed to help you all do your daily work to serve our communities.

2020 brings many exciting possibilities and will require focus on what we all do best, helping people.  My focus will be on exactly this.  Helping you to get what you need to feel successful and rewarded.  Helping find service gaps in our system and bring new programs to bring wellness to those we serve with clarity and intentionality.  Helping Sound step into the 2020’s as a system leader and innovator.  This requires all of you and all of us working together towards the same goals. It requires that we trust each other’s intentions and respect our differences.  We have a lot to do and each other to count on.

Thank you for all you do to save the world.

Happy New Year everyone.
