NEW TMA PRESIDENT SUE BAILEY, MD, PROMISES TO "TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CHANGE"
TMA President Sue Bailey, MD, took office Saturday at a critical juncture in American medicine. She pledged to lead TMA in a campaign to “take advantage of change” brought about by the new health reform law. “We will use the health system reform bill as a catalyst to help us identify what needs to be done on Capitol Hill, in Austin, and in our own offices to make sure our patients have access to excellent care,” Dr. Bailey said. “We will use the health system reform bill as a catalyst to make sure that our practices stay viable. We will use the health system reform bill as a catalyst to make sure physicians have the autonomy to make decisions that are in our patients’ best interests.” Joining Dr. Bailey in the “all-Tarrant County” installation was new TMA Alliance President Doris Johnson of Roanoke. “I see opportunities for growth and even greater service to Texas and can’t wait to get started,” Mrs. Johnson said.
