  • The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on May 2, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    Greetings everyone and Happy Monday! In September of last year, I wrote a relatively short piece on the merits of change and how I have long believed two things about the subject of change: first, it is inevitable and second, the best time to change is when you don’t have to. I mentioned how the […] The post The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same appeared first on Together. […]

  • With Grace and Gratitude
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on November 23, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    So there I was, sitting in church Sunday, not really paying attention because I kept mentally drifting away trying to come up with my long overdue blog topic. I was in a not-so-pleasant state-of-mind because I actually dread blogging (I will get to that later). But then suddenly, the pastor said something that caught my […] The post With Grace and Gratitude appeared first on Together. […]

    “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.” ― James C. Collins, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t I have long believed two things about change: first, it is inevitable and second, the best time to change is when […] The post Capella Healthcare: The Next Chapter appeared first on Together.

  • Celebrating a Milestone
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on May 6, 2015 at 4:21 am

    During April, a couple of significant milestones were achieved. April 18 marked the 10th anniversary of the founding of Capella Healthcare. While the official date of the company’s founding is only a decade ago, each of our hospitals has served their respective communities significantly longer than 10 years.  From Highlands Medical Center at 111 and Southwestern […] The post Celebrating a Milestone appeared first on Together.

  • Have I Got a Deal for You!
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on April 6, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    I recently received in the mail at work a random seminar solicitation called “Happiness is Within You.” Generally speaking, I am pretty efficient at dealing with the seemingly endless nonsense that finds its way into my inbox which typically involves a quick look and an untimely “File 13” ending, not even worthy of being recycled.

  • The King of Character
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on January 18, 2015 at 1:00 am

    Good day and happy (belated) New Year! I woke up early this morning in the mood to blog. A mood no doubt brought on by that annoying “overdue” task named monthly blog highlighted in red in my Outlook task list. Well, so much for that resolution of no more procrastinating. I will try to work on […] The post The King of Character appeared first on Together. […]

  • A Season of Service
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on November 3, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    Well friends, it’s been a while since I’ve written and I am truly sorry about that! No excuses other than when I agreed I would do a blog, my one and only condition was that only I would write it and it would not be done by a ghost writers or a publicist. And frankly, […] The post A Season of Service appeared first on Together. […]

  • In Memoriam
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on July 21, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    First of all, I want to thank everyone who took the time to read and comment on last month’s blog post regarding my experience with my Dad’s end-of-life care and the exceptional healthcare individuals encountered throughout the journey. The response has been overwhelming, and while it was never intended to be something that got picked […] The post In Memoriam appeared first on Together. […]

  • Dad and the “Other Side of the Bed”
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on June 12, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    June 12, 2014. Last month, in honor of Mother’s Day and National Nurses Week, I shared a story about an early career-defining moment involving my mother, a long-time nurse, and how one particular interaction helped put my job as a healthcare administrator into perspective. This time around, in honor of Father’s Day, I thought I would […] The post Dad and the “Other Side of the Bed” appeared first on Together. […]

  • Mothers and Nurses: The Noblest of Professions
    Posted by Michael Wiechart on May 13, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    May 12, 2014 (Florence Nightingale’s Birthday). Last week I had the privilege of attending The Tennessean’s Nurse of the Year ceremony in Nashville in honor of our own nominees: Beverly Craig, VP- Regulatory Compliance and Clinical Risk Management at Capella, and Sheila Thomison, RN, who works on the geropsychiatric unit at Stones River Hospital in […] The post Mothers and Nurses: The Noblest of Professions appeared first on Together.
