World’s Best Hospitals 2022 – Virginia Mason Franciscan Health

According to Dr. Gary S. Kaplan, former CEO of Virginia Mason Franciscan Health and current senior vice president of Common Spirit Health, “The pandemic has exacerbated a worldwide healthcare staffing shortage, especially in nursing.” David Bates, chief of general internal medicine and primary care at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital (No. 17 on Newsweek’s Best Hospitals Global Leaders list) says, “We had to very rapidly convert beds to ICU beds, and close large sections of the hospital, then come up with staff to cover those beds. There were also great challenges with managing our supply chain for things like ventilators and personal protective equipment.”
