Q: Why is he a HealthCare Hero?

Lee’s passion for health care started when he became a pharmacy buyer in 2003 and he has never looked back. Not only does he embody a “patient-first” mindset, but he also inspires his supply chain team and other colleagues to match his commitment and passion.

He is a tireless advocate for children’s health and generously shares his expertise with his Children’s Hospital Association colleagues across the nation. Lee also works very closely with CCEA to raise funds to support the hospital and the patients and families it serves.

I ensure that we have sufficient supplies and medical equipment to keep patients and clinicians safe throughout these unprecedented times.
