Tom Mullin Named an “Emerging Leader” by Modern Healthcare
Technology has been woven into nearly every aspect of our lives, including medical rehabilitation. Evidence-based research* shows patients are making major strides, faster, when advanced robotics are integrated into rehabilitation treatment programs. That’s especially true for people recovering from a stroke, spinal cord or brain injury.
Robotic technology allows patients to perform a much higher number of specific repetitive movements during a treatment session as compared to a conventional session. More repetitive movement is accomplished through the equipment’s sensors that monitor, assist and provide precise support for a patient’s position and movements.
Tom Mullin was promoted to his role in September 2020 after leading the system’s specialty hospitals as chief operating officer. Under his leadership, the specialty hospitals saw referral rates climb 10% and revenue increase 13.1% in 2020. He oversaw efforts to improve care coordination, launching a transitions program to identify when a patient needs to be moved to the next level of care. Mullin also led the creation of a just-in-time ordering process for personal protective equipment across the system.
