Michael Maron, President & CEO of Holy Name Medical Center, sat down with Steve Adubatoon “One-on-One,” to discuss the hospital’s efforts to help the people of Haiti and how it has impacted him personally.
For over 20 years, Holy Name staff has volunteered at Hôpital Sacré Coeur in Milot, Haiti.
“It’s changed me,” Maron says of this work in Haiti. “It’s made me a big believer that those of us who have been blessed have a great responsibility to give back.”
Life is short, and Maron says that it is important to do something meaningful. According to Maron, this is one way to ”start to give back for all the good things that have been given to me.”

Does Haines believe that the way people lead is significantly different due to gender? “It’s power that predicts your behavior, not your gender,” Haines says. “As powered people, we act in dominant, confident leadership.”
Instead, Haines says that it is the reactions of the subordinates that change. “Women have to be a lot nicer in order to be effective.”

How bad is teen driving? “It’s the number one killer of teens across the country,” Anderson says. He goes on to explain that it is not a question of the teens being bad drivers. They are simply inexperienced.
“Driving is probably the most dangerous thing we do every single day,” Anderson says. He says that on the job training is the only way to learn to drive, which forces the new driver to be exposed to the risks.
“What we want to do is focus on minimizing those risks as they get that training,” he says. He says it is important to start talking to upcoming drivers about safety and risks. “You want to get them in the mindset now.”
