In an ambitious move, AtlantiCare, the largest healthcare organization in the region, with more than 6,500 team members, has set its sights on a visionary path. Vision 2030, a six-year initiative, represents a paradigm shift in healthcare strategy. Under the dynamic leadership of President and CEO Michael J. Charlton, AtlantiCare aims to redefine the way healthcare is delivered, measured, and experienced.  I was fortunate to join more than 300 community leaders and stakeholders this week at Boardwalk Hall for an inspiring presentation outlining AtlantiCare's initiatives, and they lived up to the billing of "Remarkable. Reimagined."

Before the main presentation, I explored AtlantiCare’s 125 years of impact showcase with the other guests. President and CEO Michael Charlton then introduced strategies for transforming healthcare in our community and nationwide. Major announcements included partnership and affiliation with Oracle Health, Drexel University, Stockton University, Cleveland Clinic Cancer Institute, and Global Neurosciences Institute. AtlantiCare also unveiled strategies to support healthcare education through AtlantiCare YOUniversity, offering reimbursement for training and education and establishing the first medical school in Atlantic City. AtlantiCare’s Vision 2030 also sets ambitious goals for achieving greater health equity... leveraging technology through “AtlantiCare Powered by Oracle Health”... and investing in behavioral health, pediatrics, cardiology, neurosciences, oncology, and orthopedics.

VISION 2030 is focused on transforming how healthcare is defined, measured, and delivered nationwide. AtlantiCare’s plan prioritizes better outcomes achieved through innovation, compassion, integrity, and humanity. Founded on AtlantiCare’s 125 years as an anchor institution in the region, VISION 2030 continues AtlantiCare’s deeply held commitment to improving health throughout its communities by anticipating and adapting to changing global, regional, and local health influences. The plan is shaped by four strategic pillars — serving the community, workplace excellence, accelerating transformation, and growing market share — each having aggressive, measurable goals.
