Many of you may have read The Washington Post article dated June 24, 2017, which commented on the progress of the relocation and modernization efforts at the Howard Manor. One of the principles of Howard University’s future vision is to ensure that our real estate holdings are positioned for the highest and best use to serve the needs of our students, faculty and staff.
At Howard University Hospital, our highest purpose is the safety and well-being of every patient.
The Board of Trustees is charged with exercising final authority and responsibility for University governance. This is a purview and priority we take very seriously. Our objective is to participate with the Administration and Faculty Senate in a partnership, based on mutual respect, for shared responsibility of the University. Our collective efforts should result in advancing teaching and scholarly excellence, enhancing productivity, and driving Howard University to achieve its unique contemporary mission.

Many of you may have read yesterday’s article in The Washington Post that attempts to discredit the phenomenal work we do every day serving patients. I am troubled by what was written, specifically the accusations of gaps in care and patient safety. The article is driven by dated information and focuses on cases more than a decade old. It completely ignores present day practices we employ to deliver quality patient care. We all know that Howard University Hospital is a much better hospital than the one portrayed in the article.
