The Surgeon Speaks: Leonidas Koniaris, MD, FACS
AbstractLeonidas Koniaris, MD, FACS Chief of Surgery, Methodist Hospital Vice Chair of Surgery, Jefferson Medical College
The professionalism and work ethic of the Methodist hospital staff are second-to none, and the dedication to superb patient care is a top priority. Over the next three to five years, our focus is to take this existing gem in the Jefferson brand and continue to develop it into a strong top-tier facility.
We have been fortunate to have the support of hospital leadership in meeting our goals and embracing change. Several initiatives – a new endovascular suite and multidisciplinary breast care clinic, coupled with our first patient office on Wolf Street – will allow more timely attention to patients, better interactions between our specialists, and truly personalized care for patients.
Our goal is to build a truly integrated multi-disciplinary surgical care program that complements the existing capabilities of the Center City program. The South Philadelphia community is a special one, and we are diligently working to provide more and better resources for the people in this community, as well as for the primary care physicians who care for our patients
