Thought Leadership: It’s About Making a Difference

When I think of thought leadership, I think of the words of Albert Einstein. He once said, “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” I believe this to be true, as thought leadership is not about being the best. Instead, it is about tapping into the experience, knowledge, and talents of others to offer something meaningful. In other words, thought leadership is about making a difference.

That said, let’s all take a moment to not only recognize National Healthcare Facilities and Engineering Week, but to also reflect on all you do for your patients, their families, staff, and administrators on good days and bad. It’s truly remarkable.

Findorff is excited to announce the recent completion of its latest construction endeavor, UW Health at the American Center. Findorff’s relationship with UW Health dates back to the early 1970s when Findorff built the Clinical Sciences Center (CSC), more commonly referred to as the UW Hospital on Highland Ave. In 2005, UW Health purchased a 42-acre parcel of land on Madison’s east side as part of its successive evolution. A decade later, a state-of-the-art facility stands epitomizing the spirit of innovation.
