Join Us As a Member of the KCMS Delegate Council

HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE

Why become a KCMS Delegate? KCMS pursues legislative efforts with the help of its dedicated lobbyist, James Paribello, and actively communicates with local, state, and federal elected officials to have physicians’ voices and needs heard and understood.

  • Shape the Future: Engage directly in crafting solutions (resolutions and legislation) that advance healthcare.
  • Represent Peers: Be the voice for the needs and challenges of healthcare professionals and the communities they serve.
  • Flexible Support: KCMS is committed to supporting your participation, offering flexible involvement options to fit your busy life.
  • Build Community: Connect with fellow physicians, share experiences, and grow together in a collaborative environment.

Don’t miss the opportunity to make a difference in the healthcare landscape. Your participation in the Delegate Council is crucial as we unite to innovate and improve healthcare for everyone.

Reach out to Shurlon Brathwaite at sbrath@kcmsociety.org for more information.

We look forward to working with you!

“Covering KCMS memberships for our doctors is a responsibility our hospital takes seriously. Membership ensures their voices are heard and they are supported by us.  Why wouldn’t every hospital system do the same? It’s crucial for delivering the best care to patients and our physicians.”

“We are all crazy busy – but KCMS has been essential for my professional growth, offering resources and a strong voice in healthcare.”

“Being part of KCMS is like voting – if you don’t join, you can’t complain. Our collective voice is crucial for making real changes in healthcare.”

“THANK YOU to the KCMS for getting community healthcare providers vaccinated. You are the only agency that has made such an organized effort on our behalf. Thanks for your hard work!!”

“Covering KCMS memberships empowers our physicians with crucial resources and advocacy. Any hospital not doing this is failing to fully support their staff. It’s our duty to ensure our doctors have the support they need.”

“KCMS has excellent leadership, strategic management, & collaborative skills. It’s nimble & responsive. To quote Hamilton, “‘We get the job done!”

“Doctors cannot be passive observers; we want to set the standards, not have someone else tell us what the standards are.”

“I’m a great believer in the physician as an advocate focused on the welfare of patients.”

“Using the KeyBank mortgage discount saves me $1,000 per month!”

“We have to send the message to our mentees to get involved with organizations. The organization gains, and you gain. And I think it’s critical to advocate for the policies … and funding that will make a difference … All of us have to be part of the solution.” Dr. Ralph Sacco
