Dr. Harris Packs the House

March 6, 2019

 Dr. Lisa Harris, Preisdent and CEO of Eskenazi Health spoke to a full-house on Thursday, Febraury 21 as the second in the 2018-2019 three-part lecture series.


Dr. Harris is one of only a handful of women across the country to lead a large medical facility. She spoke candidly about the challenges she faced replacing Wishard Hospital with the state-of-the-art Eskenazi Healthcare System in Indianapolis in 2013.


Today, Eskenazi offers a holistic approach to patient care including plenty of sunlight, fresh fruits and vegetables grown in the roof-top garden, music from the concert piano in the main lobby, and beautiful artwork throughout the building.

The roof-top garden at Eskenazi is directly linked to the outdoor gardens that surrounded Wishard. Today the vegetables are used not only for patients but in the hospital cafeteria as well.  “Good food is not only good medicine, but it’s good business.” says Harris.


Eskenazi Health is open to the public and tours of the roof-top garden are available.



The third speaker in the series will be Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 25. Baskerville-Burrows is the first African American female bishop of the Episcopal church worldwide. Tickets are available at www.thepropylaeum.org/upcoming events.
