National Doctors’ Day 2024

A message from Lisa Harris, Excellus BCBS Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer

Happy National Doctors’ Day to our wonderful team of medical, dental, and behavioral health professionals at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and the many physician partners we work with throughout New York state! You are essential to the work we do, and we appreciate your dedication to helping people in our communities live healthier and more secure lives through access to high-quality, affordable healthcare.

I’m fortunate that my role within the health plan allows me to impact hundreds of thousands of lives by helping to provide access to high quality care and better health outcomes for our community.

Our work helps ensure that every one of our members is receiving equitable, high-quality, affordable care. And we’re lucky to work with local health care professionals and medical providers who care deeply about the work we do and are committed to an excellent standard of care for our members.

We recognize that there are disparities in the health care space and believe that collaboration is key when aiming to improve and close the gaps for better health outcomes.

By working together with our local providers, we are able to improve quality and keep costs down by identifying opportunities for efficiency, closing gaps in care, and better controlling chronic health conditions.

There are so many reasons to be proud of the work we do together. On behalf of everyone at Excellus BCBS, thank you to our medical team and physician partners for your dedication, commitment, and hard work! We appreciate you! Happy National Doctors’ Day!
