Vituity CEO Imamu “Mu” Tomlinson, MD, MBA, has been selected as one of Fierce Healthcare’s Most Influential Minority Executives for 2021. This award recognizes his work in redefining care delivery and improving healthcare access to meet patients when and where they need care.

Healthcare Justice Starts With Us

As healthcare leaders and clinicians, we must “walk the walk” to promote inclusiveness and recognition of inequality. The noticeable influence of racism permeates heavily throughout our society, with healthcare injustice being one of the most pervasive and dangerous determinants.

At Vituity we are committed to creating a more equitable healthcare system for all. We are joining crucial conversations on healthcare inequities, enforcing culturally competent care standards in our organization and actively creating pathways for future generations of diverse leaders.

As a country, as a community, we are only as healthy as the most vulnerable among us…. in order for us to deal with this pandemic, then we actually need to be focused on improving baseline healthcare for everyone.
