Physician Burnout is a Healthcare Crisis

South Carolina Business Review logo

Healthcare insurance continues to remain front and center in most political debates but there’s another healthcare issue that our next guest says isn’t receiving enough attention and yet is an acknowledged crisis.  Physician burnout can lead to medical errors and high turnover and can occur anywhere from small practices to large hospital systems.

Mike Switzer interviews Stephanie Sargent with SE Healthcare Solutions in Charleston, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
