Overheard at Tredici with Jefferson Health's Dr. Stephen Klasko

Tredici (WPVI) -- Steve Klasko contains multitudes; DJ, marathon runner, sky diver, author, visionary hospital administrator and all-purpose disrupter-there is far more to him than can be captured in a single sitting.

That's why this edition of Overheard at Tredici is a two-volume set.

In part one, we talk about what drives Steve, who influences him, and how he maintains his frenetic pace, boundless curiosity and the open-minded doggedness that has made him not only a Philadelphia renaissance man, but a reformer who gets results.

In part two, we delve into Steve's various areas of expertise, with special emphasis on his prescription for a healthcare system that finally, and truly, focuses on meeting patients' needs.
