Dr. Daggett: a Rockhurst alumnus
“Rockhurst University provided me with an educational foundation to do more than just be a physician, but to also help make the business of healthcare better for patients,” said Dr. Matt Daggett, who obtained an MBA in Healthcare Leadership at the Rockhurst University Helzberg School of Management and his Doctor of Osteopathic degree. “The education I received at Rockhurst gave me the skill sets and confidence required to start my orthopedic practice and to advocate for patients navigating the confusing healthcare landscape, and ultimately try to push healthcare towards a model focused on value and obtaining and maintaining optimal health.” Sano Orthopedics, founded in 2016, now has 10 physicians and over 20 Providers in 4 locations and continues to grow.
“Competitive sports develop many life skills. I love returning athletes to competition and, even more so, helping athletes stay healthy. The partnership between Sano and Rockhurst is special to me and several of my colleagues, who also obtained an MBA in Healthcare Leadership from Rockhurst.”
