Betts: In his 33 years as a physician and administrator at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, President and Chief Executive Officer Henry Betts, M.D., has seen a lot of changes sweep through the industry. He remembers when the n ation condoned the "warehousing" of the disabled in institutions. The institute was one of the first centers to set a new standard of care. Through its support of accessibility laws, clinical advances and academic training in reh abilitative medicine, the institute helped change a culture of resignation to one of opportunity. The challenge now is to ensure that patients' needs are met under the pressure of cost controls.
