Healthcare continues to be one of the most troubled industries post-pandemic. A massive shortage in nurses has significantly increased labor costs, and a rising proportion of Medicaid patients versus those covered by private insurance has increased the impact of inflation on hospitals. Most systems are reaching a crisis point, with days cash on-hand nearly at all time lows. 

So what can we do about it? Join us for Chamber Lunch on January 19 to hear from … 

  • Michael Marsh, President & CEO of Overlake Medical Center
  • Chris Bredeson, COO of EvergreenHealth
  • Sommer Kleweno Walley, CEO of Harborview Medical Center
  • Cassie Sauer, President & CEO of the Washington State Hospital Association
