Morning Sessions:

What’s In, What’s Out in Tomorrow’s Healthcare System

Competition, consolidation, and changing economics are forcing a rethink of the hospital campus and its role in a healthcare network. Some will get bigger; others smaller, a few will close. Some will add more services, and others specialize. How do outpatient clinics, ASC, freestanding EDs, LTACs, and specialty care facilities fit in a healthcare system? The only given is things change and you need to adapt.
