PUBLIC AFFAIRS ROUNDTABLE EXPLORES THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF HEALTH CARE
Executives from Williamson Medical Center and Tennessee Hospital Association are guests
WHAT: Williamson, Inc.’s Public Affairs Roundtable welcomes senior executives from Williamson Medical Center (WMC) and the Tennessee Hospital Association to discuss the economic impact of county hospitals as it relates to the future of health care.
WHY: Nashville is largely considered the health care industry capital of the world. Out of Williamson County’s top 20 largest employers, 10 are health care companies according to Williamson, Inc. Economic Development’s 2017 Trends Report. The Public Affairs Roundtable discussion will focus on three themes: 1) The Future of Health Care – What does the future of health care look like? What are the current trends? What do plans for the future look like at WMC? 2) Tennessee’s Rural Hospital Crisis – What are the problems of rural hospitals? How is WMC affected by these problems? Should we be concerned about WMC? 3) The Benefits of a County-Owned Hospital vs. a Privately-Owned Hospital – What services does Williamson County enjoy that are not typically provided by a for-profit hospital?
