  • Nashville Healthcare Council hosts Election 2012 discussion

    The Nashville Health Care Council, founded in 1995 as an initiative of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, hosted a panel of national thought leaders on Oct. 2 for a preview of the upcoming presidential election and possible ramifications for health reform post-election. 

    Nashville-based healthcare companies account for $70 billion in annual revenue and more than 400,000 jobs globally, according to the Council. Nashville-based hospital management companies own or operate more than half of the investor-owned hospitals in the United States.

    "Nashville's healthcare leaders are paying close attention to this election, which will impact their business models moving forward," said Council President Caroline Young, who introduced the panel.
