Publisher’s Letter: July 2013

July Issue; Becker’s Hospital Review CEO Strategy Roundtable

July issue. The July issue of Becker’s Hospital Review includes several stories on community hospitals and the challenges and opportunities ahead for these organizations. With healthcare reform and continued consolidation, many have questioned the long-term viability of community hospitals. Others, however, argue they will always be a significant provider of healthcare services, either as focused standalone facilities or as spokes in a hub-and-spoke model of healthcare delivery. This issue also includes our annual list of “100 Great Community Hospitals,” a list of leading organizations focused on providing patients with top-quality care close to home.

Also be sure to check out the issue’s cover article: “Hospitals, Insurers Devote More Attention to the Cost of Cancer Care,” which explores insurers’ attempts to constrict costs in the once untouchable world of cancer care, as well as the content on hospital-physician relationships and accountable care organizations, hospital finance, and hospital and health system transactions.

CEO Strategy Roundtable. The Becker’s Hospital Review CEO Strategy Roundtable will take place Thursday Nov. 14, 2013 in Chicago at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago at Water Tower Place. The day-long event features three tracks, 23 sessions, 50 speakers and 24 hospital and health system CEOs as speakers.
