Greater Regional to host Living and Working Well: Together open forum

Published: Wednesday, July 9, 2014 11:08 a.m. CST

Greater Regional Medical Center is hosting a forum 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 15 in the Medical Arts Plaza Conference Room to create a dialog with business leaders and community stakeholders regarding the current health care environment. A primary goal of the forum is to discuss, from the perspective of local employers, the challenges they face concerning health care costs and access to services.

The forum will open with an overview of the significant investments Iowa hospitals are making in the care delivery improvement and cost reduction, as well as a statewide perspective on health care provided by two leading Iowa business associations.

After those remarks, Monte Neitzel, Greater Regional CEO, will moderate a discussion on these topics from a local perspective.

“Ultimately, our goal is to find common ground between Greater Regional as a health care provider and our business community as health care consumers,” said Neitzel. “We will be working toward the development of local, collaborative strategies for an improved working relationship.”

For more information about the forum and pre-register, call 641-782-3828.
