AHA leadership summit features Sanford CEO Bill Gassen

Addressing solutions to major health care headwinds such as workforce challenges, mounting financial pressures and disruption from external factors is the theme of a leadership panel Sanford Health president and CEO Bill Gassen has been invited to join next week.

The AHA Leadership Summit takes place July 16-18 in Seattle. It brings together senior health care executives, clinicians and experts in the field presenting innovative approaches for delivering better care and greater value, ensuring financial stability, addressing workforce challenges and improving the health care consumer experience through operational excellence, creative partnerships and redefined delivery models.

Gassen will participate in a panel titled “Weathering the Storm – Major Headwinds in 2023 and Beyond.” He will be joined by Judy Rich, RN, MSN, president and CEO of TMC Health, and Jamie Orlikoff, president of Orlikoff & Associates Inc. and national advisor on governance and leadership to the AHA. Jeffery Adler, CEO of IPROTEAN, will moderate the discussion.

“It is a privilege for Sanford Health to have the opportunity to offer our unique perspective through the lens of rural care delivery with the American Hospital Association and this group of accomplished leaders who share our commitment to advancing innovative solutions for the challenges we face,” said Gassen.

“Sanford Health has leaned into solving the challenges of rural care delivery by prioritizing investments in patient care, new innovative care delivery models and breakthrough initiatives to attract and retain the caregivers we need today and cultivate the workforce we know we will need tomorrow.”

Gassen will discuss strategic initiatives at Sanford Health focused on removing barriers to access, addressing health disparities, serving our communities, and investing in the people and places of our region to improve quality of life and drive better health for all, no matter where people live or the health challenges they face.
