An independent HealthLeaders Media report supported by
The inaugural HealthLeaders Media CEO Exchange gathered 30 chief executives from leading hospitals and health systems around the country for an extraordinary two and a half days in October 2012 at The Lodge in La Jolla, Calif. Representing different types of healthcare organizations, sizes, and geographies, these CEOs brought their decades of experience to bear on the most important issues they face today. The Exchange model is peer-to-peer sharing in small-group sessions moderated by HealthLeaders editors. In lively and frank discussions, our CEOs debated six key topics chosen through surveys and pre-event conference calls. Here are highlights of the sessions.
