Day One Breakout Sessions

Various Rooms

Quad Room

Marie Barry, Director of Community Economic Development at Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative

"Rural Engagement in Economic Development: Why and How"

A body of research supports the idea that both the financial health of rural hospitals and the physical health of patients is largely influenced by the local economy. However, healthcare leaders face aq multitude of pressing problems more closely linked to the daily operations of their hospitals. How do you make the case to your Board of Directors and other local leaders that it is worth the hospital's time and relevant to their operations to engage in local economic development efforts? And how can a small, rural hospital with few financial resources make a demonstrable impact on their local economy? This session will provide a comprehensive case for rural hospital involvement in economic development alone with actionable, practical strategies for engagement in local economic development efforts that hospital leaders can take back to their organization and implement.
