Foster Swift Sponsors Lansing Regional Chamber 2011 Health Care Forum
On Thursday, October 6, 2011, Foster Swift sponsored the Lansing Regional Chamber 2011 Health Care Forum. Many of the Foster Swift Health Care Group attorneys were in attendance. The event included speakers such as Alisa Bennett from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan; Greg Rhodes from Mercer Health and Benefits, LLC; Margo Johnson from Mercer Health and Benefits, LLC; Nancy McKeague from Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA); and Julie Mann from JMann Consulting Group. Additionally, the Health Care Forum led into the October Economic Club Luncheon where Dennis Swan, President and CEO of Sparrow Health System, gave the keynote presentation.
Topics of the Health Care Forum included:
- health reform and the 2014 mandates;
- preventative health and wellness resource benefits and incentives; and
- employee benefit and needs programs as a key factor in an organization's ability to attract and retain talent.
In addition to the above Health Care Forum topics, Dennis Swan also spoke about expected health care developments in light of the Health Care Reform Act, as well as Sparrow Health System’s contributions in that regard. Foster Swift Health Care Group leader, Gary McRay, had the honor of introducing Dennis Swan at this event, "Dennis hopes to increase the quality of health care in Mid-Michigan while reducing its cost." Overall, these events were well attended, and Foster Swift looks forward to being a partner with the Lansing Regional Chamber Health Care Forum in the future.
