GCP Middle-Market Healthcare Forum

03.26.14 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Location Info:
GCP Offices, 1240 Huron Road East, Cleveland, OH 44115

According to the National Center for the Middle Market’s Q4 2013 Middle-Market Indicator Report, 88 percent of the 1,000 C-suite middle-market executives surveyed said that healthcare costs are at least somewhat challenging and more than half saying they are highly challenging.  

Without the scale of large companies or exemptions afforded to small companies, middle-market companies must adjust to both rising healthcare costs and implementing new regulations.
Please join us as our panel of experts discusses how the Affordable Care Act is affecting middle-market firms and how those companies are embracing innovations that are simultaneously reducing business costs and improving healthcare outcomes.

Day/Date: Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Time: 7:30 to 9: 30 a.m.

Place: GCP Offices

RSVP: Registration is closed.
