Ten Counties. One Upstate. Stronger Together
The Upstate is fortunate to have a number of nationally recognized health systems that provide Upstate residents with valuable services that promote personal health. In addition, as the landscape around providing health services has changed, providers and local communities across the Upstate have developed innovative mechanisms designed to help make it easier for all residents to receive needed health services and participate in innovative programs designed to support personal health.
During the Our Upstate Vision Forum on June 2nd we will hear from Thornton Kirby, President & CEO of the South Carolina Hospital Association to learn about the changing healthcare landscape and how those challenges are being addressed across South Carolina. We will also learn about some of the innovative programs being initiated here in the Upstate focused on ensuring that this region is recognized both today and into the future as a leading place for health care and innovation.
The forum will be held from 3:00PM-5:00PM with a reception to follow. The cost to attend the forum is $10 and registration is required*.
Thornton Kirby has served as President & CEO of the South Carolina Hospital Association since 2005. In that role he interacts with hospital CEOs, physicians, state and federal legislators, agency heads, business leaders, and educators to represent our state's hospital community.
