Executive Program

In the wake of Covid, skilled nursing’s most forward-thinking leaders will join top healthcare experts to look very strategically at our sector.  What is the post-pandemic assessment for payers, referral sources, risk-based programs, home care, and demographic demand for SNFs? What are the most effective practices to handle the long-term workforce challenge we face? Our 2022 theme is Resilience: The Path Forward. We aim to present and stimulate creative solutions to our  current challenges, as well as inspire you with some interesting silver lining opportunities ahead.
