A diverse group of leaders committed to the future
On behalf of the Nashville Health Care Council’s more than 225 member organizations, I would like to thank Modern Healthcare for their
partnership in producing Nashville: Health Care Powerhouse Focused on the Future. Founded in 1995, the Council serves to foster the growth of Nashville’s unique health care industry. Our members are both Nashville-based and national organizations that are leaders in a diverse mix of health care industry segments. Also represented in our numbers are professional service firms with significant expertise in the health care industry. The pages that follow provide an overview of the industry history in Nashville and the profound impact it has on the delivery of innovative, highquality patient care around the globe. The section also details how Nashville executives are preparing for the changes directed by health reform and ultimately providing a vision for the future direction of improving health, well-being and care delivery in this country.
“Health care is Nashville’s most important economic driver, contributing more than a $30 billion benefit to the local economy.”
For nearly 20 years, the Council has been privileged to work with world-class leaders to provide critical information needed to grow successful organizations that provide superior patient care. Health care is Nashville’s most important economic driver, contributing more than a $30 billion benefit to the local economy.
