BHGR Hosts Health Care CEO Roundtable

Berg Hill Greenleaf & Ruscitti LLP was pleased to host the CEO Roundtable on Health Care at its Boulder office on Tuesday, September 20th. Each month, BizWest assists in organizing CEO Roundtables in partnership with BHGR and EKS&H, an audit, tax, and consulting firm with offices in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and San Francisco. The primary focus for this month’s Roundtable event showcased discussions on trends within the health-care sector as local CEOs and other representatives in upper management provided insight into developments within their own organizations.

While several topics were examined relating to the Boulder Valley health-care sector, the group devoted considerable attention to concerns regarding the influx of new health-care facilities appearing in the Boulder County and Northern Colorado areas. Concerns arose for Colorado’s seemingly poor utilization of health-care resources based on population and the complications created by adding additional resources over the industry’s capacity. Furthermore, the group debated the impacts on the local community relating to health-care costs, employment, Colorado Care/Amendment 69, and the Affordable Care Act.

Among those present included representatives from BoulderEyes/Beyer Lasik, Women’s Health, Good Samaritan Medical Center, Nextera Healthcare, BoulderCentre for Orthopedics, Boulder County Medical Society, Boulder Medical Center PC, VolkBell, Longmont United Hospital, Boulder Community Health, and FirstLight HomeCare. BHGR attorneys in attendance included Giovanni Ruscitti, Jared Crain, and Kat Nicol.
