Central Georgia Health System CEO Featured In Health Leaders Roundtable

Dr. Ninfa Saunders Discusses Healthcare Changes with Leaders from Across U.S.

MACON, GA (Tuesday, March 5, 2013) – Central Georgia Health System (CGHS) Chief Executive Officer Ninfa M. Saunders, FACHE, recently received an opportunity to participate in the HealthLeaders Media Executive Roundtable in Nashville, Tenn.

Saunders – along with other executives including chief financial officers from leading healthcare organizations – discussed concerns about capital access and long-term viability. Concerns for both are driving mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and other affiliations nationwide. Increasingly, these agreements result in nontraditional partners and affiliations across the continuum of healthcare. Participants in the roundtable, sponsored by Bank of America-Merrill Lynch, discussed factors such as capital access, local market needs, financial support and growth opportunities.

CGHS has become a part of this national trend through joint ventures with Peach Regional Medical Center and through partnerships with Mercer University School of Medicine, community hospitals and community physicians across central and south Georgia.

Well respected in the industry, Saunders serves on the Fierce Healthcare Advisory Board, where she assists editorial staff with general questions about the healthcare industry, answers editorial Q&A's and contributes to their Hospital Impact blog. Her ideas on coming changes in the healthcare industry were recently featured in Becker's Hospital Review.
