Hospitals face a chaotic political environment in the wake of failed attempts to repeal the ACA and cut entitlements. Meanwhile others are calling for “Medicare for All.” But this uncertainty also stems from disruptive changes as new private sector actors enter the business of healthcare. Dr. Bruce Siegel, President and CEO of America’s Essential Hospitals, will try to make sense of these trends and assess the opportunities and risks faced by the hospital industry.
Since joining America’s Essential Hospitals in 2010, Dr. Siegel has guided the association toward realizing its strategic vision of advancing the work of hospitals committed to ensuring access to care and optimal health for America’s most vulnerable people. Siegel has helped shape the
association’s work in advocacy, member support, and quality. America’s Essential Hospitals is the leading association and champion for hospitals and health systems dedicated to high-quality care for all, including the vulnerable. Since 1981, it has initiated, advanced, and preserved programs and policies that help these hospitals ensure access to care.
With an extensive background in health care management, policy, and public health, Dr. Siegel has the blend of experience necessary to lead America’s Essential Hospitals and its members through the changing health care landscape and into a sustainable future.
