The Indian River Medical Center (IRMC) in Vero Beach, Florida, will join the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic in a business combination expected to close by the end of 2018.

Engage with leaders from the Cleveland Clinic and Indian River County Hospital District in discussing the transaction at The Governance Institute’s 2019 Leadership Conferences in Naples, Florida on January 21 and in Scottsdale, Arizona on April 16.

The transaction between IRMC and the Cleveland Clinic is representative of both the growing wave of governmental and community hospitals exploring new ownership structures and large health systems pursuing bold growth strategies in attractive markets.

Dr. Wael Barsoum, CEO and President of the Cleveland Clinic Florida, Josette Beran, Chief Strategy Officer of the Cleveland Clinic and Marybeth Cunningham, Chair of the Indian River County Hospital District Board of Trustees will discuss the origin of their partnership, considerations unique to a government hospital transaction, and early results. The panel discussion will be moderated by Jamie Burgdorfer, Principal of Juniper Advisory, who served as the transaction advisor.

The Governance Institute is a trusted source of resources and solutions for hospital board members, executives and physician leaders.

Hospital leaders needn’t be members of The Governance Institute to attend.

We look forward to seeing you there!
