STATE of the SENIOR CARE INDUSTRY
The conference opens with a Keynote panel on the “State of the Industry” from the proverbial ’36-thousand feet.’ The panel will be made up of leading SENIOR CARE experts with first-hand information on the status of, and investment opportunities in, the senior care sector in the United States. As turmoil and stalemate continue to dominate healthcare policy-making, how will deal-making in the senior care sector be affected by the possibility of reductions in Medicare reimbursements?
