Calling All Heroic Leaders for Catholic Elder Care in the 21st Century
We are in times of great change, not only throughout our national health system, but within the Catholic healthcare and elder care organizations who take care of some of the most vulnerable, needy populations. Chris Lowney, chair of one of the largest Catholic Healthcare organizations and renowned speaker and author, will talk about the responsibility within all of us to be heroic leaders. Learn how “heroic” leaders learn to adapt to a rapidly changing world and respect the dignity and potential of those around them.

Adaptability in Today’s Changing Landscape: Successful Single-Site Campuses
The gap between relevance and obsolescence has the potential to grow wider every day. If Catholic-sponsored single-site communities are to stay relevant then they must adapt to change, and they must do so before change beckons the call. Hear two leaders share how they’re staying relevant to be connected – internally with their employees, externally with customers and emerging market trends; to anticipate new direction.
Beyond the Idea: Creative Partnerships with Mission Impact
