The Nashville Health Care Council Convenes COVID-19 Readiness Team and Modifies Events

 The Nashville Health Care Council COVID-19 Readiness Team held its first meeting with more than 50 attendees. There was robust information gathered and shared among participants. The Team is expected to continue weekly virtual calls over the next two months. Last week, the Nashville Health Care Council announced the formation of its COVID-19 Readiness Team to members. The goal is to gather its members and other partners to assess the impact of the pandemic, disseminate reliable information, exchange resources and help track response efforts to the virus.

“The Nashville Health Care Council is in a unique position to convene the health care leaders who are working to respond to this virus at scale,” said Hayley Hovious, president, Nashville Health Care Council. “This COVID-19 Readiness Team is a forum for industry leaders and a hub for others to receive information, which will help with the important decisions that will need to be made throughout the health care industry both in Nashville and nationally.”

The Council has been closely monitoring the spread of the virus and consulting with industry counterparts, public officials, the Council board, the Greater Area Nashville Chamber of Commerce and many others. As a result, the Council and its initiatives Council Fellows and Leadership Health Care, will either postpone or move their events to a virtual platform. Events in April will be assessed on an individual basis and additional communication will be made available on the events page of the Council website.
