Our CEO, David Jarrard, and Michael Peregrine of McDermott Will and Emery spoke in December about the relationship between hospital CEOs, their legal teams and their boards. The focus was on the increasing expectations for healthcare CEOs to be visible and out in the community as public figures, speaking to important issues of the day.
Now, as we’re well into the new year, Michael and David take stock of what healthcare boards need to be thinking about going forward and doing some internal reflection about their role and responsibility – even who needs to be involved on the board going forward. There’s some tough love, there’s some hard talk. But they’re necessary conversations for healthcare leaders to have today.
