For over a decade, Bass, Berry & Sims and Deloitte have brought together leading health care industry executives and investors from across the country at our Health Care Investors Conference (HCIC). More than 500 health care companies have operations in Nashville and work on a multistate, national or international basis. The Nashville Health Care Council reports that more than a dozen publicly traded health care companies are headquartered here; additionally, Nashville’s health care industry generates more than $95 billion in revenue and 500,000+ jobs worldwide.

Join us at the 12th Annual HCIC as we hear from executives and dealmakers on the front lines. We will cover a range of topics including current economic climate and its impact on investments, policy and regulatory updates affecting health care companies, and private equity trends in the current M&A environment, among others. During our time together, attendees can expect the same caliber of practical advice, timely industry perspectives, and thoughtful discussion as in years past.

Attendees will examine opportunities to generate health care solutions with management teams and their private equity investors and enjoy some of our city’s entertainment gems – health care, bluegrass and the famous honky-tonks! Agenda includes:
