For Our Annual Gathering

Sept. 18, 2024

As we bring together the LARGEST GROUP of decision makers, innovators, and next generation of healthcare leaders in the southeast!

  • I’m still buzzing about the outstanding content from Health Connect South Gathering 2023 and the opportunity to reconnect with fellow colleagues Antrell Tyson, Esq. Jonathan Watkins, MPA, FACHE, to meet new colleagues Elise Lockamy-Kassim and Catherine Anderson, and to hear fascinating perspectives on cost and transparency in healthcare.

  • How often do we witness healthcare conferences and healthcare leaders focusing on “health” improvements and not necessarily on “healthcare”? This year's Health Connect South annual conference did just that. We focused on innovation, disruption, AI, finances, equity, accessibility, and many more factors that contribute to having an impact on our health.

  • Being a small company, it's crucial for us to carefully choose the events we attend. HealthConnectSouth continues to be a top choice for COR. This event brings together decision-makers, innovators, and emerging leaders to engage in meaningful discussions, and exchange best practices. This event allows us to identify areas of improvement, build valuable partnerships, and explore new avenues for optimizing healthcare.

  • Health Connect South was a great event! I enjoyed hearing from the panelists and receiving insight on the future of healthcare. Thank you to Wellstar Health System and all the other sponsors for making this event possible!

  • An inspiring day at Health Connect South! Connecting with friends, exploring innovative approaches to challenges, and diving deep into the future of healthcare. Grateful for the conversations and connections that make events like these truly enriching.

  • A forum distinguished by its assembly of representatives from all cadres of public health, clinical, and management. There were insightful panels engaged in comprehensive discussions on pivotal aspects of health and healthcare industry. It emphasizes the significance of networking, community building, and fostering dialogue.
