HPS Fireside Chats: Challenges Facing Hospitals Amid COVID-19

The Wisconsin Hospital Association advocates, advances and leads on behalf of its members to ensure Wisconsin’s healthcare systems provide top-quality affordable care. So what happens when a global health crisis threatens its members’ ability to do just that?

HPS CEO Terry Rowinski chatted with Wisconsin Hospital Association president and CEO Eric Borgerding about the current challenges facing Wisconsin hospitals and how the response to COVID-19 has accelerated change for the future of Wisconsin hospitals and care providers.

Eric offers his perspective and shines a light on several topics not widely talked about affecting members of the Wisconsin Hospital Association, including:

  • How the pandemic continues to impact hospitals and their patients
  • The current state of COVID-19 testing and the stress on available resources
  • What hospitals are doing to remain fiscally viable amid an uncertain economy
  • ...and more!

This discussion is on the latest episode of HPS Fireside Chats, a healthcare and business interview series based on the idea that learning from one another is the best way to prepare for what’s to come in the healthcare industry at this critical juncture in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
