Signature rallied the troops this week when leaders from more than 100 towns and cities in 11 states gathered in Louisville for the 2016 CEO Meeting.
During the two-day meeting, facility CEOs dug deep into issues impacting the ever-changing landscape of healthcare. On a macro and micro scale, topics ranged from impacting quality of care to enhance the resident experience to personal growth and operational excellence. The meetings also give Signature leaders a rare moment to spend time together, share and learn from each other.
“I appreciate the CEO meetings because it gives me the opportunity to network with other CEOs – this really helps me to see that I’m not alone in trying to figure out the best way to do things,” said Tammy Pulley, CEO for Signature HealthCARE of Monroe County Rehab & Wellness Center, in Tompkinsville, Kentucky.
During the two-day event, attendees spent time in a single group setting to hear about the Signature culture, the State of the Union and more. Facility CEOs also broke into smaller sessions, led by Signature senior team leaders, to explore topics in a way that facilitated open dialogue and sharing. During the small group meetings, teams discussed such topics as clinical excellence, innovative new software, bundle payments and retention.
Matt Lloyd, CEO for Signature HealthCARE of Buckhead, in Atlanta, Georgia, said he particularly benefited from Bundled Payments and Navigating the Networks. “Dr. Nazir’s 5 reasons for RTH will be very helpful to focus our efforts on that initiative – work on the things we can control.”
Armed with newfound knowledge and wisdom, Signature leaders were ready to return home.
“I’m so fired up, so many inspirational things hit me. I have got to saturate my team in the Signature vision mission and sacred six it has to become their new normal, their standard of excellence,” said Sherrill McArdle, CEO for Signature’s The Bridge at Bay St. Joe, in Port St. Joe, Florida.
