Ron Swinfard is the CEO of the largest employer in the Lehigh Valley, Lehigh Valley Health Network. The pressure of implementing the Affordable Care Act, also known as “ObamaCare,” falls on him more than, perhaps, any other individual in the region. People are restless about their health care options, physicians are unhappy about the market and its impact on their profession, and competition between the big hospital systems leads some to wonder what the real motives are in health care these days.
Then there are the unmet health care needs, like behavior health, the competition between the region’s big health care systems and plenty of other issues to discuss.
Dr. Swinfard will be my only guest for a wide-ranging discussion on Lehigh Valley Discourse, Thursday at 6 PM, on WDIY (FM 88.1).
