WISCA 2022 Leadership Summit

WISCA thanks those who registered to attend Leadership Summit. The goal was to invite Wisconsin’s ASC leaders from around the state to join with colleagues. The event featured a variety of presentations from experts sharing their insights on current topics affecting the business and operations of ambulatory surgery centers. Our event started with the Thursday night reception, followed by a full-day on Friday of presentations from experts around the state. Attendees learned more about the direction of Wisconsin’s economy and its impact on healthcare, workforce development strategies, advocacy and regulatory changes affecting ASCs, and much more.
