CEO Ray Hino Attends Becker’s Healthcare Conference in Chicago

CEO Raymond Hino spoke on a panel at the conference

BANDON – Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center CEO Raymond Hino attended the 14th Annual Becker’s Healthcare Hospital Review conference in Chicago April 8-11 in Chicago.

The four-day conference drew about 3,000 attendees, connecting hundreds of healthcare executives to discuss their ideas to drive better results for patients and clinicians and how to be a catalyst for positive transformation within their organizations.

Topics included C-suite and leadership transformation, artificial intelligence and digital health strategies, workforce redesign and talent acquisition, innovation partnerships, growth strategies and financial stewardship, value-based care, and health equity, among others.

Keynote speakers included George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States; Martha Stewart, founder of Martha Stewart Living and the first woman self-made billionaire; Bill Belichick, former NFL coach of the New England Patriots; and Michael Strahan, pro football hall of famer, broadcaster and entrepreneur.

Hino was asked to speak on a panel with two other CEOs to discuss Overcoming Obstacles to Thrive.

“We all face the same challenges, including staffing and financial stability,” Hino said of the topic. “Collaboration is one way to solve the issues and SCHHC is doing that through partnerships with local healthcare facilities, such Lower Umpqua Hospital and Coast Community Health Center and others.”

Movement toward technology-based solutions is another push to help solve current healthcare issues and Hino said the recent $165,000 telemedicine grant SCHHC received from the USDA will help with that effort as well.

Becker’s is highly respected in the healthcare industry as a source of news and information in the field, Hino said.

“It was all very energizing,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity to meet and listen to hospital leaders from around the country, from both large medical centers to smaller critical access hospitals like Southern Coos.”
