CEOs From Multiple Health Industries Announce Consensus Plan to Reform U.S. Health Care
Date:5/13/2008

Will Seek Working Partnership with New President, Congress on Public-Private Effort to Expand Health Care Coverage & Revamp Health Care Payment Systems to Emphasize Wellness, Evidence-Based Medicine

CHICAGO, May 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A coalition of chief executives from many of the nation's leading health care companies and organizations have joined together to announce an industry-wide health care reform proposal intended to 'close the health care gap' between the status quo and the 'health care system all Americans deserve.' The proposal was developed and endorsed by CEOs representing virtually every segment of the health care industry - including health plans, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, health industry distributors and others.

The health industry reform proposal, called Closing the Gap: A Proposal to Develop Affordable, Quality Health Care to All Americans, was unveiled at a Chicago press briefing by Denis Cortese, president and CEO, Mayo Clinic; John Hammergren, chairman and CEO, McKesson Corporation; Mark Neaman, president and CEO, Evanston Northwestern Healthcare; Colleen Conway-Welch, dean, Vanderbilt School of Nursing; Ronald Williams, chairman and CEO, Aetna; and Mary Grealy, president, Healthcare Leadership Council.

In her remarks at the media briefing, Ms. Grealy said this proposal reflects the health industry's intent to work cooperatively with political leaders to make health care reform a reality.

"In 2009, it is our hope that we can work together to get this job done. Too many times, health reform has been derailed by political conflict, ideological gridlock, inflammatory rhetoric and demonizing opponents to make a point," she said. "We are providing a blueprint for health care reform that provides appropriate roles for both the private and public sectors, and we believe it's time to get the job done and do what's right for patients and health care consumers."
