A purpose-driven culture is essential for employee engagement and happiness, which leads to overall organizational success. Employees want to work for businesses that bring meaning to their everyday lives. As ASCs work to meet the demands of successful operations, sometimes that purpose becomes buried under the daily demands. This session will focus on how ASCs are impacting healthcare for the positive in their communities and how to communicate this and invigorate your staff. Eric Evans, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Surgery Partners, Inc. will utilize his vision as he leads us in this discussion. Eric has over 15 years of experience in a range of operating and strategic roles in healthcare services. He has a passion for outstanding patient outcomes and a strong employee culture. He will walk us through how the synergy of these two coming together can catapult an ASC to not only tremendous operational success but also recognition in their community as leaders working to address healthcare solutions.

This requires demonstrating authenticity, vulnerability, and empathy while remaining curious about the future and what it will take to continue to succeed.
