Testimonials


The U.S. healthcare industry is in a period of transformation fueled by disruptive innovation, displaced clinical models and the awakening of the patient as an informed consumer. To bridge this gap, we must empower patients and providers to shift from reactive care delivery to proactive management of total health. Healthcare providers who earn their place in the future must serve a higher purpose. WHCC prepares such leaders.

– Fahad Tahir, FACHE, President and CEO, Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital and Saint Thomas West Hospital


The World Health Care Congress is a fantastic opportunity to hear about a broad range of healthcare topics across the industry. It’s an intimate platform to engage with your peers, hear about new trends and innovation and engage with vendors from startups up to established players in the industry. WHCC consistently brings together some of the brightest minds and topics in the industry.

– Wendy Cofran, Chief Information Officer, Natick VNA, Inc.


For HealthCare to become sustainable and meet the needs of the patients and communities it serves we must fundamentally change our culture and become our own disrupters, thereby creating new models of care.

– Todd Roark, ACNP, Director, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) and Clinical Services, Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital

Once again WHCC proved to be an outstanding conference where the most knowledgeable people in the field came together to learn about industry practices and to exchange ideas which inevitably translates to better care for people in need.

– Sara M. Wilson, CBIS, Director of Government Relations, Office of Legal Affairs, Alliance Behavioral Healthcare

The WHCC conference overall was the perfect blend of business, clinical, analytics, public health, and health policy. This successful blend of diverse topics and stakeholders is rare. This conference fills a space that other conferences do not as many others have a tendency to go deep in one of these domains without weaving them together. The conference was very practical.

– James Grana PhD, Chief Analytics Officer, Rush Health

As a first-time attendee at the World Congress Healthcare conference, I can honestly say that I was completely impressed. The content of the sessions, quality of the keynotes and relevance of all topics discussed were outstanding! Walking away from the conference, I feel like I have a true pulse on what the key initiatives and driving principals for healthcare currently are, as well as affirmation that our company is charging down the right path.

– Tammy Fennessy PHR, GBA, Sr. Manager, Benefits, AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS

The World Health Care Congress was by far the best conference I have attended in years! Vidar and Brian and their teams assembled the best possible line-up of relevant industry professionals creating a platform for sharing ideas and best practices. No one cared about protecting intellectual capital. Every speaker, participant and exhibitor conveyed a vested interest in collaborating collectively to take back control of healthcare in America.

– Dave Earle, VP of Self-Funded Growth, Maestro Health

The 15th annual WHCC was perhaps the best conference I’ve ever attended. It was powerful to see national healthcare thought leaders not just talking about healthcare cost reduction, but proving it with dramatic, replicable results. It was inspirational and influential.

– Tom Scott, PhD, Director, Health Informatics, Lynchburg College (University of Lynchburg, effective Fall 2018)

Thank you to the World Health Care Congress for a three-day jammed-packed healthcare conference! The caliber of the keynote speakers, breakout sessions and round tables were top-notch leaders in the industry, government and policy makers who provided keen insights and trends for what is to come in 2019! As a supporting organization, we are so very excited to continue our partnership and promote this event next year among our state and national nursing leadership. We look forward to expanding our engagement and participation.

– Harold Simon, Executive Director, National Housing Institute

WHCC 2018 upped the game from the prior year by not only including the most comprehensive list of stakeholders and thought leaders in a very broad range of healthcare delivery and financing, but the addition of the Health Value Awards is moving WHCC into a small space as an authority not just on education, but also much needed transformation in very important, and stagnant space.

– David Contorno, President, Lake Norman Benefits
