Opening Discussion Topic:
It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since Governor Newsom declared that California was in a “state of emergency” – then, later in March, ordered “all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence.” Yet, since ~15% of Californians have already received at least one COVID vaccine, and the trendline for COVID-hospitalized patients is declining, the end of the COVID tunnel is starting to come into view.
During our Members’ Discussion we’ll look to hear how you’re preparing your Organization for the post-COVID business environment we’re about to enter – with both your customers and your employees, as well as any other issues that are Keeping You Up Nights.
Then our Featured Speaker, John Dao, a Principal with Wipfli LLP, who leads the firm’s Strategic Capital and Facility Planning consulting service line, will walk us through a case study of COVID Mitigation Strategies, and “Five Tips for Success” that can be applied to any healthcare-focused enterprise emerging from this miserable past year.
John Dao is a Principal at Wipfli, LLC, where he leads Wipfli’s Strategic Capital and Facility Planning consulting service line, focused primarily on the firm’s healthcare clients, nationwide. A native Minnesotan, John built the practice there but moved it to Spokane, Washington, in 2016, and now leads the office there. In addition to healthcare facility planning (hospitals, clinics, outpatient centers), John’s specialties include market/demand analyses, strategic planning, service line development, feasibility planning and functional space program design.
