Meet John Gorman & Nightingale Partners:
Experts Investing in Health Equity

As a follow-up to Paul Leon’s presentation on how Illumination Foundation is turning around the lives of homeless, John Gorman, founder of Nightingale Partners, will introduce us to Nightingale’s mission to:

  • Address Social Determinants of Health
  • Invest in the Underserved, and
  • Advance Tech, creating “Electronic Social Records” to coordinate clinical and social care

Nightingale is investing in health equity, since up to 60% of health expenditures are determined by non-clinical social factors. As a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund, it connects capital to payers and providers of care to the medically underserved, investing in:

  • Food Security
  • Housing & Home Safety
  • Community Health Workers, and
  • Transportation

No doubt John’s name sounds familiar, as he previously was the Chairman of Gorman Health Group, and is a nationally known speaker, author, and podcaster, particularly on government health programs. He’s amazingly thoughtful, knowledgeable, and entertaining!

Of course, we’ll also look to hear “What’s Up?” in your now maskless healthcare world.

John Gorman’s career in Washington began as Press Secretary to John Conyers (D-MI). He then became the chief lobbyist on healthcare financing issues for the federally-funded primary care clinics (FQHCs). In 1996, he was appointed by President Clinton as the first Assistant to the Director of HCFA (now CMS) Office of Managed Care, where he provided day-to-day management, and was the liaison for the Medicare and Medicaid managed care programs. Gorman Health Group leveraged this background for 22 years, becoming the industry’s leading consulting practice on government health programs.
