August 25th – 27th, 2021 Savannah, GA

Annual Membership Meeting.








Meeting Overview

We are so very excited about our 11th Anniversary Annual Membership Meeting! Not only have we beaten the odds, as a group, but we’ve also had fun doing it. What we stand for is NOT stripping benefits away from your employees, but rather embracing the theory that when the RIGHT care is delivered by the RIGHT provider in the RIGHT facility, not only will the employee receive the best care, but the cost of that care is less expensive.

Join the discussion!
