September 2020

First and most importantly, I hope that you and your loved ones have been safe and sound during these strange and unsettling times. Early September is one of my favorite times of the year; some beach time with family, the Labor Day long weekend just around the corner, and for 18 years, the prospect of returning to Dallas to see old and make new friends at our Healthcare Leaders Conference.

I am sure that it will come as no surprise that our annual HCL Conference in Dallas will not be held this year.

Over the last few months, our sponsors and your host explored all the possibilities of staging HCL 2020, but in the end concluded that the responsible thing to do was to suspend our planning for this fall, and to focus on future Healthcare Leaders events.

Some have suggested that we organize a virtual videoconference as a substitute for our usual gathering at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. The more we considered creating such an alternative, the clearer it became that the essence of HCL would be lost in a virtual setting. The whole point of Healthcare Leaders has been to convene by invitation only a group of leading private equity investors and CEO’s focused on the healthcare services and health information sectors in an intimate, non-commercial setting for “the best 24 hours in healthcare.” In any case, if you are like me, one less zoom event will come as a welcome respite from the deluge of virtual interactions which have come to define our new business normal.

Instead, we turn our attention to the prospect of hosting Healthcare Leaders’ JPM event which is on the schedule for Sunday, January 10, 2021. It will be interesting to see whether J.P. Morgan holds its Healthcare Conference in early January, but for the time being, we are going to wishfully think that they will and plan accordingly.

So, we look forward to the prospect of seeing you in San Francisco in early January. In the meantime, we hope you have a wonderful fall season and stay healthy and safe.
