The Health Enterprises Network Board of Directors, which includes over 50 of our region’s leaders from key health-related organizations, will implement the newly developed a strategic plan. The intent of the plan is to help guide the organization’s mission to champion and foster the growth of the region’s health-related economy and to identify opportunities to promote Louisville as the location of choice for health-related businesses, researchers, educators and investors.

The strategic plan revolves around four primary pillars to foster health-related economic opportunities. The first pillar focuses on collaboration within the healthcare ecosystem by identifying the critical partners who are driving success in the community and assisting their efforts. The second pillar focuses on economic development by partnering HEN member organizations with the region’s efforts to attract and grow healthcare businesses. The third pillar drives value to the healthcare community through events, policy discussions and educational opportunities. Finally, the fourth pillar focuses on branding and messaging and helps drive the conversation about the innovative stories of Louisville’s health-related companies.

To help drive the strategic plan, the Board appointed healthcare leaders to serve as Pillar Champions and serve as part of the Board of Director’s Executive Committee.
