Frisco Chamber Announces Presenting Sponsor for Leadership Exchange TripThe Frisco Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce Medical City Healthcare as the presenting sponsor for the 2019 Leadership Exchange in Nashville. The Leadership Exchange, taking place October 16, 2019, through October 18, 2019, is a three-day trip designed to give an elite delegation of Frisco’s community leaders, elected officials, and business owners and leaders, the opportunity to visit and study select high-growth cities. Medical City Healthcare’s parent company, HCA Healthcare, is Nashville-based and one of the nation's leading providers of healthcare services, comprising 184 hospitals and approximately 2,000 sites of care, including surgery centers, freestanding ERs, urgent care centers, and physician clinics, in 21 states and the United Kingdom. HCA Healthcare operates locally in North Texas as Medical City and specifically here in Frisco as Medical City Frisco. This year’s destination city was chosen for several reasons and, over the course of three days, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from Nashville leaders and exchange best practices through presentations, panel discussions, and tours. Topics will include age, income, and lifestyle diversity; redevelopment and revitalization; healthcare; parking and transit; and arts, music, and entertainment. Much like Frisco, Nashville’s high quality of life, creative culture, and industry leadership makes the city an attractive destination for businesses to grow, expand, and retain their operations in the region. Nashville, like many other cities across the country, continue to face challenges in housing affordability and homelessness despite economic growth and expansion. Nashville is home to a diverse health care cluster with leaders in a number of industry niches that impact the overall community and economy. “Each year, the Frisco Chamber selects a city or region that has already tackled some of the challenges that exist or could potentially exist in Frisco and North Texas,” shared Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. “Nashville is one of the cities that we feel we can benefit from lessons learned during their incredible growth to make our own region more sustainable as well as explore innovative ways to capitalize on opportunities that arise.” “We are proud to continue to invest in the Frisco community,” said Carlton Ulmer, CEO of Medical City Frisco. “We are committed to providing the highest quality, leading edge treatment designed to help keep our community healthy and advance our mission to the care and improvement of human life. This partnership with the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and our parent company, HCA Healthcare, solidifies that commitment as we anticipate future growth in Frisco. We are honored to host this elite delegation of city and business leaders in Nashville as we strengthen connections and exchange best practices.”
