RYE BROOK, N.Y. -- Dr. Laura L. Forese, said to be one of the region’s foremost health care executives, will speak Tuesday, Nov. 10, at an event hosted by The Business Council of Westchester.
Forese, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the New York-Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network, is expected to address the impact of an area’s health care system on its economy.
The First Niagara Bank Leadership Conversations event will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at 42 Restaurant & Events, 1 Renaissance Square, White Plains.
Speakers featured in the series are “not only leaders in their given fields, but are also transforming the Westchester economy,” said BCW President and Chief Executive Officer Marsha Gordon.
According to Gordon, Forese has helped to greatly expand the impact of New York-Presbyterian in Westchester by welcoming two community hospitals – New York-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville and New York-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor -- as part of its family of health care facilities. That family includes New York-Presbyterian’s long-term Westchester Division campus in White Plains, Gordon said.
According to Forese, a “comprehensive” and “robust” health care system not only “raises the standard of care” it also boosts the region’s economic health, creates hundreds of job and supports other businesses.
Tickets are $60 for members and $80 for future members.
