Good health is the bottom line
In this issue of BusINess we are discussing health care as a broader topic.
In our cover story we talk with St. James CEO Seth Warren about the business of running a hospital in the current economic climate. This is not the first time that Seth Warren has had a challenge like this; he faced a similar crisis in Northwest Indiana earlier in his career. While we are on the subject of providers, there are articles on Wisconsin-based Epic e-records company, which is busily wiring hospital groups in Northwest Indiana and all over the world, and gender-specific health care and the growth of practices in our area with female physicians treating female patients. Also, we take a look at the future of clean energy and the health of future generations. Then we get into the fascinating expert opinions: Dr. James Callahan, who in addition to running St. Anthony hospital is a primary care physician, talks about innovations in medicine from a doctor’s perspective; Senator Ed Charbonneau tells the legislator’s side of the story on the challenges of funding healthy retirement for baby boomers; South Shore Clean Cities’ Carl Lisek explores the effect of environment on our communities and Family Christian Center’s Rev. Stephan Munsey explains the connection between spiritual and physical health.
Some of you may be seeing our BusINess magazine for the first time in this new format. We have made significant changes in our business news branded content recently. We have expanded the print presence to include a weekly page in the Times on Sunday, reaching more than 90,000 readers; a 3-times per year magazine supplement (this is the kickoff edition) going to 32,000 NWI leaders, business owners and Times subscribers, in addition to our Hall of Fame and 20 Under 40 issues and the BusINess weekly e-newsletter. Our expanded coverage and readership will provide more ways to reach more local businesses more often, a win-win-win for Northwest Indiana business.
See you next Sunday in the business pages.
