Becker's asked C-suite executives from hospitals and health systems across the U.S. to share their organization's areas of growth for the next few years. 

The 66 executives featured in this article are all speaking at the Becker's Healthcare 11th Annual CEO+CFO Roundtable on Nov. 13-16, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago.

As part of an ongoing series, Becker's is talking to healthcare leaders who will speak at our conference. The following are answers from our speakers at the event.

Question: Where are your health system's biggest opportunities for growth over the next three years?

Julie DeLoia, PhD. Chief Academic Officer of OpusVi: Two of the largest threats currently facing health systems are dwindling budgets and dwindling staff.
