Ricardo Forbes, president of International Captive Managers Ltd. stated, “I feel that the Sustainable Healthcare & Hospital Development Conference is important because one has the ability to learn about the necessary components that are needed to facilitate healthcare sustenance and growth, and at the same time, you are able to do good networking with other individuals in the field that may need the services you provide that, they do not have access to, or was not aware that exist. The importance for attending is to hear from the experts what they are doing to deal with the reform that has now been signed into law and again to network and market your services,” he added.
