“No Matter How You Slice It…”
ACA implementation certainly got off to a rocky start, but one year later, the program seems to have regained momentum. Over 8 million Americans signed up for health insurance coverage on the state and federal marketplaces and another 8 million gained coverage through other provisions. Now, with the start of the second enrollment period on November 15, BCBSNC CEO Bradley Wilson talks about changes in health care coverage in North Carolina.

Helping Dreams Take Flight
“We recognize each individual as a person of worth and value. We teach and remind people, some of whom have often been marginalized, devalued, maltreated or stigmatized, how to dream—how to live self-determined lives,” says Monarch’s Peggy Terhune, CEO of the statewide non-profit offering behavioral health services. “We have lots of programs, but we try to allow people to tell us what they need versus fitting them into a program.”

Compassion The BAYADA Way
“We’re one of the few home health companies in Charlotte that does it all,” says BAYADA’s Division Director Melinda Phillips. “We don’t do it all from one office, but we can handle anything. If you need home care, we can get it to you.” BAYADA Home Health Care also offers its services to assisted living communities, and it often receives referrals from doctors and hospitals. Core values of compassion, excellence and reliability define The BAYADA Way.

Commitment to the Core
For Mid-Atlantic Emergency Medical Associates, maintaining their independent practice status is a challenge, according to CEO Dr. Tim Lietz, but the best way to maintain a high quality emergency and acute medical care practice. “We hire physicians who eventually become owners of the practice. What makes us stand out is that our physicians are committed to our group, they’re committed to their hospital and they’re committed to their community.”

Hospitality Reinvented
From the new open lobby/restaurant/bar concept to the guest rooms and even the hotel’s green spaces, virtually everything at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park has received an upgrade that calls to mind beautiful European influences. General Manager Bill Bennett is quick to acknowledge the 24/7 operation takes a team in order to be successful: “We want to make that emotional connection with our guests, and it’s only through our associates that we can do that.”
