Dallas, TX, October 30, 2018 – Janet Elkin, President and CEO of GHR Healthcare, the parent company to GHR Search, will be a featured speaker at the 16th Annual Healthcare Staffing Summit being held in Denver, Colorado this November. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Excellence in a Time of Change,’ with Elkin’s session entitled ‘M&A: Non-Financial Matters After the Deal,’which will examine the opportunities, advantages, and challenges facing organizations, and the leaders, after the M&A dust has settled.

“The merger and acquisition activity in the Healthcare Staffing industry is as hot as ever,” said Janet Elkin, President and CEO of GHR Healthcare. “But having been through the M&A process, as both a seller and a buyer, the most important factor determining the new company’s future success isn’t the cash on hand or health of the balance sheet, it is how effectively leaders avoid common integration pitfalls and manage the impact of change on the organization.”

Hosted by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the Healthcare Staffing Summit welcomes leaders from across the healthcare staffing industry to generate insights, strategies and a best practices approach to the ever-changing demands of this diverse segment. The summit delivers opportunities for driving growth through expert speakers, thought leadership, valuable networking and interactive sessions.

“Healthcare staffing has seen solid growth in recent years, with different drivers contributing to sector-wide successes and industry performance,” said Barry Asin, President of Staffing Industry Analysts. “This year’s summit brings together leaders and speakers from across the field to explore this dynamic marketplace and its exciting evolution. We’re thrilled Janet is joining us for this exciting session, and willing to share her first-hand M&A expertise.”

The Healthcare Staffing Summit will be held November 5-7, 2018 at The Hyatt Regency in Denver, CO.
