How the pandemic has impacted the healthcare industry

A Note From Brian Kelly, Head of PNC Healthcare

We’re in this together.

That has been PNC Healthcare’s approach since we created this practice more than 25 years ago. And it holds in the face of today’s challenges.

An important part of our mission is to bring you ideas, insight and solutions that are relevant to the financial health of your organization. We recently hosted a virtual symposium, “Navigating a Changing Landscape” that included a fact-based scientific discussion of the coronavirus, economic forecasts and strategies for raising capital and investing. Access a replay of the virtual symposium.

In this issue of Healthcare Matters, we address how your banking relationship can affect access to capital and the cost of banking services; specific treasury management strategies to harden your defenses against fraud; overcoming pension market headwinds and insight into the new worries patients face today.

I encourage you to explore the articles below and visit often for strategies that can help improve efficiency and patient satisfaction.
