In this episode, Cristy and Carl Schuessler, founder of Mitigate Partners and creator of the Fair Co$t Health Plan, talk about the state of rural health in our nation and how he is helping a small Florida hospital remake themselves from the inside out. Better than that, the long-term goal is to elevate this hospital as a hub for healthcare services available to local employers in their community. So, grab your headphones and #letsfixhealthcare.
