This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: the Podcast” is with Eric Borgerding, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Hospital Association.
Borgerding discusses some of WHA’s top policy priorities for this year, as well as major trends affecting the industry such as the rising cost of delivering care.
“Like every part of the economy, for all businesses, costs are going up,” he said. “Production costs, labor costs, supply costs. That is true three-fold in health care … the cost of drugs, the cost of supplies — all going through the roof. And the cost of labor, which is typically the majority of a hospital’s operating budget.”
