Robert Bob Smoldt“The ACA at 6+ Years
—Now What?”


Robert (Bob) Smoldt, Chief Admin. Officer emeritus, Mayo Clinic

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed about 6 years 10 months ago.  This presentation will analyze what has happened since then – what has worked and what hasn’t.  Such an analysis should influence what type of ACA reform/replacement takes place now.  In addition, potential replacement steps will be reviewed.  The group will then act as “Healthcare Czar” and vote to see the actions it would implement.

Bob is the Chief Administrative Officer emeritus of Mayo Clinic. He served as a member of the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees and Mayo Clinic Executive Committee from 1990-2007. Presently, he is Associate Director of the Arizona State University Healthcare Delivery and Policy Program. At Mayo Clinic, Bob worked in a variety of administrative positions in both medical and surgical departments prior to being named the Chief Administrative Officer. Bob also served two terms on the Board of Catholic Health Initiatives.

WHEN: Thursday, February 23rd, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. Arrive early to meet and visit with Bob and other attendees.
