ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (September 4, 2014) -- Local seniors will soon have the opportunity to sit down with the CEO of Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) and have a discussion about the healthcare needs of the community.

The Meet the CEO event at the Arlington Heights hospital gives the community a chance to ask CEO Steve Scogna questions about the current healthcare system and learn how NCH can best address their concerns. Sponsored by NCH's Emerald Circle, Meet the CEO is scheduled from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, September 16, at the NCH Auditorium. A light breakfast will be served.

Scogna was named CEO at NCH in 2013 and has more than 30 years of experience in healthcare and corporate finance. He will share his vision for the future of NCH and answer questions on how the organization will meet the needs of older adults.

Medicare experts also will be on hand to provide updates, clarify benefits and discuss Medicare replacement policies and how they differ from Medicare supplemental insurance. A question-and-answer session will follow.
