Building Owners and Managers Association International

BOMA International's 2013 MOB Conference, Presented by Lillibridge, to Break All Attendance Records

April 26, 2013

(WASHINGTON, DC—April 26, 2013) The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International announced today that its 2013 Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Facilities Conference is set to exceed all attendance numbers from years past.  BOMA's MOB conference takes place May 1-3, 2013, at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco and will bring together more than 750 of the industry’s brightest professionals from all facets of the healthcare real estate sector.  The event is presented by Lillibridge Healthcare Services, Inc., the largest owner and manager of MOBs in the U.S. and a wholly owned subsidiary of Ventas, Inc.
 
This year’s conference will feature a high-powered line-up of more than 90 speakers presenting in four General Sessions and four tracks of programming: Capital Markets, Compliance and Regulatory, Leasing and Management and Provider Strategies. The conference also will feature three provocative keynote speakers:
  • Dr. Marty Makary will kick off the conference at the Opening Plenary Session on Wednesday, where he will discuss the troubling issues raised in his best-selling book, Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Healthcare.
  • At the Keynote Luncheon on Thursday, Connie R. Curran, EdD, RN, FAAN, will share her insights on hospital safety and quality in an era of reform.
  • The conference will end with a bang on Friday with healthcare futurist and innovation thought leader Nicholas Webb, who will explain how disruptive market changes require completely new strategies. He will paint a clear vision of the future of healthcare—a vision that includes a number of earth-shattering insights.
New to the conference this year are Facilitated Roundtable Discussions, which will bring speakers and attendees together in an intimate setting designed to encourage problem solving and an exchange of ideas. These roundtable discussions will allow for 15 to 20 attendees to engage in lively, candid discussions with subject matter experts on the latest in leadership and technology.
 
“From beginning to end, this conference promises to offer unique and innovative lessons for leaders from the most progressive healthcare and real estate organizations,” said Todd W. Lillibridge, president and chief executive officer for Lillibridge and executive vice president of Medical Properties for Ventas. “We’re particularly excited to have Nicholas Webb as the closing speaker. We’re encouraging everyone to stick around for what promises to be a thought-provoking, inspiring presentation.”
 
“We’ve sponsored BOMA’s Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Facilities Conference for four years in a row, because we believe this event is critical to our industry,” added Vincent M. Cozzi, senior vice president for Ventas, Inc. “It’s a forum that brings together visionaries to share ideas that are shaping the way healthcare is delivered.”
 
“This conference brings together a blend of healthcare providers and healthcare real estate professionals, creating an outstanding mix of the best minds in the field together. In this watershed year closing in on the implementation of the Accountable Care Act on January 1, 2014, the impact is still unknown. These issues will be thoroughly discussed and examined during the conference,” said Neil Carolan, president of Healthcare Real Estate Consulting, LLC and co-chair of the BOMA International Medical Office and Healthcare Facilities Committee and Conference.  Carolan is the first healthcare executive to hold an appointed office within BOMA International.
