Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
Mindy Thompson-Banko, Simply Retail's Founder and President, will be a featured presenter at the Minnesota Hospital Association's Healthcare Executives' Institute "Advancing Leadership and Accountability." The conference runs from March 5th through March 7th at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Plymouth, Minnesota. Thompson-Banko will be speaking on March 5th from 1:15-2:10.
Thompson-Banko's presentation will focus on the definition and role of health care retail and the necessary steps to ensure success. "It should be a seamless integration between physicians, clinicians, caregivers and community," says Thompson-Banko. She will discuss how to build and develop incremental revenue streams by converting non-revenue space into revenue producing square footage. "Hospitals have high traffic and captive audiences," says Thompson-Banko. "The goal is to capture this consumer traffic and give the customers convenient locations to purchase their health care retail." Thompson-Banko will also stress the importance of offering cash-and-carry products, including health & care, convenience and gift items, as part if this retail system. Each retail system is customized to fit a hospital's culture and community; it is not a one-size-fits-all strategy.
