This year’s Healthcare Summit is bigger than ever. It’s on June 19 – 20 at The Coaches Club at MetLife Stadium. We had a Q&A with Ovadyah Stavsky, Director of Marketing at SPS and LTC, to find out what you need to know to get the most out of the packed agenda.
Q: This is the sixth annual Healthcare Summit. What’s new this year?
We’ve taken the learnings from each of the previous Healthcare Summits and have built them into this year’s event. The Healthcare Summit started out fairly small, but due to overflowing classes and increased success year after year, we’ve scaled the program to a full two-day event. We are offering attendees up to three CEUs per day for a total of six, and all workshops are approved LNHA’s, CALA’s, DON’s and SW’s, and for all states.
The Healthcare Summit is all about appreciation and learning opportunities for our clients and healthcare professionals. I’m sure attendees won’t be disappointed.
Q: Can you tell us about the informative CEU sessions?
On Monday, June 19th, there are two sessions on “Utilization Review Today – Everything You Need to Know…And Then Some!” The UR process controls costs and quality of care, which protects both patients and facilities. Each session earns 1.5 CEUs, for a total of 3 CEUs for the full course.
Tuesday’s two-part program is on a topic that doesn’t receive enough attention: “From High School to Old School: Elders Who Bully and Strategies to Intervene.” Some seniors in facilities undergo the same unfair treatment as high school students. Again, each session earns 1.5 CEUs.
Attendees do not have to go to all sessions to get credits. New Jersey social workers should be aware that they must attend part one and two of a course for three credits. They can’t receive 1.5 for half of a course.

Q: Bo Dietl is your guest speaker this year. What can attendees expect from his address?
With Bo, one thing I’m sure we can expect is the unexpected. Bo is a force of nature and is always memorable. He is one of the most highly decorated NYPD detectives in the history of the NYPD and he runs one of the most successful private investigation firms in the country. He’s quintessentially New York, and he’s currently running for mayor of New York.
Q: Who should attend the Healthcare Summit?
The daytime courses are designed for healthcare professionals, such as administrators of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, social workers, and directors of nursing. Others in the industry, such as BOM’s etc., will enjoy and benefit from the networking events. We look forward to seeing you there!
