Former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Young Presidents’ Organization executives, and family members impacted by medical hardships among highlights at Monday’s press conference
CLEVELAND, OHIO (OCT. 6, 2023)–With medical mistakes now taking over the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and medical expenses coming in second among the reasons people file for bankruptcy, Americans are sick and tired of our broken healthcare system ruining lives instead of saving them. That’s why a group of influential stakeholders are coming together at the InterContinental Cleveland hotel, 9801 Carnegie Ave., Cleveland, Monday at 1 pm ET to unveil a new proposal to transform our nation’s healthcare system.
“We need to move the power, money, and control back to doctors and patients, through the states who have decades of experience in overseeing their health insurance and healthcare delivery markets. It’s like school choice for health care; you decide because you control the money,” said Ryan Binkley, the Republican presidential candidate determined to disrupt Washington politics by introducing ideas advanced by healthcare thought leaders.
The event features special guests sharing personal stories of the devastation they faced because our current system too often leads to medical mistakes, delay of care and personal bankruptcies. Binkley will join President Trump’s former Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, Cedar Brook Group Founder/CEO William Glubiak, and Dr. Firouz Daneshgari, a surgeon-scientist and chairman of the Department of Urology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
“We have built a system specialized for sick care, and yet ironically we expect the results of ‘healthcare’ from it,” said Dr. Daneshgari, author of Health Guardianship: The Remedy to the Sick Care System. “We need a national dialogue and movement toward a path forward that will create the next model of healthcare delivery. That model will have all the medical and technological advances but is accessible, affordable, high quality and consumer-centric – not provider-centric.”
Binkley is the CEO of mergers and acquisitions firm Generational Group who launched his presidential campaign in April. He will outline his plan to transform our healthcare system to benefit consumers and employers, who are facing 40% inflation in healthcare costs that are 200% to 500% more than business owners elsewhere around the globe. The plan intends to achieve the targets set by Healthy People 2030, a Surgeon General initiative to grant individuals their full potential for health and well-being throughout their lives.
“This plan will reduce waste, ensure market justice for working Americans, improve health outcomes for those covered by government-sponsored programs, address equitable access to health services and increase investments in biomedical and population health research,” Binkley said. “We firmly believe that individual responsibility should remain the cornerstone of any health system and healthcare resource utilization, with the guardianship of health as a potent means of enhancing health, longevity and reducing morbidity.”
All members of the press are welcome to attend the event at 1 pm Monday, Oct. 9, in the Six Continents Room of the InterContinental Cleveland hotel, 9801 Carnegie Ave., Cleveland. Complimentary valet parking is available, as well as opportunities for one-on-one interviews following the formal press conference.
