New HCA Houston Medical Center CEO Aims To Make A Hospital ‘Houston Can Be Proud Of’
Newly named CEO Chris Osentowski began working at HCA Houston Medical Center amid a generational pandemic with a vision of creating a hospital Houstonians can be proud of. Located across from the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Osentowski has been leading the medical staff at the hospital since August 23. According to him, stepping into the position during a generational pandemic and staffing crisis for Texas hospitals creates a unique challenge of supporting his staff while expanding hospital capacity because of COVID-19.

Health Insurance Exchanges To See More Competition, Uncertainty Next Year
Health insurers are preparing for a volatile 2022, factoring increased competition, regulatory changes and pandemic uncertainty into their bids for the coming enrollment season on the health insurance exchanges. Next year is poised to be the most competitive yet on Affordable Care Act’s exchanges since they opened for business in 2013, said Ari Gottlieb, a principal at the consultancy A2 Strategy. At least 11 insurers plan to enter new markets for the 2022 plan year and some current participants are expanding their footprints, according to data compiled by the consumer guide HealthInsurance.org. Exchange customers have had increasingly more carriers from which to choose over the past three years. Last year, just 10% of counties had a single insurer, down from 25% in 2019. (Tepper, 9/13)
