South Florida Health Care Executive Gives Keynote Speech at College of Allied Health and Nursing Commencement

Linda Quick, president of the South Florida Hospital & Healthcare Association, was the keynote speaker at NSU’s commencement on Aug. 29. The ceremony, where 694 students from the College of Allied Health and Nursing received their degrees, took place in The Arena at the Don Taft University Center. Quick spoke about health care topics that impact health care providers and patients. Some of those included the new federal health care law, patient expectations, how health care providers should behave when they are off duty, and broader definitions of diversity in health care – such as having diverse opinions and different ways of treating patients.

In her position with the South Florida Hospital & Healthcare Association, Quick oversees activities working with over 50 hospitals and 100 additional members in Broward, Dade, Palm Beach, Monroe, and St. Lucie counties. Her organization provides advocacy at the local, state, and national levels and educational programs for management and staff. Linda is also president of the South Florida Hospital Research and Education Foundation. In that role, she raises funds to support an annual seminar on contemporary health care issues.
