FCV Collective.

At Frist Cressey Ventures (FCV), we are dedicated to improving health and well-being for all. We recognize that it’s only through new ideas, innovation and collaboration that we will drive our industry forward and fulfill this deeply-rooted mission. We are focused on magnifying these efforts through the FCV Collective, which convenes top-level industry executives for shared learning and thought leadership while building a lasting network in support of innovation and a better health care system.

“We recognize that it is only through new ideas and collaboration that we will drive our industry forward and improve health and well-being for all,” shared Senator Frist when asked about the motivation around convening this cohort of healthcare leaders. He goes on to explain that “to further drive these efforts, we have established the FCV Collective to foster inspired conversation and catalyze systemic change.”

Join us in welcoming the 2024 class of the FCV Collective.

“The caliber of talented leaders in our third cohort of the FCV Collective is outstanding,” shares FCV’s Vice President of Partnership Development, Caroline Young. “We are honored to have this inspiring group of transformative healthcare leaders to share their unique perspectives, backgrounds and experiences with each other and with the industry as a whole.”

Each year, the FCV Collective is comprised of a select group of executives from diverse segments of the healthcare industry with a shared passion for innovation. The Collective meets throughout the year, both virtually and in person, to discuss the most pressing topics facing our system, learning from each other, and building relationships with peers across the country. Key activities include a visit to Washington D.C. to meet with policymakers and Administration officials to better understand healthcare policy priorities and agenda-setting. Upon graduating from their respective classes, the connections and relationships forged throughout the year only continue to flourish as FCV Collective members join the FCV Collective Alumni.

 

The 2023 Frist Cressey Ventures Collective members had the opportunity to join in the discussion with Deborah Di Sanzo, President of Best Buy Health and Bill Frist, M.D. during their virtual closing session to wrap up a fantastic year of shared insights, thought leadership and relationship building!
