    Pros

    At a time when Healthcare is one of the hottest Political and Social hot buttons facing our country Compass Group is the industry leader in bending the curve. First we recognize that the main driver of controlling the spiraling costs of healthcare is prevention. We do this by executing our credo which is that Nutrition and Wellness go hand in hand. As a Professional Chef for over 35 years in the private sector, I have found new inspiration in being at the for front of delivering healthy food and education to our patients around the country.

    Cons

    Meeting the challenge of old cultural values in the healthcare system
