Two Arkansas hospital executives have been named to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis' Health Care Industry Council.
- Troy Wells, president and CEO of Baptist Health in Little Rock
- Casey Willis, chief operating officer of National Park Medical Center in Hot Springs
The St. Louis Fed created four district industry councils in 2006, each designed to provide feedback about economic conditions.
The members’ observations, along with economic data developed through the Federal Reserve Board's Beige Book and meetings of the bank's board of directors, help inform monetary policy deliberations in Washington.
The Health Care Industry Council is supported by the St. Louis Fed’s office in Louisville, Kentucky. The council meets twice a year.
