The independent monitor chosen to oversee HCA Healthcare’s operation of the Mission Health system has scheduled informational sessions across Western North Carolina.  Gibbins Advisors was named the independent monitor at the end of October.

The company is tasked with overseeing HCA’s compliance with the obligations it agreed to when it purchased Mission.
