Asheville, North Carolina, April 8, 2019 – Capstone Health Alliance announces its new partnership with Biltmore Center for Professional Development, an Accredited Provider of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) by the International Association. Biltmore Center for Professional Development partners with healthcare members to humanize and elevate their patient experience, leading from over 120 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Through the successful marriage of hospitality best practices and positive medical outcomes, Biltmore’s clients have seen 20-30% increases in patient acquisition within one year of their attendance in a Biltmore workshop.
In the words of Mark Williams, Director of Customer Engagement for Hope Health of Florence, SC: “I have attended quite few conferences in my career and this two-day workshop was one of, if not the best I have participated in. The material was pertinent, the presenters were well informed and communicated excellently and we had fun!”
Capstone Chief Customer Officer, Jackie Dula, said “Capstone is excited to partner with a community leader like Biltmore. Having personally participated in two Biltmore Center for Professional Development courses, I know firsthand the exceptional quality and fresh ideas the Biltmore team presents to participants and we are excited to now offer it to our members.”
