Nashville luring new wave of enterprising health care execs

Brad Smith is a fresh-faced man with huge blue eyes and dark eyebrows. He was typing furiously on a Lenovo laptop one October morning while sitting at the Frothy Monkey, a coffee shop on 12th Avenue South.

“I work all the time,” he said, smiling. “I might as well get some work done from here.”

Smith is the CEO and a co-founder of Aspire Health, a company launched in July that aims to bring down costs and improve the quality of end-of-life care. Nashville’s coffee shops are full of go-getters such as Smith who often work around the clock to help remake our nation’s health care system.

Combine Nashville’s history as a health care town, a relatively affordable cost of living and its growing reputation as a cool place to be, and the conditions are ripe for a new wave of enterprising health care executives.
