In response to changes in the health-care industry following the enactment of health-care reform legislation, First Tennessee, a subsidiary of First Horizon National Corp. (NYSE), has created medical private banking teams to serve the medical community. They will be based in Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville and Northeast Tennessee.
Millions of uninsured Americans are expected to be extended health coverage over the next several years, creating greater need for cash management, payroll, wealth management services and lending in the medical community.
“The recent changes to the nation’s health-care delivery system has been one of the most profound and potentially far-reaching federal mandates in recent memory whose impact will play out over the next few years,” said Rhomes Aur, executive vice president, Private Client and wealth management services for First Tennessee. “With our new medical Private Banking teams, we want to help make sure our current and potential customers in the medical industry are equipped to operate successfully in the new health-care environment as it unfolds.”
