Lima Memorial Health System will be the host to twenty-five Stanford University Master of Business Administration (MBA) students as they will be spending the day in the Lima community on Wednesday, March 28. The California-based university MBA program administrators reached out to the newly formed Greater Lima Region, Inc. (GLR) leaders to gain a greater understanding of the operation of businesses in the Midwest as well as learn about the future workforce development plan which has been set forth by GLR.

Greater Lima Region, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit corporation formed with three main community priorities of growing employment by 22,000 jobs by 2024 and providing the qualified regional workforce to fill those jobs; gaining recognition as an ideal location for new business to locate and existing businesses to expand; and being recognized nationally as the most livable communities in the Midwest. Mike Swick, President and CEO, Lima Memorial Health System and Board Chair of GLR along with Jeff Sprague, President and CEO, Allen Economic Development Group will be meeting with the MBA students to discuss these priorities.

“We will be discussing the economic development plan Greater Lima Region, Inc. has set forth in an effort to expose these students to Midwestern business growth strategies,” said Mike Swick.

In addition to learning about Greater Lima Region, Inc. the students will have the opportunity to visit and tour Proctor & Gamble and enjoy lunch at Lima’s very own Kewpee Hamburgers.
