President's Message

february 2022


Dear VCACC Members:

Among other things coming out of the pandemic is the realization that non-compete/restrictive covenant clauses in healthcare are detrimental to patient care. There has been a lot of discussion on this topic within the ACC Board of Governors in the past few weeks. Some members have truly onerous clauses in their employment contracts that would allow virtually no work in vast parts of their states while others note that smaller practices have a great deal to lose if they don’t enforce some type of non-compete.  
 
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is currently in a comment period where anyone may submit their views on non-competes. I would urge you to all your voice by clicking here. I’d also like to hear your stories and thoughts to relate to the Board of Governors during our next meeting at ACC.23 in New Orleans. Simply email a reply to this message.  
 
And speaking of the Big Easy…if you are in New Orleans for ACC.23, plan to stop by Lucy’s Retired Surfer’s Bar & Restaurant near the convention center on Sunday, March 5th from 4-6:00pm CST. VCACC Leadership will be there for a drink and conversation. Look forward to seeing many of you there!
 
Evan Ownby, MD, FACC
President, Virginia Chapter ACC
