Spero M. Alex (1957-2015)



“While my background includes leadership and ownership experience in a multitude of diverse businesses, I am proud to have over 25 years of experience practicing law for the health care industry. I am fortunate to have been part of many major health care alliances and growth initiatives, including the formation of a $350 million strategic partnership with four hospitals in Southwestern Ohio. I also was closely involved in the sale of a hospital system for $100 million and helped facilitate the formation of a freestanding 60,000 square foot outpatient facility owned by three competing hospital systems."
