Do you believe 1+1 can equal 3? That’s the leap of faith (with a dash of reason) that Dr. Clem Hamilton and Natalie Ronayne took, along with their respective boards of directors, back in September of 2014 when they combined their two 80-year-old institutions. These two leaders will share their unique story of what led to their integration and how they and their “families” are building a new organization together. Do they still believe 1+1 equals 3?
