Marymount University will host a symposium on new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations that deal with assisting hospitals and healthcare providers with coordination of care for Medicare patients through Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The event will be held on Tuesday,  December 4, at 6 p.m., at Marymount’s Ballston Center, 1000 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA.
