What is the Global Healthcare and Pharma Market Q2 Outlook?

Given the background of high inflation, re-emerging supply chain issues, and the widespread macro-economic implications of the Ukraine conflict, the global pharmaceutical industry is facing an entirely new set of challenges following the turbulence of the COVID-19 pandemic. GlobalData’s World Markets Healthcare (WMH) service has released its latest Q2 forecast. This report incorporates the latest thinking on the opportunities and risks this new environment presents for pharma companies. However, the pharma sector is proving resilient, and we are projecting 4.4% global growth for the year ahead. Yet it remains that the current economic picture is inverting some baseline assumptions from previous quarterly forecasts and altering which markets we expect the key growth levers to derive from.

The centre, which was founded by Yakima Rotary Club in 1971, has faced significant funding cuts and financial losses in recent years.

The centre provides services such as speech, swallowing and hearing evaluations, pediatric speech and hearing evaluations, hearing aids and speech therapy.

Yakima Valley Hearing and Speech Center executive director Nancy Leahy was quoted by Daily Sun News as saying that the scope of the centre’s services was in jeopardy because of the funding gap between state insurance payment and the cost of providing the services.

"We are confident that this acquisition will be beneficial for all Yakima Valley Hearing and Speech Center’s patients and for the entire community of children and adults who have communication and hearing disabilities."

The centre is said to be one of the largest hearing and speech centres in the Pacific Northwest, with around 16,000 visits per year.

Since 2013, Sunnyside has been working with the Yakima Valley Hearing and Speech Center to provide audiology and speech services at the hospital.

Sunnyside Community Hospital CEO John Gallagher said that it is a win-win situation for both non-profit organisations to work together.

"We are confident that this acquisition will be beneficial for all Yakima Valley Hearing and Speech Center’s patients and for the entire community of children and adults who have communication and hearing disabilities," Gallagher added.
