Leading the Way to a Healthier Michigan

Health system and hospital trustees play a unique role in supporting the health of the communities they serve and upholding high standards for our state’s healthcare facilities. By supporting these leaders, the MHA is supporting its members as they drive innovation to improve healthcare quality and lower costs.

These resources from the American Hospital Association and the MHA are intended to help new and currently serving healthcare trustees and other executives as they lead the way to a healthier Michigan.

2019 MHA Trustee Day at the Capitol

Oct. 15, 2019 | 8:30 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.
MHA Capitol Advocacy Center, Lansing

It is critical that both hospital administration and governing bodies understand the impact of health policy, good or bad, to enable them to advocate for changes that positively impact Michigan providers. 

The MHA will host an advocacy day for hospital and health system governing board members. The event will include critical updates on the state budget, auto no-fault insurance, patient safety, behavioral health services, work requirements for Healthy Michigan Plan enrollees, and initiatives focused on health equity and improvement.

There is no charge for the event, but registration is required. 

Members with questions may contact Paige Fults or Erin Steward at the MHA.
