Orientation/Education Offered for Trustees of MHA-member Organizations

Posted on June 22, 2017

There are strong views about the future of healthcare, and both hospital administration and healthcare governing bodies must seriously weigh options in the context of their organization’s mission and the community it serves to successfully navigate this changing environment.

To inform board members about ways providers and the MHA are collaborating, embracing transparency, and meeting patients and communities where they are in their health journey, the MHA is conducting a hospital/health system trustee orientation from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Country Club of Lansing.

The first part of the day will be a briefing on the MHA’s advocacy, access to care, and patient safety efforts. New hospital and health system CEOs are invited to the MHA briefing, as well as trustees. The last part of the day includes an educational session specifically for trustees on a board’s legal duties and responsibilities and how to use knowledge and teamwork to lead.

Trustees may register separately for either the MHA briefing or the governance educational session, or they can register to attend both. A fee of $25 is required to register for the governance session. For those registering for only the MHA briefing, the session adjourns at 10:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided for trustees who are registered for the full day. Registration forms should be submitted to Erica Leyko, and additional information is available from Erin Steward at the MHA.
