Governance Events Resources

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.

Governance chair positions demand individuals with extraordinary leadership qualities, a desire to be a catalyst for change and a continual commitment to governance responsibilities.

The MHA Governance Affinity Group is designed to teach board chairs, chairs-elect, vice chairs and committee chairs to improve expertise and judgment, captivate and motivate board members and be a reflective listener.

To assist hospitals and health systems in ensuring their trustees are active, engaged and informed, the MHA designed a comprehensive governance leadership fellowship.
