Trustee Insights Edition Explores Diversity, Revenue, Behavioral Health Services

The latest edition of Trustee Insights, the monthly digital package from the American Hospital Association (AHA), is now available. This month’s issue includes an article on recruitment efforts to achieve diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, age, expertise and experience on the governing board. The article includes a list of reasons a board’s efforts to diversify may have stalled, with potential actions to get back on track. There is also an article outlining the impact of steep declines in non-COVID-19 volume and a 2021 hospital revenue forecast by Kaufman Hall, as well as a video describing how healthcare leaders and their community partners are advancing and sustaining efforts to improve access to behavioral health services.

The expanded website and enhanced monthly e-newsletter of Trustee Insights are available through the AHA Trustee Services webpage. They are free, do not require AHA membership and include articles, tools and webinars. Those interested in subscribing to AHA Trustee Insights may do so online.
