Two New Member Councils Launched

The MHA Board of Trustees authorized at its April meeting two new member councils: The Human Resources Council and the Chief Financial Officer Council. Self-nominations will go live later in April along with nominations for the other MHA committees and councils. Both new councils will be active beginning this fall.

The Human Resource Council advances the mission of the MHA as well as the role of human resource leaders by providing input on legislative and regulatory issues relevant to healthcare employers including diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, workplace safety and workforce development. The Council provides networking and educational opportunities for human resource professionals, dissemination of best practices, and data collection and reporting relating to hospital and health system workforce metrics.

The Chief Financial Officer Council identifies and analyzes finance policy and payer matters that affect MHA member hospitals and health systems. In addition, the council develops and recommends strategies to address identified issues based on MHA Board of Trustees’ priorities.
