Ready to be inspired?

The theme for this year’s conference is “Igniting Change in Healthcare.”  Change is upon us, through the Affordable Care Act and private marketplace pressures.  We must embrace it, and find new and better ways to care for patients and control costs, while holding on to our mission to care for people and first doing no harm.This year's conference will provide a forum for our hospital community to come together in order to define and redefine our path to greater success.

We invite you to come ready to ignite a sense of passion for new definitions, new expectations, and new opportunities. The sessions at this year’s conference were chosen to facilitate our individual, professional groups, and organizations understanding of change in the healthcare world.  Significantly, “change” is the theme for our AzHHA Annual Membership meeting on Friday morning, as we present our own plans for stepping boldly into the future.

Speakers include:

  • Bertice Berry PhD, Sociologist, Educator and Best-Selling Author
  • Brock Slabach, MPH, FACHE, Senior Vice-President of Member Services for the National Rural Health Association
  • Maureen M. Swan, President MedTrend
