As the frenzy of the pandemic response wanes, a challenging regulatory environments, shifting public sentiment, financial pressures, staff shortages and other factors are taking their toll on hospital leaders. A 2022 Witt Kieffer survey showed that nearly three quarters of health care executives say they have felt burned out in the last six months and 93% believe burnout is negatively impacting their organizations. Recommendations from that report include actions to reduce feelings of isolation, encouraging leaders to recognize the toll theses pressures are taking on them and build connections with each other for support.
