We are pleased to announce that 59 individuals representing 29 Washington hospitals and health systems earned their WSHA Health Care Governance Certification, and 105 individuals logged at least one credit hour in 2019.
WSHA launched its Health Care Governance Education program in 2019 to help increase the skills and expertise of those who govern Washington State health systems. This includes members of boards of directors and public hospital districts’ elected commissioners. Participation far exceeded expectations during the program’s inaugural year, demonstrating a commitment by hospital leaders to strengthen their understanding of hospital governance and ability to enhance board effectiveness.
The first WSHA Health Care Governance awards dinner recognizing certificate awardees will take place on Wednesday, May 13 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Seattle Airport Marriott. The dinner is scheduled the evening before the 2020 Safety & Quality Leadership Summit, which will take place on Thursday, May 14.
If you or your organization is interested in participating in the WSHA Governance Education program in 2020, we invite you to learn more about the program on WSHA.org.
