In the healthcare industry, there is always a need to adapt to community needs, changes in staffing and regulatory update, as well as provider reimbursement. Providing the tools and resources for change is the goal of the California Hospital Association’s (CHA) Rural Health Care Symposium being held March 21-23, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento.

The two-day executive level program is designed to provide useful and relevant information to rural leadership including CEOs, administrators, COOs, CFOs, nurse leaders and trustees of rural hospitals. The Symposium will address issues such as regulatory compliance, contract management, facilities operation, and more.

Tuition for the symposium is $525 for CHA members and $725 for nonmembers. It includes reception, luncheon and continuing education. Register by February 27, 2018 and you’ll save $100.

Critical Access Hospital (CAH) tuition scholarships for the symposium are available through the CAH Flex Grant program. Some limitations apply, so for more information, contact Peggy Broussard Wheeler at (916) 552-7689 or at
