2016 Winter Membership Meeting
More than 400 healthcare leaders attended NCHA’s Winter Membership Meeting February 18-19, 2016 in Cary. In accordance with the meeting’s theme of Connecting Advocacy and Transformation, programs focused on the importance of educating and engaging with lawmakers and allied organizations at a time of profound change in health care as we redefine the ‘H,’ focus on value, embrace new technology and build new community partnerships to improve health in North Carolina.
The meeting kicked off with Governor Pat McCrory discussing next steps with Medicaid reform and his Connect N.C. Bond proposal that includes modernizing medical education buildings to meet the demands of 21st century medicine. He then presented the Governor’s Award for Performance Excellence to Duke Regional Hospital, represented by President Katie Galbraith.
Another highlight of the opening session was the address given by NCHA Chair Joann Anderson, president and CEO of Southeastern Health in Lumberton. She challenged members to come together as a field and bring about change to make North Carolinians healthier, ensure the viability of our healthcare systems and reaffirm the ideals that led each of us into this field.
Video highlights, including the Chair’s Address and presentations by Rick Pollack of the American Hospital Association, Dr. Steve Berkowitz of SMB Health Consulting and Rev. Richard Joyner of the Conetoe Family Life Center, are available here.
The Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley Hotel will be the location for the Feb. 15-16, 2017 Winter Meeting.
