MHC Governance Learning Collaborative

Are You Prepared to Meet Today’s Governance Challenges?

Serving on a community hospital or health care system board in today’s challenging environment takes more than the desire to fulfill a fiduciary duty. The way hospitals do business is changing at an alarming rate, and the pressure to manage quality and safety, cost and value, and the patient experience is unprecedented. Add to this the challenges of population health management, workforce issues, practitioner relationships, and strategic positioning; hospital board members today are faced with a rapidly evolving and complicated decision-making landscape. Layer on top of this the challenges of creating a highly functioning and efficient regional system, and the need for exceptional governance skills is magnified.

The Munson Healthcare System Governance Learning Collaborative was created to promote the highest level of governance functioning throughout the system that is consistent across all organizations. Graduates of the collaborative will gain both knowledge and skills that will promote a high level of engagement at both the system and local level. Equally, the collaborative will recognize the uniqueness, distinctness and value of the many “parts” and how they contribute to the “whole.” Graduates will develop a superior level of competency in both traditional and contemporary governance issues from the unique health care perspective.
