The Board's Critical Role in Community Benefit

Oct. 24, 2017
Noon-1 p.m. Central

About the Webinar:
The health care industry’s transition from volume to value and focus on population health makes board engagement in community benefit more important today than ever before. The governing board of 501(c)(3) not-for-profit hospitals can and should play a vital role in these processes. With an intentional approach to community benefit--one based on service and monitoring--your efforts will have both meaning and impact. 

From regulations for fair financial practices to understanding community needs, this session brings you current materials to stay informed and proactively involved in matters so critical to financial stewardship, maintaining your tax exempt status and the health of your community. As a special component of this session, you will hear first-hand a case study on hospital board engagement in community benefit and the Community Health Needs Assessment process that has contributed lasting value.

About the Speakers:
Valerie Hayes, senior planning analyst; Lisette Hudson, vice president of planning; and Doug Kent, vice president of internal audit and corporate compliance, Community Hospital Corporation, Plano; Mary Poole, director of public affairs and marketing, Baptist Hospital of Southeast Texas.
