Connecticut Hospitals: Caring for People, Serving Our Communities
CHA will hold its 95th Annual Meeting on Tuesday, June 25, at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. The premier annual healthcare gathering in Connecticut brings together nearly 600 hospital CEOs, CFOs, physicians, and other key hospital and healthcare decision makers. The meeting provides an exclusive setting for the state's most influential healthcare leaders to celebrate Connecticut hospitals' accomplishments, discuss the challenges of the future, enjoy first-rate entertainment, and network with each other.
This year's theme, Connecticut Hospitals: Caring for People, Serving Our Communities, reflects a message that Connecticut’s hospitals will continue to play a leadership role in transforming healthcare, while ensuring the safety net remains viable through a focus on safe, accessible, affordable, patient-centered care for all.
The meeting will feature CHA's annual awards, including the Healthcare Heroes awards, the Community Service award, the John D. Thompson award, and the prestigious T. Stewart Hamilton award, which recognizes an individual for outstanding contributions to Connecticut healthcare and service to CHA.
The program will feature award-winning presidential historian Michael Beschloss. He is an author of nine bestsellers and is a regular TV commentator. Called “the nation’s leading presidential historian” by Newsweek, Beschloss is the presidential historian for NBC News, as well as a regular contributor on Meet the Press and the PBS NewsHour. In 2005, he won an Emmy for his role in creating the Discovery Channel series, Decisions that Shook the World. He is currently working on a history of American Presidents in wartime, from James Madison to George W. Bush, slated for publication in 2015.
The Annual Meeting is open to members, invited guests, and sponsors.
