Important Update: Connecticut Hospital Association Annual Meeting

Due to the ongoing concern for the potential transmission of COVID-19, especially at large gatherings, the Connecticut Hospital Association (CHA) has decided not to hold its 2020 Annual Meeting.  The annual event will resume in 2021. 

The gathering of representatives from hospitals and health systems from across the state provides a meaningful opportunity to reflect on the past year and consider the opportunities and challenges of the year to come.  Historically, it is also an opportunity to acknowledge the exceptional work of hospital colleagues through the presentation of the Healthcare Heroes Awards, Connecticut’s Hospital Community Service Award, and the John D. Thompson Award for Excellence in the Delivery of Healthcare Through the Use of Data.  While recognizing the tremendous work of this year’s nominees, unfortunately, we will not be making those awards in 2020.     

While disappointed that this year’s event will not be held, CHA continues to be grateful for the opportunity to represent Connecticut’s hospitals and health systems and looks forward to future opportunities to recognize the exceptional work being done by its members.
