Program Description

The 2016 Leadership Summit focuses on the theme, “Leading through Disruption.” From the political landscape to the health care business environment, disruption is not just a passing trend. The new health economy has arrived—and HAP’s Leadership Summit provides a great opportunity to hear national and local perspectives to help you and your organization accelerate the way you operate internally and lead through the disruption.

The networking and education sessions will help hospital and health system leaders maintain the balance between achieving results today and innovating to seize new opportunities in the future.

A sell-out every year, this flagship event ensures direct access to more than 100 C-Suite and executive staff of hospitals and health systems, including CEOs, COOs, CFOs, physician and nurse leaders, administrators, government relations officers, and trustees from hospitals and health systems across Pennsylvania. Sponsors may attend all educational sessions and have dedicated space at the welcome reception. Limited space is available and it is important to act quickly to reserve your space at this important event. Requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
