Rural health care leaders are actively transforming their organizations for a new world of accountable care marked by changing payment models, heightened expectations for clinical excellence, and a greater need for collaboration. They understand the imperative to compete on the value derived from high quality, affordable care delivery. Many rural hospitals are already improving outcomes, creating strategic partnerships, exploring unique staffing arrangements, engaging consumers, and successfully managing the health of their populations.


The American Hospital Association’s 2018 Rural Health Care Leadership Conference brings together top practitioners and thinkers to share strategies and resources for accelerating the shift to a more integrated and sustainable rural health system. We’ll examine the most significant operational, financial and environmental challenges and present innovative approaches that will enable you to transform your organization’s care delivery model and business practices.

Plan to arrive early to enjoy Phoenix and join us on Sunday to dive deeper into individual and organizational performance improvement topics through two pre-conference workshops. These workshops afford substantial opportunities for interaction between participants and faculty, adding great value to your conference experience.

The Rural Health Care Leadership Conference offers a powerful focus on innovative ideas, thoughtful insights, and tested strategies for responding to an ever-changing world. We hope you’ll join us in Phoenix.


Who should attend:

  • Rural Hospital CEOs, Administrators, Senior Executives and System Leaders
  • Governing Board Members
  • Nursing and Physician Executives
  • Public Health and Community Leaders
  • Executives of Rural Health Care Associations, Networks and Clinics
