Programs & Services


Who: Senior Leadership, Senior Managers, Directors, Nurse Executives and emerging leadership candidates
What: The world of healthcare is changing at an accelerated pace. While rural hospitals face many of the same issues as their larger peers, they have fewer resources available to meet these changes. This program equips executive leaders with skill sets required to lead in this changing environment.
When: The leadership series will start in January of each year.  Thereafter, the program participants will meet periodically at various locations around the state for a combination of live meetings, webinar events, and an online group forum.  In addition, participants will work through the online Certified Management Professional program throughout the year.
Cost: $3,000 per program attendee (flexible payment plan available; please contact us for pricing if you have more than one hospital participant). This fee covers meals and event registration at leadership sessions. Hotel fees are not included.
Please submit application/nomination forms by December 1 each year. For more information about the program, please contact Jennie Price at
