Eight hospital and health system trustees from across Minnesota were recognized for earning certification through the Minnesota Hospital Association’s trustee certification program. The rigorous and comprehensive certification process prepares hospital and health system trustees to effectively meet the growing demands of serving on a hospital and health system board and to be strong health care and community leaders.
Among the trustees earning advanced certification was Mary Ann Harty from River’s Edge Hospital and Clinic in St. Peter.
By participating in MHA’s voluntary certification program, hospital and health system trustees receive training on current health care trends, governance best practices, ethics, government regulations, patient safety and quality. Participants undergo 35 hours of coursework, making Minnesota’s initiative the most comprehensive in the nation.
