Hospitals today are intently focusing on redefining the “H” — that is, exploring what it means to be a hospital in a rapidly transforming health care environment. Redefining the “H” also includes a component of redefining the “G” — determining the changes necessary to ensure that a hospital’s governance structure will provide purposeful, productive leadership well into the future.
Now is the time to redefine the roles and expectations of our hospital and health care system boards in providing leadership excellence and engaging multidisciplinary teams within the organization. Such teams should include physicians, nurses, volunteers, patient advocates and others while also connecting with diverse community stakeholders for their insight. Trustees of hospitals and health care systems will be responsible for fostering collaboration, supporting changes that likely will occur during these dynamic times and translating such change into positive action and outcomes for the community.
