The Power of Rural

In recognition of National Rural Health Day, the North Pine Area Hospital District is inviting you to its first Health Care Leadership Summit. As a health care or community leader, your knowledge and perspective is very valuable. Together we are more powerful.

Health care is undergoing significant change fueled by challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the economy, governmental programs, technology, and more. This summit is an opportunity to meet, discuss the challenges we face, and explore ways in which we can collaborate to address unmet health care needs of our citizens and create a thriving health care community.

The summit is being held in a virtual format from 1:00 – 4:30 PM on November 19 and we welcome your attendance and input. The Hospital District has contracted with Northspan, an outside facilitator, to guide us through the day and our discussions.
