The Western Regional Trustee Symposium (WRTS) offers quality healthcare governance programming at an affordable cost. Designed for hospital board members and executive leadership, the program broadens the participants' awareness of current healthcare trends that affect them, and how they serve their boards and communities. Best practices of successful healthcare governance are shared for practical application in the boardroom. WRTS provides excellent networking opportunities for trustees and leaders from hospitals of varying size and scope. This symposium is geared toward rural and Critical Access Hospitals, and aims to challenge conventional thinking with fresh approaches to standard healthcare governance concerns and business practices.
Attendees at this symposium will gain increased knowledge about many issues through educational sessions, networking, and information exchange with other trustees and executives.
Trustees and executive staff from hospitals and health systems are encouraged to attend as a team, and a discount is provided if four or more individuals attend from the same organization. Spouses and guests are also welcome to attend some of the group meal functions, but do need to be registered.
The ultimate goal of the symposium is to form and maintain healthcare governance excellence at each hospital in the western and midwestern United States.
