annual meeting graphic 2017

The New Hampshire Hospital Association and the Foundation for Healthy Communities recently held their Annual Meeting at the OMNI Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, where hospitals, healthcare leaders and community partners from across the state came together to hear from exceptional speakers on ways to move health care forward, and to network and share best practices with colleagues from around the state.  It is also where both organizations celebrate the work being done by all, and to honor those who have made significant contributions to hospitals and the healthcare field.

At this year’s Annual Meeting, we discussed the complex challenges our hospitals, providers and partners are experiencing in today’s healthcare environment, from the behavioral health and opioid crisis our state is currently facing, to the national political landscape and its impact on both local and national efforts to deliver quality, affordable care to our communities.

We thank you all for joining us, and we look forward to hosting you next year at our 2018 Annual Meeting being held October 21st - 23rd!!
