The New Hampshire Hospital Association (NHHA) is dedicated to providing leadership through advocacy, education, and information in support of its member hospitals and health care systems. The organization works diligently to help its members adapt to the immense challenges and shifts taking place in the health care industry.
To ensure that the association is well-positioned to meet the future needs of its members, NHHA engaged Gallagher Consulting Group Inc. (Gallagher) to facilitate a strategic planning initiative. This strategic plan framework is the result of the effort and is designed to guide the organization from 2022 to 2024.
The strategic planning process began with an environmental scan which included soliciting input from a variety of valued stakeholders. Gallagher conducted personal interviews with representatives from the Board of Trustees, senior staff, and external stakeholders.
Gallagher facilitated an initial planning conversation with the Board of Trustees in June 2021 and conducted a Board strategy retreat in September. Gallagher used the findings from the Board sessions to facilitate a subsequent planning meeting with the CEO and the staff in November to help develop this strategic plan document.
The New Hampshire Hospital Association Board approved the plan in December 2021.
