Rural Hospital CEO Certification
In response to the rural hospital CEO Turnover Study and hospital closure crisis, we are introducing the Rural Hospital CEO Certification Program to arm rural CEOs with the competencies and skill sets to take on the unique challenges of rural hospitals and be or continue to be a top performing rural hospital CEO.
The Rural Hospital CEO Certification will tell your current/future employers and staff that you possess the necessary skills of excellence to run a top performing hospital.
All the difference! Study after study confirms the relationship between leadership effectiveness and organizational success. That is why rural hospital CEO excellence is a must have! It is not an option in today’s disruptive world! We also need to be prepared for CEO turnover. Did you know that hospital CEO turnover leads all other industries? And when the CEO leaves the hospital, initiatives come to a screeching halt, and other leadership positions usually turnover as well.

With 113 rural hospitals closing since 2010, and more than 40% of all rural hospitals at risk, there has never been a greater need for leadership excellence.
Our mission is to improve life in rural America by stabilizing rural hospitals through education and engagement of current and future rural hospital CEOs to achieve leadership excellence resulting in healthy communities.  We continue to work tirelessly with successful rural hospital CEOs to develop this rural hospital leadership program. This program is designed to take successful rural hospital CEOs to a new level of excellence, and to take aspiring rural hospitals CEOs to a solid foundation for leadership excellence. Leadership excellence in rural healthcare is critical to rural America!
