Trustee Online - Board Chairs
Published by Texas Healthcare Trustees

Welcome to TRUSTEE ONLINE, providing 24/7 education for hospital and health care trustees. Exceptional boards add significant value to their organizations! They advance the common good with uncommonly good work.

Chairing a hospital or health system board is no easy task. That’s why Texas Healthcare Trustees created a new module of Trustee Online specifically for board chairs. Presented by national governance expert Dr. Les Wallace, this module will be helpful for anyone currently serving or about to step into the role of board chair at their hospital or health system. Topics covered in this module include an overview of the roles and responsibilities of the board chair; how to prepare for the role; understanding board meeting dynamics; the chair-CEO relationship; succession planning and much more. Those who purchase this module will also receive a free copy of the corresponding guidebook.

This module of TRUSTEE ONLINE was underwritten by a contribution from Merritt Hawkins and Staff Care, AMN Healthcare companies. Healthcare Governance Academy, a trademarked organization under Texas Healthcare Trustees, partnered with Merritt Hawkins and Staff Care, the nation’s leading physician staffing and consulting firms, to bring tools to hospital board members. Their contribution of leadership, resources, and expertise has made this project possible.
