Join us on May 24 for our next Leadership Series session with Keith A. Parrott, FACHE, President and CEO, AMITA Health. And earn 1 hour of ACHE Qualified Education Credit.
Over the course of his career, Parrott has been a part of several mergers and joint ventures involving deals between faith-based/secular not-for-profit (NFP), secular NFP/academic teaching, faith-based/proprietary, and faith-based/faith-based hospitals and systems.
In this session, Parrott will give some of his general observations on lessons learned from those experiences and give specific examples of how Amita Health is blending cultures in his current role overseeing another merged entity.
About the Leadership Series
The Leadership Series was created to bring to GAHE members and guests the top national leaders in the field of healthcare to give us their insights into their careers, their organizations, and the decisions they made to get them to where they are today.
You’ll learn straight from the source how these top executives run their organizations and manage their success.
The format is one hour with 50 minutes of lecture and 10 minutes of Q&A. We are expecting to offer at least one session a month, and the schedule will depend on speaker availability. Our series qualifies for one hour of qualified continuing education credit with ACHE.
