What Previous Attendees Are Saying

My greatest joys in attending Congress are the opportunities to immerse myself in so many great topics and discussions affecting us in healthcare, while also interacting with peers and colleagues and sharing our lessons learned. Throughout the years, it has enabled me to stay abreast of all aspects of our profession.


Richard W. “Wes” Hoyt, FACHE

COO, Hutchinson (Kan.) Regional Healthcare System

I have attended Congress on an annual basis for the last several years, and I always find the networking opportunities to be optimal. I particularly appreciate the Women Healthcare Executives Breakfast. Congress offers a great deal of educational opportunities for a diverse group. When I return from Congress, I feel refreshed and full of energy and innovative ideas.
