Conflict, distrust and misaligned visions between a hospital board and a district or county board can weaken the foundations of even the strongest county- or district-owned health systems. The catalysts that can cause these tensions to boil over have never been more powerful: new competitive threats, provider shortages, advanced payment models, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

We hosted a webinar, Moving from Conflict to Consensus between Public Boards and Hospital Boards. During the webinar, we answered questions like:

  • Why is it vital to have a sound working relationship between boards?
  • What are the proven strategies to de-escalate conflict?
  • What are some of the pitfalls to avoid when working on critical issues without the benefit of a sound working relationship between boards?
