NCHL Annual Events

Join us for the 2018 Human Capital Investment Conference, The Arriving Future, and the Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award dinner held November 13-14 in Chicago. This highly regarded event brings together senior executives from leading US healthcare systems, health sector firms, health policy leaders, and researchers. This year’s theme, The Arriving Future, highlights the importance of leadership and technology to inform our collective path forward as healthcare leaders, while mitigating the risks that change and innovation might present.

The event begins on Tuesday afternoon at the Embassy Suites Magnificent Mile Chicago with thought leaders who will explore their leadership journey and the need to build resilient cultures, how we develop joy and meaning for employees and ourselves, and examine ways to use technology to improve our work. It is imperative that we lead across our organizations to improve the lives of our employees, our patients, and our communities.

The 2018 Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award dinner will be held on Tuesday evening at the Chicago Cultural Center, to honor Nancy Howell Agee, Carilion Clinic, whose commitment, values, and contributions have improved the health of the public through leadership and organizational excellence. In addition, NCHL will award Peter W. Butler, Rush University Medical Center with the NCHL Distinguished Service Award at the GLW Leadership Award dinner.

The event continues on Wednesday morning when in partnership with Cielo Healthcare, we will recognize the 2018 Best Organizations for Leadership Development (BOLD) top-ranking organizations. We will showcase the leadership best practices of many leading healthcare organizations that use evidence-informed approaches to leadership development, such as attracting and selecting leaders, talent management, coaching, diversity leadership, and succession planning.
