COVID-19

We have been experiencing unprecedented times as we all navigate the complex dynamics of the pandemic of respiratory disease named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).  Our members and our peers are screening and caring for many patients, conserving Personal Protective Equipment to ensure healthcare worker safety, and adapting to rapidly changing conditions while helping to ensure that friends, family and our communities help to socially distance ourselves.  The Washington State Healthcare Executives Forum THANKS each of you for the amazing efforts you continue to provide in caring for the State of Washington during this critical time.

 

At this time, we are observing the direction from Governor Inslee to “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order.  This includes our current cancellations of upcoming meet and mingle social networking events, AHLF gatherings, and ACHE credited educational events.  We are maintaining webinar-based events and will be looking to expand these offerings to better provide you all the opportunity to educate, engage and inspire.
