HMA Partners with the National Association of Latino Healthcare Executives

Health Management Associates (HMA), a leading independent, national research, and consulting firm specializing in publicly funded healthcare and human services, is pleased to announce its partnership with, and corporate sponsorship of, the National Association of Latino Healthcare Executives (NALHE). NALHE was founded in 2005 to increase senior-level Latino/Latina representation in hospitals and health systems in the United States. The organization was created with the goal of developing a future workforce of highly talented Latino/Latina healthcare executives who can meet the challenge of delivering and improving healthcare in our diverse communities. “As HMA grows in scope and reach, at the center of our work is serving the ever-changing healthcare needs of all individuals and communities. With that focus, we are excited to engage with NALHE in order to connect with healthcare leaders representing diverse communities and populations,” said Doug Elwell, chief executive officer. With a shared goal of aligning talented healthcare executives with opportunities to drive improvements in healthcare across the spectrum, HMA and NALHE will partner to share research, develop and explore thought leadership, and engage in networking and mentoring for colleagues in both organizations with an end goal of creating better systems to serve diverse healthcare needs. NALHEs President and Chair, Monica Vargas Mahar, FACHE added, “We are thrilled to partner with HMA, and we are inspired by HMA’s commitment and dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It has never been more important to collaborate as healthcare leaders and share insight and exchange knowledge and experiences to break down diversity barriers in order to provide equitable healthcare for the diverse populations we serve.” NALHE is presenting their fourth annual Leadership Summit, a premier event with a robust agenda of healthcare leaders focused on issues including Latina pay disparities, Latino mental health, innovation in telehealth, and COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on Latino communities. In addition, the event will feature networking and career building opportunities including resume review, mock interviews, and expert panel discussions. HMA is joining the effort as an event sponsor and contributor.
