Town Hall Meetings

Every fall, the Texas Hospital Association invites member hospitals to participate in regional town hall meetings to learn more about Texas hospitals’ policy priorities and the political changes that THA anticipates seeing in the health care landscape.

This year, it’s more important than ever for Texas hospitals to remain connected and informed about the upcoming election, the 87th Texas legislative session, the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and other pertinent topics relevant to health care leaders serving in Texas hospitals.

While we cannot be together in-person, THA will facilitate these town hall meetings virtually. We encourage you to attend in your hospital’s respective region so THA can better understand the priorities and unique challenges your hospitals and health systems face.

All meetings will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hospital leaders will be sent the meeting link, which they can share with designees within their organization.

We look forward to seeing you (virtually) this fall!


Linda Srubar, executive assistant to THA’s president/CEO, 512/465-1002
