Town Hall Meetings
  • Join THA for a Town Hall Meeting

The Texas Hospital Association invites member hospitals to participate in an upcoming Town Hall meeting to hear the latest on Texas hospitals’ policy priorities and the political changes that are likely to influence the health care landscape.

In addition to policy and political updates, member hospitals will have the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and discuss industry challenges and other issues. THA encourages member hospitals’ key leadership and board members to participate in one of the San Antonio or El Paso meetings.

All meetings will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include lunch courtesy of the host hospital. Attendance is free but registration is required for meal and space planning.
