Leadership

 

Turnover among hospital CEOs was 18 percent in 2016, the same as in the prior two years, but remains among “the highest rates calculated in the last two decades,” according to the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).

The Federation of American Hospitals (FAH) has largely remained silent on ongoing Republican-led efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including the recently passed American Health Care Act (AHCA). The group has now weighed in on the legislative battle, offering its “core principles” to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.

Healthcare executives believe the shift to value-based care and risk-sharing models will be transforming the industry within the next few years, according to a survey published by Lazard.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Scott Gottlieb, MD, as the new commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), bringing the former deputy commissioner back to lead the agency. 

The 2017 meeting of the American Hospital Association (AHA) led off with an unsurprising topic: the legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
