Made up of representatives from small and large hospitals, teaching facilities, and healthcare systems across the state, the OHA Board of Trustees brings together more than 1,900 members and 10 affiliated societies to create a vision for the future of Ohio’s healthcare environment. Typically meeting once a month, the Board is responsible for all business of the OHA and adopts policy for the organization.
“Chip is a tremendous advocate for hospitals and provides a great service to the OHA Board,” says Mike Abrams, President and CEO of OHA. “Chip’s skills, expertise, and ability to articulate policy positions in terms of the impact on the entire industry, rather than one faction of it, will allow him to serve with distinction.” OHA recently announced a new three-year strategic plan that will focus on advocacy, patient safety and quality, and economic sustainability.
A Board Trustee at Large since 2010, Hubbs has been an involved member, serving on multiple committees including the executive committee, compensation committee, nominating committee, taskforce for health transformation, and the 2011 OHA search committee to find the organization’s CEO. Additionally, he is a board member of the OHA Foundation for Healthy Communities.
