Leadership GHA

The Leadership GHA Program is temporarily on hiatus due to public health guidance limiting group in-person meetings. As such, nominations are currently not open at this time. We look forward to restoring this popular and invaluable program as soon as possible.  

Leadership GHA is a seven-month intensive, hospital leadership development program. It is designed to identify, develop and inspire new leaders in health care throughout the state of Georgia. The program provides education on the key issues that make up Georgia’s health care system. The program includes professional workshops, conferences, panel discussions and field trips to a variety of hospitals and health systems throughout the state. Participants will expand their professional networks yet remain in a position to add value to their organizations.


GHA-member CEOs and their nominated hospital employees are eligible and encouraged to participate. Class participants usually include CEOs, vice presidents, department directors, government relations directors and managers. Classes are a mix of senior and mid-level professionals from hospitals of all sizes located in all areas of the state.


Class members must be nominated by GHA-member hospital CEOs. Click here for the nomination form.


A one-time tuition fee of $2,500 will be billed to the nominating CEO’s attention upon acceptance of the nominee on or around May 15. Tuition covers program related expenses such as speakers, meals, A/V expenses, materials, group-related (bus) transportation during site visits, etc. Tuition does not cover hotel lodging, individual transportation (mileage) to & from the programs.
