Leadership awards

Three major awards are presented at the Iowa Hospital Association Annual Meeting in recognition of significant achievement in hospital or health system administration and governance. Hospitals and health systems are encouraged to submit nominations for the outstanding leaders of their hospitals to the Iowa Hospital Association through Friday, June 14, 2024.
