The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) Annual Convention is the largest gathering of healthcare professionals in Nebraska, bringing together hundreds to gain insight on leadership, new technology and industry trends, quality excellence and human motivation. Great Plains Communications is a proud member of the Nebraska Hospital Association and a sponsor of this year’s NHA Annual Convention.

The convention is being held at the Embassy Suites Omaha – La Vista Hotel & Conference Center. The theme for the event is “Voyage to Organizational Excellence,” focusing on exploring the choppy and sometimes tumultuous waters of healthcare reform implementation.

There will be over 100 exhibitors that supply Nebraska hospitals with the most cutting edge products and services. Hospital employees will have the opportunity to network with colleagues as well as gain new business contacts. Attendees will be provided with over 50 educational and inspirational learning sessions providing the latest trends, updates, innovations and best practices in healthcare.
