CHAMPS Prepares to Celebrate 100 Years of Healthcare Partnerships



Hospital AdvocacyEfforts to plan a year-long celebration marking 100 years of hospital advocacy in Northeast Ohio and healthcare partnerships across the country have begun at The Center for Health Affairs and CHAMPS Healthcare. Formally organized in March of 1916, The Center has become known as the leading advocate for Northeast Ohio hospitals over the last century. As The Center's business affiliate, CHAMPS Healthcare consulting specialists strategically partner with more than 5,000 clients nationwide to create better systems by improving operational efficiencies, reducing business expenses and enhancing the quality of patient care. To celebrate the approaching 100th anniversary of the nonprofit hospital association and its business affiliate, plans are being made by a committee of staff members from both The Center and CHAMPS.

Celebrating 100 Years of Hospital Advocacy & Healthcare Partnerships

Initial plans for The Center for Health Affairs / CHAMPS Healthcare's 100th anniversary include efforts to celebrate the organizations' histories of hospital advocacy and healthcare partnerships, opportunities to give back to the community and an event that will bring together those who have been involved with the organizations over the years. The celebration has already kicked off with a 100 Days of Service initiative which launched in May. Additional projects are in the planning stages now and will continue to roll out this fall, with the final event slated to take place in the summer of 2016.
