Sponsor or Exhibit at CHA Events

CHA hosts conferences year-round that give providers of health care services and products the opportunity to meet face-to-face with hospital executive management. Our conferences and symposiums each have unique audiences including rural hospitals CEOs, medical rehabilitation experts, skilled nursing administrators, behavioral health care providers and emergency preparedness coordinators and their disaster planning teams.
