Executive Members

IHES has recruited the finest, nationally-recognized leaders in healthcare administration from across the country to assist our Corporate Members. Handpicked for their excellent reputations, success, and innovative leadership, the Executive Members represent hundreds of years of collective experience in guiding local, regional, and national healthcare systems.

Perhaps their most sterling quality, however, is their selfless willingness to share this experience with the IHES Corporate Members, who have access to Executive Members for the purpose of improving their products and services to the overall benefit of the industry.
