COVID-19: Webinars & Education

Virtual Executive Leadership Summit: In partnership with other state hospital associations and the Executive Speakers Bureau, the LHA is offering a six-part virtual Executive Leadership Summit to member hospital leaders and is waiving the registration fee to provide them with additional support during this pandemic. The series, which will run from June 25 through Sept. 3, includes nationally-recognized speakers who will offer thought-provoking insights and strategies to help hospital C-suite executives, vice presidents, directors and managers navigate the current- and post-pandemic environment. For more information and to register, visit the event webpage, or contact LHA AVP of Education Merle Francis at


In response to the current pandemic, the LHA Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to cancel the LHA Annual Meeting & Summer Conference that was scheduled for July in Orange Beach, Alabama. While we look forward to important education and networking opportunities every year, we know that our members are extremely focused on caring for patients and their communities. In addition, we expect that Louisiana will continue social distancing in summer and fall, and protecting the health and safety of our members, employees, families and friends is our first priority. If you made a payment to the LHA, your current conference registration will be refunded without penalty in the same manner that the payment was made. If you made hotel reservations, no action is necessary. The Perdido Beach Resort will cancel all reservations and refund any deposits. There is no need to call the hotel as this only delays its response.


To fully support our hospital members during these challenging times, the LHA has transitioned many of its in-person events to virtual events for the remainder of 2020 and is providing most of these valuable learning opportunities to hospital staff at little or no cost. The LHA is offering the following webinars:
