Justin Mueller earns hospital certification
Five hospital trustees from across the state were recognized for earning certification through the Minnesota Hospital Association’s trustee certification program. The comprehensive certification process prepares hospital trustees to effectively meet the growing demands of serving on a hospital board and to be strong health care and community leaders.
Participating from Cook County North Shore Hospital in Grand Marais was Justin Mueller.
Hospital trustees received training on current health care trends, governance best practices, ethics, government regulations, patient safety, and quality. Participants underwent 35 hours of coursework, making Minnesota’s initiative the most comprehensive in the nation.
“In Minnesota, more and more hospital trustees are formally preparing themselves to address the often-complicated issues facing hospitals and health systems today,” said Lawrence Massa, MHA president and CEO.
“With so many changes in health care policy and practice — especially under federal and state health care reform — hospital trustees want this kind of support to be strong leaders in their organizations,” he added. “And earning this certification demonstrates a trustee’s commitment to the patients and communities the hospital serves.”
