Building for the Future: Mastering Succession Planning

September 21, 2023

Access the on-demand webinar here.

In today's rapidly evolving healthcare landscape, organizations face the critical challenge of ensuring a seamless transition of leadership as key individuals retire, move on, or face unforeseen circumstances or emergencies. Succession planning has not only become an indispensable strategic tool for health centers, empowering them to proactively identify, develop, and retain high-potential employees who can step into critical roles when needed, but it is also a required element for federally qualified health centers as per the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule (42 CFR 491.12(a)(3)).

Join us for this webinar where we will discuss concepts of effective succession planning and related regulatory requirements, as well as guide you through the process of developing a robust succession strategy for your organization.
