The TORCH Annual Conference & Trade Show is known nationally as a premier source of quality education and networking opportunities for rural health care leaders and decision-makers. As always, we invite TORCH-Members and all other rural health stakeholders to come and be part of one of the largest education conferences in the country dedicated solely to the needs and issues facing rural and community hospital CEOs, executives, trustees and staff.
Our theme for this year is ‘Taking Rural Healthcare in a New Direction.’ The evolving landscape of rural health care is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate. It requires knowledge, data, vigilance and collaboration. As hospitals continue to deal with pressing issues related to reimbursement, workforce, technology and quality, we must work together to find the best route to future viability. The TORCH Annual Conference & Trade Show will explore many of these new directions in order to help guide rural hospital executives, trustees and other stakeholders toward financial and operational success.
Of course, our number one goal is to make this your best conference experience all year long. All the knowledgeable professionals that are invited to speak and represent their companies are here to provide you with the skills and advice you need, before you need it. Best of all, they’re all here in one place, which saves you time and money. Never has protecting and preserving health care in your community been more simple or important. Please plan to be a part of TORCH’s largest event, dedicated exclusively to rural and community hospital administration, finance, education and advocacy. Come prepared to learn, network and map out the path to success in the months and years ahead.
