Medical center CEO named chair of hospital association
Gardnerville resident Susan Davila was recently named as chairwoman of Nevada Hospital Association.
Davila, who is chief executive officer of Carson Valley Medical Center, will serve a one-year term.
She will continue her current duties overseeing the operations of Carson Valley Medical Center’s hospital and affiliated physician clinics.
The association is the advocate for Nevada’s hospitals, health systems, communities and patients before legislative and regulatory bodies. Formally established in 1960 and incorporated in 1971, the NHA was created by hospital administrators to provide a unified forum for all types of hospitals to address such issues as reimbursement, worker’s compensation, professional liability and continuing education, among others.
Over time, the emergence of major issues such as marketplace health care, restrictive government payment policies, inadequate funding for indigent care, and manpower shortages, among others, have continued to pose formidable challenges to the health care system.
Davila says “Taking on this role at the Nevada Hospital Association will ensure our voices from the Carson Valley are heard at the local, state, and federal level. It’s such an honor to serve the healthcare community and work alongside my fellow peers in Hospital Administration and Healthcare Advocacy.”
Carson Valley Medical Center is a nonprofit medical facility that provides acute and ICU care, surgery, 24-hour emergency services, and outpatient services. A partnership of Barton Health and Renown Health, Carson Valley Medical Center’s mission is to promote the health and wellness of the Carson Valley.
