2019 HSSF Executive Conference: October 15-17


Dear Colleagues,
My team and I are honored to host the 2019 HSSF Executive Conference at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital located in St. Petersburg, FL. What we do on a daily basis greatly impacts the larger mission of providing high-quality care and an excellent patient experience. The Forum is an opportunity for us to learn from each other, enhance our hospital support services operations and ultimately make an impact on the patients and families we are privileged to serve. I look forward to seeing you in Florida in October!
