2022 HSSF Executive Conference

We’re back. In-person. At UCLA. And now, remotely, too! Join us!

Our theme: Making Champions. We’ll explore the ways support services leaders can spark success for their work teams, health systems, communities, and themselves. 

Meet your support services colleagues in LA, or online

Join us in-person October 26 and 27, or online for select sessions on October 26 for the 15th HSSF Executive Conference, the only gathering exclusively for leaders of support services departments at the nation’s top hospitals – and our first on the West Coast! UCLA Health, #5 on the US News’ 2022-2023 Honor Roll, will be our host, sharing how their support services team underpins the system’s impressive performance. We’ll also hear from other HSSF member organizations such as Johns Hopkins, Keck Medicine of USC, UCHealth, UC Irvine Health, and more. 

We’re grateful that COVID’s retreat has enabled us to meet again in-person. Our interactive sessions are designed to make the most of being together. Engage in sessions revealing gold standard practices and benchmarks in environmental services, food and nutrition, patient escort, sustainability, staff management, workload planning, and more. You'll have plenty of time for networking between. Rest assured that we will follow appropriate health safety protocols, whatever they may be at the time of the event. 

But our members told us many of their hospitals and health systems are dealing with financial pressures, and are discouraging travel. So we created a Remote Option. Participate from wherever you want. Get a conference room and tune in with your co-workers.

HSSF members can attend for free. And, as a sweetener for non-members, we’re including Individual Membership in the conference registration fee. You may cancel for any reason with 100% refund until October 15.
