Indiana Hospital Association President Doug Leonard will retire next June, the association announced yesterday. President since 2007, Leonard has guided IHA through the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0, among other major transformations in health care. He also strengthened IHA’s Indiana Patient Safety Center and launched several patient safety campaigns. “Doug has been an effective leader for Indiana hospitals through tremendous change,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “Whether guiding the field during health care reform or spearheading major initiatives to improve quality and transparency, he has focused on what’s important – what’s best for the patients and communities that hospitals serve.”
