The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems today named as its next president and CEO Becky Hultberg, who currently serves as president and CEO of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association. She also is a member of the AHA Board of Trustees. Hultberg will assume the position in December to succeed Andy Davidson, who last year announced he would leave at the end of 2019 after 14 years at the helm. “As a nationally recognized leader in health care, Becky is the right choice to help OAHHS navigate the critical issues facing hospitals and health systems and accelerate the progress being made to advance care and services within our communities,” said OAHHS Board Chair Carol Bradley, senior vice president and chief nursing officer at Legacy Health. Prior to her current role, Hultberg served as Commissioner of the State of Alaska’s Department of Administration.
