The Nevada Hospital Association last week named as its new president and CEO Pat Kelly, who previously served as chief financial officer and vice president of shared services for the West Virginia Hospital Association. Kelly succeeds Bill Welch, who will serve as a consultant until he retires Dec. 31. 

“The NHA board of directors is pleased to introduce a leader of Pat’s caliber into our community to guide the Association,” said Mason Van Houweling, NHA board chair and CEO of University Medical Center. “Pat possesses the qualifications and expertise to grow the Nevada Hospital Association into an even greater, more successful, organization and to create a lasting impact on addressing health care issues in our state.”
