Hoins Graduates from NHA Leadership Institute

Patrick Hoins, facilities director at Jefferson Community Health & Life, was one of 37 graduates of the Nebraska Hospital Association Leadership Institute Class XV during NHA’s 91st Annual Convention Awards Banquet. The banquet was held on Oct. 24 at Embassy Suites Omaha-La Vista Hotel & Conference Center in La Vista.

The NHA Leadership Institute, which has nearly 400 alumni, is a 10-month intensive leadership development program that is geared toward providing middle management and up-and-coming leaders within Nebraska member hospitals with the necessary skills to become exceptional leaders.

Participants in the intensive leadership development program completed 40 hours of instruction and training, individual development planning, personality assessments, feedback exercises and management coaching. The NHA Leadership Institute is a partnership between the NHA and expert faculty from Bellevue University.

They also engaged in a variety of leadership-oriented topics, including building a foundation of leadership, using 360-degree assessments for improved leadership, working with conflict, analyzing performance issues, personality traits in the workplace, coaching for improved performance, leading across the generations, leading teams and succession management.

“We are very proud of this year’s graduates of the NHA Leadership Institute as they have demonstrated a desire and commitment to becoming exceptional health care leaders for Nebraska,” said NHA President Laura J. Redoutey. “It’s a credit to the commitment of our participants and the excellent work performed by our partner, Bellevue University.”
