Succession Planning in Non-Profit Healthcare Organizations

  • Suzanne Moss Richins
Chapter

Abstract

For the most part, succession planning in healthcare organizations was outsourced to the American College of Healthcare Executives for the non-clinical tract and for the American Organization of Nurse Executives for the nursing tract to the executive level. Many organizations conduct leadership training for first-time managers promoted to a managerial position. These training programs often run for one year, where the topics covered include regulatory and accreditation topics germane to management positions in hospitals. Other topics include capital and operating budgeting, human resource guidance, and risk management. These leadership programs provide an opportunity to meet other managers and leaders in the organizations, including the individuals responsible for these functions.
