Oklahoma hospitals have faced many challenges in 2020. Whether it be the COVID-19 pandemic or passing Medicaid Expansion by a vote of the people, our strength and success have come from collaboration. Even as we face continued challenges ahead, we will celebrate this team effort with “Together We Can,” our 2020 Virtual Convention & Trade Show. Take a look at the schedule below and the details available at the links.
