Mission and Vision Statement

The District Hospital Leadership Forum (DHLF) represents district and municipal hospitals throughout California. DHLF originated from the efforts of several public district hospital executive teams in an effort to address financial issues of importance related to public/municipal District hospitals. DHLF strives to promote concepts and analyze options that support public district/municipal hospital interests, while providing expert leadership and advocacy in California and federal political realms. The Forum’s specific mission is to improve district/municipal hospital access to public funding opportunities in both the short term and in the long term.

The Forum’s on-going objectives range from maintenance of reimbursements under current and subsequent waivers. In addition, our goals are to ensure that the State of California recognizes that the district/municipal hospitals play a vital role in California’s health care delivery system and therefor also need to be a key participant in all hospital initiatives. The Forum’s Strategic Plan focuses on the approach; both from program development, to educating legislative representatives and regulators, to negotiating with the other hospital stakeholders.
