Supporting Healthcare Leaders throughout Ohio

Why is it Essential to Belong?

Healthcare Leaders Association of Ohio is a membership association of medical group practice managers, adminstrators, executives, and administrative professionals in Ohio.

Whether you are new to practice management or a seasoned veteran; whether you work in a small practice or large group, instead of doing it alone, HLAOH provides our members a network of like-minded professionals ready to share resources, tools, and ideas.

Membership in HLAOH is an investment in your profession, your professional success, and your practice's success. Our member-led association puts our members first. We strive to provide timely, relevant, and valuable resources while giving you an opportunity to benefit from the advice and knowledge of other healthcare leaders across the state.

No one may be denied membership because of race, sex, religion, color or creed.  


Membership Year

Our membership year is calendar-based and runs from February 1 - January 31 annually. Membership renewal begins by December 15 each year. Dues renewal payments must be made by January 31 to remain in good-standing.

Healthcare Leaders Association of Ohio does not pro-rate member dues based on the time of year you join. First year members or renewing members who miss the January 31 deadline pay the full membership dues fee, which also covers the cost of processing.
