Chief Operating Officer Network

Chief operating officers have a varied and complex role of leading the execution of strategies developed by the top management team. They also often are called upon during chief executive officer transitions.

The Missouri Hospital Association seeks to strengthen the relationships among COOs across the state; therefore, we committed resources to develop a Chief Operating Officer Network. We encourage all hospitals to participate in this networking group to build lasting relationships.

Mission Statement

Develop a resilient system of operations executives through networking and education with their peers and the Missouri Hospital Association.


Participants may include Missouri hospital chief operating officers, vice presidents of operations, senior vice presidents of operations or any other senior leader with operations duties.


Contact Dana Dahl at or 573-893-3700 to submit your interest. You will be placed on the network roster to receive communication about the group.

Networking and Education

Key activities of the group include an annual in-person meeting and email listserv to share pertinent research, best practices and innovative tools. Additionally, there will be periodic virtual touchpoints and an annual collaborative meeting with the Chief Medical Officer Group and Missouri Organization of Nurse Leaders.


An informal listserv will be utilized. If you are a member of the Network Group and would like to submit a question or topic to the listserv, email Dana Dahl. The question will be posted via Survey Monkey and results distributed to the network within two weeks.
