During CHA's annual Membership Assembly — this year held virtually June 8 — CHA members elected three new board members and installed new board leadership.

The new members are:

  • John A. Capasso, executive vice president of Trinity Health of Livonia, Michigan, and president of Trinity Health's continuing care division.
  • Sr. Sharon Euart, RSM, canon lawyer and executive director of the Resource Center for Religious Institutes in Silver Spring, Maryland.
  • Bob Sutton, president and chief executive of Avera Health of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Each was elected to a three-year term.

During the membership assembly, members also named Dr. Rhonda Medows the association's chairperson elect. She is president of population health management for Providence St. Joseph Health of Renton, Washington.

Two board members' terms ended: Michael Slubowski and Karen Reich. Slubowski is president and chief executive of Trinity Health, a past CHA board chair and outgoing speaker of the membership assembly for the association. Reich is chief executive and system senior services executive for Bon Secours St. Petersburg Health System of St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Membership Assembly also included the installation of Julie Manas as CHA board chair. Her term officially begins with the start of the fiscal year on July 1. She is president of Ascension St. Vincent's North Region. With her installation, outgoing Board Chair Kevin Sexton becomes speaker of the membership assembly. He is the retired president and chief executive of Holy Cross Health of Silver Spring, Maryland.
