2020 HSSF Executive Conference

Registration is open. No trains, planes, and automobiles this year.

Join us for the only gathering exclusively for leaders overseeing EVS, food and nutrition services, patient transport, facilities, and other non-clinical departments. Participate October 28 and 29 from 12:30 to 5:30 EDT from the comfort of your desk or couch.  

MedStar Health, a 10-hospital system in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, will be our online host, sharing in-depth their practices and innovations. We’ll also hear from 20+ leaders from other health systems. You’ll be able to connect with colleagues from around the country.

 start-stop-continue 2020 has been quite a year, and it’s not over yet! COVID, changing patient care models, and cost pressures have rocked our worlds, and there’s no turning back. So this year’s theme is START-STOP-CONTINUE. What have we learned? What are we planning to start, stop, and continue doing?


Topics will include:

  • Women in support services leadership
  • Lessons learned and best practices from COVID
  • Infection prevention and EVS
  • Boosting HCAHPS scores
  • Innovations in food and nutrition
  • Staffing and training practices (including a novel application of simulation techniques)

Return to this site in the coming days for more details.

Sean Shapert, MedStar's VP EVS, Laundry and Linen, has assembled a team of support services and virtual event management professionals to make this much more than a run-of-the-mill webinar. It will be a fast-paced event professionally produced in multiple formats, including live video streams, interviews, and panels, but also enabling interactive sessions, 1-to-1 messaging and meetings, breakouts, and visits to exhibitor booths. Recordings will be available to registrants after the event. Questions? Contact us
