SPRINGFIELD –— Sam Skura, president of Baystate Medical Center and senior vice president of hospital operations for Baystate Health, has been elected to the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) board of trustees.

MHA’s board of trustees steers the direction of the association’s advocacy efforts on Beacon Hill and Capitol Hill. After three years of a destabilizing pandemic, the board’s immediate focus remains on rebuilding the health care workforce, resolving the capacity crisis and ushering in the next chapter of health care across Massachusetts.

“Sam has earned a stellar reputation as a leader and change-maker in his more than 25 years working on behalf of patients and health care organizations in Massachusetts,” MHA President and CEO Steve Walsh said in a statement. “Given his deep experience in hospital operations, culture-building and innovation, he will be an invaluable voice for our board — just as he is for the people of western Massachusetts.”
