NAHSE places its origin as far back as the early 1930’s, when a group of black health executives formed what was then called the National Hospital Association (NHA), an affiliate of the National Medical Association (NMA). In 1936, a meeting of all “Negro hospital executives” was called and held at Lincoln Hospital in Durham, NC. At that meeting, the NHA was renamed the National Conference of Hospital Administration (NCHA). Dr. Albert W. Dent was named Chairman and Mr. John Procope was named Secretary-Treasurer. After several changes in leadership, the Conference’s activities were limited to one informal meeting held in conjunction with the annual AHA meeting. In 1968, NAHSE was formed and Mr. Everett W. Fox was named the first President.
