C. Duane Dauner, long­time pres­i­dent and CEO of the Cal­i­for­nia Hospi­tal As­so­ci­a­tion, is re­tir­ing at the end of 2018. A na­tion­wide search for his re­place­ment will be­gin in early Jan­uary. After his suc­ces­sor is hired, Dauner will re­main with the as­so­ci­a­tion as a con­sul­tant un­til Dec. 31, 2018. Dauner has led the Cal­i­for­nia Hospi­tal As­so­ci­a­tion since 1985. The or­ga­ni­za­tion is one of the largest hospi­tal as­so­ci­a­tions in the na­tion, rep­re­sent­ing more than 400 hos­pi­tals and health sys­tems.

Dauner pro­vided rec­om­men­da­tions to Congress and the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act and has been ac­tively in­volved in state-level health pol­icy re­form. In 2013, he helped launch the Hospi­tal Qual­ity In­sti­tute, a col­lab­o­ra­tion of Cal­i­for­nia hospi­tal as­so­ci­a­tions to im­prove qual­ity per­for­mance among providers. Most re­cently, Dauner and the CHA spear­headed and funded Propo­si­tion 52, a bal­lot ini­tia­tive that makes it harder for law­mak­ers to use Medi-Cal funds for any­thing other than their in­tended pur­pose. The mea­sure won in a land­slide.
