The 500-member Institute for Diversity in Health Management, founded eight years ago by several major healthcare associations, has decided to affiliate with the American Hospital Association. The institute's board voted to partner with the larger AHA to ensure strength and stability for the institute. The affiliation will create additional opportunities to assist healthcare executives in hiring healthcare professionals with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, said Raymond Grady, president and CEO of Evanston (Ill.) Hospital. Grady was elected chairman of the institute's board today. -- Patrick Reilly
