The Illinois Hospital Association will lose its longtime leader at the end of 2009 when Kenneth Robbins retires as president. The IHAs board appointed an executive search committee to recommend a new president. Robbins, 67, has been with the IHA since 1976, starting first as general counsel and becoming president of the Naperville-based organization in 1983. In 2006, the latest year for which uniform figures were available from the Internal Revenue Service, Robbins ranked as the seventh most highly compensated executive in a healthcare association. Under Robbins tenure, the IHA has addressed comprehensive medical liability reform legislation, state laws on hospital billings and collections for the uninsured, according to a news release.
