KHA's Vice President of Government Relations Sarah S. Nicholson announced
her retirement today. She has been a dedicated member of the KHA staff for
over 38 years. Throughout her entire career here, she has worked tirelessly
advocating at the state and federal levels to protect and advance Kentucky
The entire KHA staff and membership will miss working with Sarah, but we
know she is excited to enjoy her retirement with her family – especially
her grandchildren. We wish Sarah all the best on her new adventure.
Sarah’s final day with KHA will be later this year.
Kim Dees will be leaving the KHA staff at the end of June upon mutual agreement with KHA President Mike Rust. Dees has served for nine years as KHA’s Vice President for Health Professions. The loss of anticipated grant funding from an American Apprenticeship Initiative earlier in the year and dissolution of the Workforce Consortium last year eliminated funding support for the position. At the same time, Dees was investigating other opportunities she hopes to pursue that may continue to offer her the opportunity to interact with KHA members and nursing leadership, both in hospitals and universities.
Various responsibilities previously undertaken by Dees will be assigned to other staff.
