The Indiana Hospital Association is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors unanimously selected Brian Tabor, the association’s current executive vice president, as the next president of the organization beginning June of 2017. Tabor will succeed Doug Leonard, who will remain president until his retirement next June after serving as IHA’s president since 2007.
Tabor joined IHA in 2008 as vice president of government relations where he oversaw the association’s state and federal legislative initiatives and health policy development. In 2015, Tabor was promoted to executive vice president. That same year, Indiana Governor Mike Pence honored him with a Sagamore of the Wabash for his contributions to the Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0, an effort that has brought expanded health coverage for thousands of uninsured Hoosiers.
Tabor has worked for and around the Indiana General Assembly for 18 years. Prior to joining IHA, he served as a fiscal analyst for the Indiana State Senate and policy director in the Indiana House of Representatives. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in agricultural economics from Purdue University. He resides in Hendricks County with his wife, Dawn Brooks, Ph.D., and two daughters.
