How Alliance for the Arts Memberships Impact Children
A health care executive in the state of Utah, Greg Angle oversees 11 hospitals within the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) Mountain Division. Also engaged in his community, Greg Angle formerly served on the board of the Alliance for the Arts.
A member-based organization, the Alliance for the Arts raises funds to benefit the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza and its mission to become a principal cultural center for the performing and visual arts. Membership proceeds support the Kids and the Arts program and the organization’s grant service.
The Alliance for the Arts’ flagship outreach initiative, Kids and the Arts, funded by 25 percent of membership dues, exposes children from underserved communities to musicals, plays, and ballets. Kids get to visit the Fred Kavli Theatre to see live performances. The program was created with the idea that greater access to the arts can improve academic success.
Alliance performance grants provide opportunities for young people to share their talents on stage. Each year, the organization opens an application process to local performing arts groups to decide which productions will be presented on stage at the Scherr Forum and Fred Kavli Theatre. Through a grant, a child can experience what it is like to perform in a professional venue.
The AHA’s Community Connections Initiative
As the president of HCA Mountain Division, Greg Angle is responsible for the general operations of 11 hospitals in Alaska, Idaho, and Utah. An active member of his industry, Greg Angle is involved with a variety of professional organizations, including the American Hospital Association.
Serving all types of healthcare networks and hospitals and their patients, the American Hospital Association (AHA) maintains a number of advocacy initiatives. One such initiative is Community Connections. The project was started by the AHA with the intention of underscoring and celebrating the work that hospitals around America do, along with the important role they play in their communities. In order to do this, the Association gathers case studies from its partners that demonstrate the different community needs that hospitals are filling.
The Association recognizes that hospitals not only treat the body, they also make their communities healthier. Hospital benefits go beyond just the walls of the hospital to include bringing back-to-school immunizations, free clinics, and other resources to local residents. The AHA supports the continued provision of empathetic and unbiased care to patients regardless of their insurance and financial status and uses Community Connections to help hospitals further their wellness and prevention activities.
A Basic Introduction to Practice Development
Possessing more than three decades of corporate and multisystem healthcare experience, Greg Angle is the president of HCA Mountain Division in Utah and is responsible for overseeing 11 hospitals in Alaska, Utah, and Idaho. Greg Angle expertly leverages his years of experience to help the HCA Mountain Division with everything from financial management to practice development.
Practice development is widely seen as the continuous process of developing cultures within hospitals that are focused on people and informed by facts. It is a process that is started by facilitators and is maintained by the active involvement of everyone at an institution and making practice development processes a central component of corporate strategy. Typically, practice development hopes to improve patient care by ensuring normal practice is based on research and to create a better working environment for all staff members.
Much of the research used for practice development focuses on specific areas, such as the enhancement of leadership skills, assessment of workplace changes, and improvement of team effectiveness. Additionally, the process of practice development itself utilizes a variety of methods and processes to accomplish the goal of improving hospital cultures, from appreciative inquiry and critical creativity to work-based learning. All methods used are supported by evidence and attempt to impact the lives of all types of individuals involved in the healthcare system.
North Ranch Country Club’s Championship-Level Golf Courses
Holding a master of health services administration from Arizona State University, Greg Angle serves as the president of HCA Mountain Division, a Utah-based healthcare system with hospitals in Utah, Alaska, and Idaho. In his free time, Greg Angle enjoys golfing and he is a member of the North Ranch Country Club.
The North Ranch Country Club is committed to creating a welcoming atmosphere and unique member experience and offers a wide range of entertainment options. However, it is best known for its championship-level golfing and features 27 holes split between the following three courses:
1. Valley course. Measuring 3,300 yards, the Valley is perfect for golfers who enjoy making accurate, well-thought-out shots. The greens throughout the course are small and surrounded by a number of trees, so careful hitting is important.
2. Lakes course. Offering a well-bunkered green, the Lakes course starts with a rather difficult hole and provides a decent mix of simple and challenging holes. Golfers on this course must navigate everything from uphill greens and changing winds to long doglegs.
3. Oaks course. Made up of holes that seem easier than they actually are, the Oaks course continues providing golfers with a bit of a challenge. There are a few bunkers, trees, and slopes through the course, but it is a good choice for a challenging, yet relaxing, game.

The UHA encourages both members and non-members to take the pledge to make inroads in these three areas within a year. Pledged hospitals are also asked to provide the AHA with quarterly updates about their progress toward these goals and spread the word to others. Since the campaign was launched, more than 700 hospitals around the United States have signed the pledge.

To ensure both performers and patrons are respected at each performance, the Civic Arts Plaza does maintain a few rules. Patrons bringing children must keep in mind that some performances require silence to be enjoyed fully, so small children may not be suitable audience members. Additionally, booster seats or strollers are not allowed in the theater. Beyond children, patrons that arrive late are seated at the discretion of the staff or artist, and any patrons that leave during the performance cannot be readmitted until intermission or the end of the performance.
The Civic Arts Plaza also forbids the use of cameras, recorders, and other electronics. Before the start of each performance, guests must turn off their cell phones and alarm watches. Further, any patrons that bring in a camera or recorder may be removed from the theater. Such devices must be checked with the house manager prior to entering. All Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza theaters are also tobacco- and smoke-free zones. However, the plaza does have designated smoking areas outdoors.

This grant provides opportunities for both performers and viewers by showcasing unique performances by local artists.
