Who We Are

We are an association devoted to professionals who design, build, maintain, and operate hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities in the state of Minnesota.

Members include health care facility managers, engineers, architects, designers, constructors, infection control specialists, and others.

Minnesota has five individual regional chapters which make up the MHCEA. Membership to any of the five chapters automatically enrolls you into the MHCEA membership.

The MHCEA is one of five individual state chapters that make up the ASHE Region 6 group.

ASHE is a personal membership group of the American Hospital Association and is a trusted industry resource that provides education, regulatory guidance, networking, advocacy representation, and professional development for our members.

Virtual Spring Conference

Thursday, May 27 – Friday, May 28, 2021

Due to the far-reaching impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the MHCEA Executive Team has made the decision to transition the 2021 Spring Conference to a virtual event. Though we are disappointed the event will not continue in-person, we are excited to continue to offer a nontraditional approach to ensure our members maintain access to continued education. With many of our members unable to travel and/or attend events, a new and innovative solution was required for our association to continue with fulfilling its mission – to advance the development of effective hospital engineering in the healthcare institution. It is the hope of our Executive Team that this creative solution will bridge what could have been a gap in providing education to our members.
