SONAR meets bi-monthly, the last Friday of the month, with meetings held at the McKinley Education Center in North Platte. (If a holiday falls on the last Friday we will schedule another meeting date).
Annual membership fees are $100.00 per facility. Members are encouraged to bring others from their facility to the meetings when the subject matter pertains to their area of interest. If you are interested in becoming a member please click here for the registration form.
Safety Healthcare Conference
This conference is held annually in North Platte. Every hospital, a large number of medical clinics and nursing homes in the state is invited to attend. We cover topics that our attendees have identified and bring in a variety of vendors for attendees to visit with, see new products, and discuss need to know issues.
