September 24 & 25, 2024 | Columbus, Ohio


The OCHCH Annual Conference & Trade Show is the largest gathering of home care and hospice professionals in Ohio, attracting hundreds of attendees and exhibitors. You’ll make important professional contacts and gather vital information that will impact your bottom line and enhance quality of care for those in need.

The 2023 Conference was a sold out event! We were totally humbled by the incredible enthusiasm from Ohio’s home care and hospice community that made this gathering so special. We’re working hard to make the 2024 event even more memorable and meaningful.
