Regent’s Message

Message from Your ACHE Regent
Winter 2017

My term as Regent for New Jersey – Northern ends at ACHE Congress in March 2017. Three years have flown by very quickly. Michael J. McDonough, DMH, FACHE, Associate Teaching Professor in Health Services Administration at Rutgers University, has been elected as my successor. Please join me in wishing him the best in his ACHE leadership role.

A special thank you to the Regent Advisory Council members and the ACHE-NJ board who have assisted me over the past three years. These teams worked on Higher Education Network visits, student membership recruitment, building committee structure, developing programs to support and assist members to advance to fellow status, developing an early careerist network, increasing and strengthening educational programs and enhancing membership programs.

The ACHE Breakfast and Awards Program was held on January 20, 2017 with one hundred and thirty-six attendees. Christine C. Winn, FACHE, ACHE Governor for District 1, spoke on “Leading Transformation – The Value of ACHE Membership”.

Congratulations again to the 2017 Regent’s Award recipients:

  • Elizabeth A. Ryan, ESQ – Lifetime Careerist
  • Philip J. Driscoll, Jr., FACHE – Senior Careerist
  • Paula A. Gutierrez – Early Careerist
  • Anne M. Donoghue – Business Partner

It has been an honor and privilege to serve you as Regent. I look forward to my next journey on the ACHE Board of Governors starting in March 2017 and working to continue to advance our members and healthcare management excellence.

Hope to see you at ACHE 2017 Congress of Healthcare Leadership.

Thank you for your support and participation in the American College of Healthcare Executives.
