President's Message
CVHEG President: John W. Sharpe, MSPT, MBA, FACHE

Hello CVHEG Membership Community! It is indeed hard to believe that we are three quarters through 2020, a year that has disrupted our normal operational processes to a more stressful social distancing new normal and constant unknown challenges in this new way of providing quality healthcare.

Typically, the Q3 President’s message usually highlights many of the Chapter’s accomplishments and the benefits provided to our membership during the past year however, the year 2020 has been far from normal as we all have been enduring not only a global pandemic but also experiencing social turmoil sparked by enduring racial and social inequities throughout the Nation. As healthcare leaders, we recognize both these are public health challenges and require our urgent attention, resources and determination in resolving them.

I realize we have all been affected by this crisis; it is critical that we recognize that our collective support for each other, our institutions and community will provide the resilience and sustenance needed to overcome and withstand this pandemic. The little things and simple acts we do each day with grace, empathy, compassion, understanding and support go a long way toward having a positive and optimistic outlook toward our families, friends, colleagues and patients in helping us to heal, persevere and recover during these challenging times.

As your President, I am saddened to not meet the established goals (prior to the pandemic) or provide the much-needed benefits to our CVHEG members during 2020. This is obviously not how I had envisioned leading the CVHEG community in providing the utmost in beneficial education, networking, development and overall guidance to our valued members. The disappointment at missing out on various activities cancelled by COVID-19 and the challenges to maintain engagement with the CVHEG community while difficult, we were able to provide a few “first” time educational opportunities.

CHEG was able to work in collaboration with the Triangle Healthcare Executive Fellows (THEF) and the Greater Charlotte Healthcare Executive Group (GCHEG) to share their ACHE Qualified educational programs and their robust Board of Governors Exam review program in which CVHEG members were invited to participate. This partnership also provided CVHEG with opportunities to participate in D & I discussion on Racial Disparities and Social Inequity educational panels for F-2-F education hours provided by one of their sponsors. In addition, CVHEG was also able to partner with National Capital Healthcare Executives (NCHE) so our members would be able to participate in several of their ACHE qualified education programs. Coming in 2021, CVHEG has partnered with NCHE to offer additional BOG Exam review programs open to both chapters. The CVHEG Board of Directors (BOD) continues to meet virtually and plans are underway to provide F-2-F education programs in October, November and possibly December for a total of 3.0 to 4.5 F-2-F hours.

In closing, I am grateful for to have had the opportunity to serve as your President and work with a very dedicated, enthusiastic and passionately committed BODs and Committee Directors. However, I am even more honored to be a small piece of a membership that continues to stay active, engaged and appreciates the value we did our best to provide during these unwavering times.  Please remember CVHEG is your local Chapter and we are here to serve you; I invite you to share your thoughts, concerns, and potential opportunities to provide additional beneficial resources for our members with us. Please feel free to reach out to me or any of our other BODs.

Thank you and I am hopeful we will be able to see each other (in-person) again, soon.

With my warmest regards.

John W. Sharpe, MSPT, MBA, FACHE

President, Central Virginia Healthcare Executives Group (CVHEG)
