The Importance of Diversity within Healthcare Leadership
Maj Charlotte L. Hildebrand, FACHE, Deputy Commander of Administration, US Army

 

As the professional membership society for healthcare executives, ACHE embraces diversity within the healthcare management field and formally recognizes that priority as both an ethical and business imperative. In general, diversity and initiatives that promote diversity improve the quality of the organization's workforce. More specifically within our organization, ACHE values and actively promotes diversity in its leaders, members, and staff because diverse participation can serve as a catalyst for improved decision making, increased productivity, and a competitive advantage.

 

In alignment with the ACHE Policy on Diversity, an inclusive environment that recognizes the contributions and supports the advancement of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, age, marital status sexual orientation, gender identity or disability enhances the quality of healthcare, improves hospital/community relations, and positively affects the health status of society. This priority is reflected in ACHE's various activities and initiatives, and locally within our Chapter. For example, we recently established a Diversity Committee as a Chapter priority this Summer and are actively seeking members. A panel discussion focused on Diversity in Healthcare Management is currently planned for 19 November at 6pm at Tripler Army Medical Center. If you are interested in the Diversity Committee or assisting with the Panel Discussion on November 19, please contact Charlotte Hildebrand at charlotte.l.hildebrand.mil@mail.mil.

 

If you are interested in learning more about the impact of diversity on healthcare executive decisions and marketplace strategies, please take a few minutes to listen to a recent Podcast from Modern Medicine. In an interview with Modern Healthcare's editorial program manager Maureen McKinney, retired CEO Alan Channing explains how Chicago's Sinai Health System recruited minority trustees (originally at 10-12% in 2004 when he took over). The Podcast shares Mr. Channing's advice that good CEOs know that their boards should reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.
