A MESSAGE FROM THE REGENT -- SPRING 2011

Kevin Roberts, FACHE

A couple of things for your information this quarter:

First, you have a unique opportunity to attend a full scale ACHE cluster this fall in Hawaii! This means that you can receive Category I credits and not have to get on a plane or stay in a hotel (unless you want to).  This occurs on August 22-25 at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa. There are two seminars:  August 22-23, "Are Medical Groups in Your Portfolio? Critical Factors to Manage Your Investment," and August 24-25, "Hospital of the Future: Strategies in an Era of Healthcare Reform." For more information or to register, go to the ACHE website.

Also, we have the Council of Regent Elections this fall. I've had the privilege to serve in this capacity and now it's time to give someone else a chance to learn and grow. The Hawaii/Pacific Regent role is a three year term and is a great way to become involved in ACHE, network in healthcare and beocme more active in your profession. If you're a Fellow, and wish to run, you must submit a letter of intent to ACHE by September 6, 2011. For more details contact Jennifer Connelly at (312) 424-9328. Feel free also to call me if you want to learn more about this role (808) 263-5142.

Aloha,

Kevin A. Roberts, FACHE
President and CEO,  Castle Medical Center
Regent, Hawaii/Pacific
