ACHE of Iowa President Message


Dear ACHE of Iowa Members,

As we near the end of 2017, the ACHE of Iowa Board and I would like to say thank you for your commitment to our chapter and the field of healthcare leadership. Your leadership makes a difference locally and nationally, as we all work collectively to improve our healthcare delivery system.

We hope you’ve had the opportunity to attend one of our education events this past year and network with colleagues from around the state. A big thanks to our Education and Program Planning committee chaired by Tim Chwirka of UnityPoint – St. Luke’s Hospital and co-chaired by Bobbi Bentz of Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. ACHE of Iowa is committed to providing enough face-to-face credits to help members advance to Fellow or recertify. Stay tuned for more exciting events in 2018.


Happy holidays!


Timothy J. Ahlers, FACHE

Chief Financial and Operating Officer

UnityPoint Health – Dubuque
