From the Desk of the KAHCE President

Judy Corzine, FACHE

Spring was the time of my last newsletter article. In it, I indicated that I was getting prepared to attend ACHE’s Congress in Chicago which was March 26 through 29. Congress was a great opportunity to get a better understanding of the educational capabilities of KAHCE and the vision for the future. One of the highlights for me was having lunch with the 7 students who we sponsored so they could attend the event. You will see reports of their experience at the KAHCE event elsewhere I our newsletter.

KAHCE also has the ability to put on great educational events. The Patient Centered Care in Modern Times event was on April 26. I really enjoyed how the presenters represented both the large and small healthcare organizations and provided guidance that could benefit any size facility. The KCLPC (Kansas City Local Program) event on May 5 had great attendance and unique perspectives on the differences in workforce members. I had never thought about the fact that baby boomers probably want private offices but that GenX would like the fellowship of cubicles or just open office spaces.

Summer has come early this year and from an administrative perspective, and work on member retention and recruitment has arrive with it. ACHE is once again offering special programs to encourage members to renew their membership. My hope is, however, that you are getting great value from your membership and don’t need special reminders to renew. If there are changes that KAHCE could implement to make the organization more beneficial to you, please let me know. I hope you all participated in the ACHE survey that was distributed in May, as that is another way we gain insight for opportunities for improvement.

Fall will be here before we know it with our annual meeting on September 5 and another great educational session that day. We also participate in the KHA Annual Convention and Trade Show.  Our booth is number 328.  Stop by, say hello and register to win a tablet!
