Letter from LACHE President Fall 2017
Coletta Barrett

I hope your Summer has  been filled with family and the opportunity to renew your spirit.   I’ve used the quote by Henry Ford:   Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success. Your Louisiana Chapter is making progress and has had a successful first half of 2017.   We had record attendance at the LHA Summer Conference ACHE program.  Dr. Jonathan Borroughs lecture on Medical Staff Alignment provided the opportunity for many of our member CEO’s to bring their Medical Staff Leadership.  Alignment, Accountability and Evidence Based interventions were key themes of his lecture.  Growth of membership is a major focus of ACHE and your Louisiana Chapter.  Dr. Bourroughs session provided an opportunity for us to highlight the professional education and development we have to offer our Medical Staff partners.  We are half way through the LaCHE fiscal year.  Many of our Regional Board Directors have stepped forward to lead and facilitate regional membership recruitment sessions.  Kudos to Region 3 Director Dr. Tiffany Love and Region 4 Director Davis Guy, FACHE for hosting successful local recruitment meetings.   We welcome Fernando Rivera, FACHE Director/CEO, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System to the LaCHE Board of Directors as the Region 1 Board Director.  We are looking to host membership recruitment sessions in Regions 1 – Greater New Orleans and Region 2 – Greater Baton Rouge/North Shore before the end of 2017.  If you are interested in assisting with this effort, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the LaCHE Board of Director members. 


At the ACHE National Leadership Conference in Chicago earlier this month, the Louisiana Chapter received the Region 4 Diversity & Inclusion Award.  Our focus on Regional recruitment sessions were but one of the highlights in the nomination submitted by Louisiana Regent Michele Sutton, FACHE.  Our Fall Education Session will be on November 10th in Baton Rouge at the LHA Conference Center.  Our Annual meeting will be in Baton Rouge on November 30th at the Louisiana Culinary Institute https://lci.edu/.  Tim Mohon, Chair of the Community Impact committee has done a phenomenal job of planning this year’s social event for the La Chapter ACHE Annual Meeting.  Diane Yeates, FACHE and the Education Committee are working to identify top talent to present at the ACHE session for the LHA Winter Conference, January 30-31,2017. 


As you can see, we are well on our way to a successful 2017.  It will take ALL of us working together to achieve the goals set forth in the Multi Year Strategic Plan.  I look forward to working with each of you to insure a successful year.
