Regent Award Honors Professionalism and Education

Noting her contributions to the strategic initiatives of ACHE – membership, knowledge, career advancement, leadership and service excellence – Carol Sinclair of the Maine Hospital Association was honored as the Maine Regent’s Award recipient at the annual MHA winter conference in Bethel.

Sinclair was recognized for her long term contribution to healthcare knowledge, career advancement and service excellence through her 14 years at MHA. During her career there, she has consistently delivered quality healthcare programs which both educate and entertain. Also consistently, through Carol’s involvement in more than 400 events during her years at MHA, her attention to detail and to service excellence result in an exceptional experience for all those in attendance.

Each year Regents have the privilege of honoring two individuals who contribute to healthcare leadership.  ACHE provides support to Regents in developing criteria in promoting and selecting deserving recipients who frequently are selected from those professionals who support and are actively engaged in ACHE activities and in their local affiliated chapters.

ACHE also encourages and supports selecting professionals who may not fit the “young careerist” or “senior professional” category through the Regent’s Award. This allows Regents to take into consideration individuals who contribute to the strategic initiatives of ACHE of membership, knowledge, career advancement, leadership and service excellence – people like Carol Sinclair.
