Regent's Corner

Kevin J. Miller, FACHE

This is my last communication to you in my role as Regent and I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me the privilege to represent you, as your Regent, for the last three years.

I gained so much more than I gave during this experience. Through this office, I have met many new friends and colleagues. I have been so impressed by the membership of ACHE and its local chapters. You are an unparalleled group. You’re intelligent, hard-working, committed and professional.

The leadership of the chapters never fail to give everything they have to optimize this association for the benefit of its members. And, they do so without thought of personal recognition or thanks.

As I’ve met the student members, I am confident in the fact that our legacy will be honored by these young people who have so much to offer and are so value-driven.

More immediately, I am leaving the office as Regent knowing that I am handing the reins over to an individual for whom I have had the utmost respect, personally and professionally, for many years. Janice G. Murphy, FACHE, President of Fairview Hospital and Lakewood Hospital in Cleveland, is everything you would want in a leader and Regent, and more. I have no doubt that she will serve you exceptionally well.

In closing, please allow me, once again, to simply say thank you.
