Moving and Shaking Local Program Councils

Outreach Director, Jim Whitmire, FACHE

South Texas Chapter - American College of Healthcare Executives includes two active, making it happen Local Program Councils (LPCs). One is located in the Coastal Bend and the other in the Rio Grande Valley.

The Chair person in the Coastal Bend is Krystal O'Brien, MHA. She is located in Corpus Christi. She is Physician Business Consultant, Wellmed Medical Management, Inc;  Phone (361) 371-6440; Email: KrO'Brien@wellmed.net.

The Co-Chair in the RGV is Ricardo Flores, M.S., CCC-SLP, Rehab Manager, STHS-Outpatient Rehab (McAllen & Edinburg), phone (956) 971-5640,email: Ricardo.Flores@uhsrgv.com.

The other Co-Chair in the RGV is Luis Calderon, LVN, CDP, Regional Director of Business Development at ABRI Healthcare, office/cell phone (956) 624-4639, email: luis.calderon@abrihs.com.

The LPCs are preparing to break out from the COVID restrictions and get back to face to face activities.  Optimism reigns that the pandemic will subside and allow for relatively normal interactions.  Given this is the case, folks in the RGV and Coastal Bend will be provided opportunities for one or two Face-to-Face Educational events for 1.5 to 3.0 credits.  Thus ACHE requirements can be obtained locally, plus it is always good for  ACHE members and non-members to enhance their knowledge base. The opportunity for social networking is also a great benefit.  Additionally, the LPCs are planning to provide charitable volunteer activities (such as beach clean-up and food bank assistance) whereby folks can help the community while networking with each other and getting volunteer credits on their records.

The LPCs will be active in 2022. Folks in the LPC areas should avail themselves of these interaction opportunities. Also, please consider contacting the LPC Chairs and volunteering to be part of the planning and implementation committees for the various events. The more the merrier, plus you'll find it personally rewarding.
