Message from Your ACHE Regent - Spring 2016

Message from Your ACHE Regent
Spring 2016

So far, 2016 has been a great year.  All four North Carolina Chapters began the year with a lot of momentum and plans.  Thanks to the leaders in 2015 for a successful year.  Many thanks to Joann L. Spaleta, FACHE, Greater Charlotte chapter, for continuing to serve as President for an additional year.
I would like to thank Oscar R. Aylor, FACHE; Jay T. Briley, FACHE; Derrick B. Billups, FACHE; Neil Kinard, FACHE; Vivian Langley; Charles F. Mantooth Jr. FACHE; Brent W. Shive, FACHE; Joann L. Spaleta, FACHE; J.G. Stanley; Lynda Stanley, FACHE and David T. Sumner, FACHE for serving on my Regents Advisory Council last year.  You made my year much more productive and ensured our HEN received the attention it needed. 

On Feb. 19, 2016, I had the privilege of presenting Regents Awards to four very deserving individuals.   Congratulations to:
Lee Isley, PhD, FACHE - Senior Leader Award.  His contributions to rural healthcare have been phenomenal in North Carolina.   Not only is he active in ACHE, he is very active in his community, with the NCHA and AHA.

Phyllis Wingate, FACHE – Diversity Award.  She serves as a great role model for minorities.  Her leadership journey has been a very non-traditional one; one that provides a wonderful example for young, minority leaders who may face adversity along their way. 

Warren G. McDonald, PhD - HEN.  Dr. McDonald provides a tremendous opportunity in learning for young adults looking for careers in healthcare through Methodist University.  With a focus on developing leaders for rural communities, he is a collaborator, supporter and coach.   He is actively engaged in leadership of the Sandhills chapter.

Jeffrey Simms - HEN.  As an educator and counselor at UNC-Chapel Hill, he ensures a great educational experience on campus and in the real world.  He seeks opportunities to open doors for young leaders.  His energy is infectious. 

I am blessed to get to work with each of these leaders on many different issues.  Please congratulate and thank each of them for their contributions to healthcare leadership. 

Joann Anderson, FACHE
North Carolina Regent
