Dear UHE Members,
I’m going to borrow a line from the infamous Austin Powers and say, “Allow myself to introduce….myself.” I am Kevin Johnson, CEO of Mountain View Hospital in Payson, and I am just beginning my two-year term as president of the Utah Healthcare Executives (UHE). I have served for the past year as president-elect, and have had the privilege of working closely with our now past president (and current Regent), Bob Cash. I would like to be the first to publically thank Bob for his talented leadership and for the time and effort he has put into running our professional organization over the last few years. I have some big shoes to fill, and I am grateful that Bob will continue to be involved over the next year as past president.
These are exciting times to be involved in the field of Healthcare Administration. The need to continue to improve the quality and reliability of our care processes, while striving to reduce the overall cost of healthcare to our communities, will require exceptional leadership now and into the future. UHE has the opportunity and the responsibility to be an influence for the good of our current membership of healthcare leaders, and to be actively involved in mentoring our future leaders. Our chapter is financially sound. We have a very capable Board of Directors, with strong chairs of each of our committees and subcommittees. And we have a solid strategic plan to guide our efforts.
I encourage each of you to get involved in areas where you can help us move our agenda forward. We would love to see greater attendance at our education and networking events. We would love to have you volunteer to serve on a committee. We welcome your candid feedback or input into how we can improve. I look forward to working with each of you and getting to know you better in my new role. Thank you for your efforts in making our Utah healthcare system one of the best in the nation.
Kevin A. Johnson, FACHE
