ACHE National News - Winter 2013

Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE, Named New ACHE President/CEO

The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) has named Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE, its new president and chief executive officer. Bowen, 57, will assume the role May 13, 2013.

Bowen has served as ACHE’s executive vice president and chief operating officer since 2003. She joined the ACHE staff in 1992 as director, Government Relations. In 1994 she was named vice president, Division of Administration, a role she held until 2000 when she left ACHE to assume the position of deputy executive director for the Society of Actuaries.

Board certified in healthcare management as an ACHE Fellow, Bowen has participated in numerous national organizations and committees. In addition, she has served in board leadership roles for the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education, the Institute for Diversity in Healthcare Management and the Association Forum of Chicagoland. Bowen is currently a Baldrige Executive Fellow. She is a Fellow of the American Society of Association Executives and a Certified Association Executive.

“I am tremendously honored to be selected for this role,” said Bowen. “I look forward to continuing ACHE's great history of preserving the prestige of the credential and delivering high caliber, relevant programs that help executives address the challenges they face. Healthcare is at a critical crossroads, and the work of our members in leading organizations through this transformation has never been more important to delivering patient care.”

Bowen succeeds Thomas C. Dolan, PhD, FACHE, CAE, upon his retirement after 22 years as ACHE’s president and chief executive officer.
