President's Message
Kevin Johnson, FACHE

Dear UHE Members,

Hello, friends. I guess, since you are reading this, that we all survived “Doomsday” or the end of the world according to the Mayan Calendar. Let me be the first to congratulate you! In all seriousness, I hope that 2012 was a wonderful year for each of you, full of happiness and prosperity.

With Congress and the president finding a way to avoid (or maybe better said, delay) the nation going over the fiscal cliff, we are off to an interesting start in 2013. There is a new deadline of March 1 for the sequestration of federal spending, and it is anticipated that by then they will need to raise the debt ceiling. With these issues looming, it is reasonable to expect that there will be further proposed spending cuts associated with any compromise on the part of the two branches of government. We can safely expect that our industry will continue to feel the pressure for cost cutting and health reform.

During these times of great change I hope that we will all renew our commitment to our fundamental purpose in healthcare: to preserve life and to improve the health of the patients that we serve. Through the associations we share within our chapter, we have the opportunity to share ideas and work collectively toward better outcomes and results. May we continually strive to collaborate in areas where it is appropriate, and to better prepare ourselves for reform through our education and networking events. There is strength in numbers, and I hope that our efforts as a chapter in 2013 will lead to a stronger, leaner and more agile healthcare system here in the great state of Utah. Thank you for all you do to support Utah Healthcare Executives.
