Quarterly Update

From the Regent's Desk

Amanda Choudhary, MHA, MA, FACHE
As healthcare leaders, it’s important that we take care of ourselves to best address burnout in our teams and organizations. Just like on an airplane - put on your own oxygen mask before helping others.

June 4, 2019 -- Happy Summer everyone! And summer couldn’t come at a better time.  Last week the World Health Organization (WHO) brought attention to the topic of “burnout” by updating the definition of it in the new ICD-11 which will go into effect in 2022. The new ICD-11 handbook will define burnout as a syndrome specifically tied to chronic workplace stress. 

Some folks say they deal with workplace stress by getting outside, which summer brings plenty of opportunity to do - hiking, fishing, golfing, etc… Others see summer as a time to travel and take a vacation to relax.  Personally, I love to travel and summer is definitely a time of travel for my family. I find that the days away from the office, whether visiting extended family, or relaxing by a pool, or exploring a new city and meeting new people help me digest everything going on at work and reflect on the big picture.

As healthcare leaders, it’s important that we take care of ourselves to best address burnout in our teams and organizations. Just like on an airplane - put on your own oxygen mask before helping others.

So I’m curious… what helps you avoid burnout personally?  And does finding ways to cope with work stress actually prevent burnout?  Or if burnout is a result of chronic workplace stress, perhaps finding ways to relax outside of work doesn’t actually solve the problem?  I’m curious what you think. Shoot me an email and let me know! Amanda.choudhary@imail.org

Executive Spotlight

Executive Spotlight: Brian Lines, MHA

"ACHE is important to me so I can stay up to date on current trends, stay relevant in healthcare administration, learn best practices, and socialize with peers in healthcare. I always enjoy connecting with others in our field and helping in any way I can." - Brian Lines

Brian has been the CEO at Lone Peak Hospital since July 2018.  Prior to joining the team at Lone Peak, Brian served as the COO at Ogden Regional Medical Center for three years.

Prior to his time at Ogden Regional Medical Center, Brian was the COO for three years at another Utah facility, Lakeview Hospital. During that time the hospital received Thompson Reuters recognition as a Top 100 hospital three years in a row and placed in the top ten in employee engagement three years in a row.  Previous experience to joining the leadership team at Lakeview Hospital included time as Associate COO in the COO Development Program at The Medical Center of Plano in Texas.

Messages from our Chapter Leaders

President's Message

Josh Spaulding, MHA, FACHE

This is a time of  growth and new opportunities. Many of our student members are graduating from their respective universities and are embarking on the beginning of their professional careers. For others, there are increased responsibilities in current positions and maybe even transitions to new positions. Whatever the circumstances may be, now is a great time to take an assessment of where you are in your career, and determine what next steps you want to take to achieve professionally.

May, 6, 2019 -- The days are getting warmer and longer! I love the transition from winter to spring to summer! This is a time of  growth and new opportunities. Many of our student members are graduating from their respective universities and are embarking on the beginning of their professional careers. For others, there are increased responsibilities in current positions and maybe even transitions to new positions. Whatever the circumstances may be, now is a great time to take an assessment of where you are in your career, and determine what next steps you want to take to achieve professionally.

I had a great opportunity recently to participate in a golf tournament that the Utah Healthcare Executives were able to be one of the sponsors of. I was paired with a student and two additional leaders. Not only did we have a nice day on the course, we had an opportunity to take the time get to know each other by asking questions about backgrounds, discussing the paths our professional careers have taken, and sharing advice that we feel would be beneficial to develop ourselves professionally.

This was a great chance for me to reflect upon my own professional journey and the opportunities I have had in my career to this point. One item that I’d like to mention is that of giving back. I have been blessed over the years with great mentors and many opportunities to serve. For me, this is the value of the Utah Healthcare Executives. I am able to rub shoulders with great leaders and those in the earlier stages of their careers that are interested in making connections and developing themselves professionally. I would encourage you, whether you are an executive mentoring a new student, a colleague willing to take a phone call from a peer wanting to learn about your organization, or just participating in events and networking, that you take the time to give back in whatever form that may be.

I hope that if you have a desire to become more involved in the Utah Healthcare Executives that you will take advantage of our educational opportunities and other events. For those who would like to give back, we are always looking for individuals to participate on our various committees that enable us to put on great events for our members.

As you enjoy the warmer weather and longer days, in addition to working on your golf game, consider putting time into your professional development or those of others.  I'll leave you with this thought from Mahatma Gandhi; “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

I hope to see each of you at our upcoming panel discussions and events!

Thanks,

Josh Spaulding, FACHE
