Message from Your ACHE Regent


After record temperatures here in the Great Northwest, we are back to school and fall has arrived. For lifelong learners it is always back to school month, reminding us of the ACHE core value of Lifelong Learning: We recognize lifelong learning is essential to our ability to innovate and continually improve ourselves, our organizations and our profession.

Recently I had the opportunity to observe presentations by University of Washington Executive MHA program graduates. I would also like to personally congratulate Dajzsa McDaniel, UW MHA class of 2018, on the completion of her summer internship with Harborview Medical Center. These are the everyday heroes in your organization, dedicated to advancement and I would be proud to have any of these graduates on my team.  What talent is already in your system that can help you tackle key issues in healthcare delivery and care transformation? 

The ACHE Seattle Cluster was held September 25-28 with leaders from around the country networking in our beautiful state. The coming months provide many opportunities to network with colleagues. Our WSHEF Annual Meeting & Breakfast is on October 12, which coincides with the Washington State Hospital Association Annual Member Meeting to maximize attendance from members throughout the state. If you will miss me at any of these events, I will also be visiting the Washington State University and Eastern Washington University healthcare management programs later this year. 

In closing I ask for your partnership to support relief efforts with our colleagues in Texas/Florida/Puerto Rico/Nevada who are dealing with tremendous personal and organizational loss as a result of natural and manmade disasters. The months and years to come will be challenging as they adapt to a changed community; I trust we will all learn from this experience and continue to improve the readiness and resilience of our own communities. 

Serving leaders who care,

Andrea Turner, MHS, FACHE
