In March I am going to have what will certainly be one of the greatest honors of my professional career when I’m installed as the chairman of the board of governors of the American College of Healthcare Executives. Being allowed to serve in this great organization has been a thrill, and this is certainly the pinnacle.
In preparation for this event, the president and CEO of ACHE, Tom Dolan, Ph.D., FACHE, took the time out of his schedule to come to northern Colorado and talk to the staff and the Poudre Valley Health System board of directors about the upcoming year. Tom has been, I believe, the most capable leader in the history of ACHE, and has established ACHE as the premier professional organization for healthcare executives in the world. PVHS owes Tom a debt for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come and visit us, and we all can thank him for all he has done to establish our profession.
The video below includes some thoughts given by Tom during his visit to Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland. Thanks again, Tom!
