May Board Member Spotlight:  Thomas Sebastian, Treasurer-Elect

                                                               thomas sebastian 

Joining the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum was a decision that changed the course of my life.  Being
involved with this volunteer-based organization has allowed me to mature and grow professionally amongst a network
of healthcare professionals who dedicate their lives to improving their community through the use of civic involvement.  
My beginnings with SFHEF started when I was enrolled as a MHA student at Florida Atlantic University.  Although I
was interning and making the best use of my time as a graduate student, I began to realize my efforts to establish a
career would hardly be conducive unless I networked with other healthcare professionals.  

In 2012 I joined ACHE as a student associate and became a member after graduating with my Masters degree.  
The educational and networking events I attended through SFHEF were all invaluable experiences that enhanced my
professional development.  After interacting with high caliber individuals at these events, I began to conduct and present
myself in a more professional demeanor which showed my colleagues that I knew how to be a “good fit” within reputable
organizations. These events were also fun and fulfilling.  As I began to attend more events, I saw many familiar faces
and made some life-long friends who gave me advice about this rapidly changing industry. 

This is my third year as an ACHE member, and I currently hold the position as Treasurer-Elect for the SFHEF board.  
I have already been exposed to several accounting concepts from this experience and hope to learn more as I continue
my tenure with this leading organization.  By joining ACHE, I was able to: learn about innovative technological advances,
meet experienced professionals, and gain insight about population health.  With this being said, I would like to invite you
to connect with SFHEF – not only for the purposes of advancing your career, but to join outstanding individuals who can
help you contribute to the South Florida community in ways you have yet to see!

Message from Your ACHE Regent: Fall 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Fall 2014

The year has truly flown by and healthcare continues to reshape itself in the various marketplaces in Eastern Florida. Our chapters have also been very active this quarter and offering our members educational face to face hours and a lineup of excellent speakers and topics. We also are in the window for elections in committees and officers. As you read this please engage your chapter if you have interest in any of these positions. Your talent and expertise are much appreciated as we all grow professionally and build our relationships and networks to get the job of healthcare done. Well done. I want to congratulate all of our Eastern Florida members for your commitment to ACHE, chapters and our communities.

At the annual Florida Hospital Association meeting, we recognized several members for their hard work and contributions to the chapters. John Martin from the ACHE of Central Florida Chapter has been a mainstay in building strong relationships between the chapter and the University. He stepped up to the plate and forged new opportunities for our students and the chapter members. Cami Leech Florio, FACHE from the Treasure Coast Healthcare Executive Network Chapter has worked tirelessly in the astute planning and execution of programming events. We have a couple more Regent's Awards to present for our South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum members in January 2015.

I also want to recognize the ACHE of Central Florida Chapter for earning one of ACHE’s Award for Diversity and Inclusion. The training, scheduled events and contributions of its diverse group has promoted diversity for the chapter and ACHE. Thanks to the ACHE of Central Florida members and to all of our chapters for promoting greater awareness and diversity among members and in our communities.

Just a few weeks ago we celebrated Veterans' Day. I want to thank all of veterans for your service to our nation and in protecting and safeguarding our way of life. Thanks Veterans! And we celebrated Thanksgiving Day around family and friends. What a great country. Please remember to be safe and to enjoy your families. All the best for the upcoming holiday seasons and a new year, 2015!

Keith W. Gallagher, FACHE
Regent for Florida - Eastern
