Message from the President
Rene Zipper, MBA, FACHE, 2016 SFHEF President
Dear ACHE/SFHEF Members & Colleagues:
It is my pleasure as the incoming 2016 President to thank the 2015 board, and reflect on our accomplishments. A special thank you goes out to Ralph Rios for laying a strong foundation, and being available for mentorship. As the incoming President of the SouthFlorida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF), I am proud to be part of an organization that helps improve healthcare delivery by providing opportunities for the professional development of our members through educational and social activities in our community. Our programs allow for mentoring and networking for any member, including students getting ready to begin a career in healthcare, early careerists, and senior executives.
Within our organization there is a strong sense of fellowship, and we encourage all healthcare students and executives to get involved. The members of SFHEF are committed to the principles of our umbrella organization, the American College of Healthcare Executives ("ACHE"). These principles include Integrity, Lifelong Learning, Leadership and Diversity.
In 2016 we look forward to educational programs on topics that include, but will not be limited to, Information Safety, Career Positioning, Physician Integration, Diversity in Healthcare Management, Accountability for the Care we Provide and Care Coordination. We plan to host three networking events where we will collaborate with other local healthcare organizations.
Please join us and in 2016.
Rene Zipper, MBA, FACHE
