President's Message

As any health care executive knows, there are many transformational changes currently taking place in the healthcare landscape. Understanding how to successfully navigate these changes, whether it is managing one’s career or managing an organization or team, is critically important.

To assist health care executives in these challenging times, ACHE offers two excellent tools that I encourage each Greater Ohio Healthcare Leaders’ Forum (GOHLF) member to take the time to use. First, ACHE recently launched CareerEDGE™a unique, interactive and comprehensive tool for planning and managing your career. Available as a complimentary benefit to ACHE members, CareerEDGE™ contains a full array of resources needed for a strategic approach to career management at any career level. CareerEDGE™ is located under the Career Resource Center tab on the ACHE web site.

Among the resources provided by CareerEDGE™ are assessments that assess the key attributes and behaviors associated with job performance and satisfaction, and the key characteristics influencing job fit and satisfaction, as well as clarifying your values and the importance of how these values are actualized and expressed in your job. Additionally, CareerEDGE includes resource tools that assess leadership competencies and provides links to career and job search research databases.

Second, GOHLF offers members a number of conveniently located educational events designed to serve your professional development. GOHLF’s three Local Programming Council Chairs (Krista Maxey – Columbus, Sana Rockwell, FACHE – Cincinnati, and Amy Stockman, FACHE – Dayton) have done an outstanding job with their teams to create a robust calendar of events that address timely health care related topics. For a current list of scheduled GOHLF educational events, you can go to the GOHLF web site ( and go to the “Events” tab.     

I encourage each of you to attend a local educational event and visit CareerEDGE™.
