A Message From Your 
ACHE of Massachusetts President


Dear ACHE of Massachusetts Members, 


On November 8th we will host our Fall Conference "The Rapidly Changing Healthcare Environment: Provider Consolidations, Mergers, and Acquisitions." We have 300 people registered due to the critically important nature of the topics and speakers.   


The Annual Meeting of ACHE of Massachusetts will also be held during the Fall Conference. The Nominating Committee will be submitting a slate of officers for a vote by the membership at the meeting. The elected officers will assume a two year term as of January 1, 2012.


Jack Bailey, FACHE has initiated the first Board of Governor's Exam Review Sessions for ACHE of MA. The cycle is ten weeks long and each week a one-hour review is conducted on one of the ten knowledge content areas of the exam.

Congratulations to our members Alan Goldberg, FACHE and Shari Robbins of AMS for the recent article they co-authored in the Sept/Oct issue of ACHE's The Journal of Healthcare Management entitled "Portion Control Opportunities: Real Time Gains for the Hospital Patient Throughput."


I hope that you can join us at an upcoming event. 


William P. Fleming, FACHE
ACHE of Massachusetts, President

Thank You Andrea Paciello, FACHE


Andrea Paciello, FACHE, ACHE Regent for Massachusetts, andrea 
will be completing her term in December 2011. For the past three years she has served ACHE of Massachusetts unselfishly leading our Chapter to a higher level of performance.

She has been an advocate for our Chapter at the National level and in turn, has more closely aligned our Chapter with our national colleagues.

Locally, Andrea has been the key driver in our Chapter developing formal relationships with four University Programs in Healthcare Administration. She has also been a tremendous influence in encouraging members to advance their careers in healthcare management by advancing to Fellow status.

We are all very grateful for the contributions Andrea has made to ACHE of Massachusetts, and to the College. Andrea, we all wish you continued success in your healthcare management career.

Early Careerist Network

Fall is here and many of our local colleges and universities are busy orienting new classes of future healthcare leaders. We look forward to partnering with them to increase student awareness of the value of ACHE membership both now and throughout their careers.

I am pleased to provide the following updates on recent ACHE of Massachusetts Early Careerist Network activities:
  • The 2011-2012 mentorship matches have been made and 38 early careerists have been matched with professional mentors.
  • The Early Careerist Network raised over $2,000 to support the Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in its mission to conquer cancer.
  • FACHE Advancement Study Groups have been formed and a group of 16 qualified ACHE of Massachusetts members have begun preparing for their board certification exams via weekly conference calls.
  • We are pleased to announce a new Quarterly Professional Development Series aimed at delivering practical skills every healthcare leader should master. Our first event, planned for early December will focus on professional networking. More details will be distributed shortly.
