Message from the President
As you read the first MCACHE newsletter of 2021, I hope you all welcomed the New Year with open arms and a renewed spirit. It is with much optimism the COVID-19 vaccine will allow us to transition into a post-pandemic life with more moments of clarity and serenity, and more time with our family and friends. Perhaps, we’ll even be able to travel again, but make sure you have your vaccination passport ready, as this may be a new reality in post-pandemic life as predicted by The Medical Futurist. Hopefully, this will be an electronic addition to the barcode on our current passport, exhibiting the same digital transformation as we experienced with telemedicine. These are just a few examples being discussed throughout our Winter newsletter.
As we look ahead, MCACHE has developed outstanding educational programming and virtual networking opportunities to foster your professional growth. In addition, ACHE has a fantastic library of podcasts on their website providing best practices and innovative strategies to address over 30 different topics, ranging from innovation and equity to workforce culture and behavioral health disparities. The resources recognize the many different challenges each of us as healthcare administrators may be encountering parallel to the pandemic.
Good luck to all of you involved with your organization’s vaccination program. Thank you for being tenacious leaders in such transformational times. It is through your leadership and commitment to providing quality healthcare that has allowed our communities to successfully endure each milestone in this pandemic.
MCACHE stands committed to providing for the fair and equitable treatment of all people, in our communities, regardless of race, social-economic status, religious or political affiliations. Our times as leaders is now, to be part of the solutions, and use our collective voice and resources to advocate for innovative and sustainable change.
