About Us

History
 
The Midwest Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (MCACHE) is a professional organization first established in 1984 as the Southeastern Michigan Health Executive Forum (SEMHEF). In January 2002, SEMHEF was revitalized and transformed into Michigan Healthcare Executives Group and Associates (MHEGA), a local Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). In 2008, MHEGA welcomed healthcare executives from ACHE’s northwest Ohio Chapter and changed its name to Midwest Healthcare Executives Group and Associates to reflect the merger. In 2014, MHEGA changed its name to the Midwest Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
 
Today, MCACHE is more than 900 members strong and provides a local forum for the exchange of information and viewpoints to enhance professional development and facilitate networking opportunities. MCACHE is an authorized affiliate of the ACHE.
