Message from the President
Dear ACHE/SFHEF Members & Colleagues:
I am honored to serve as the President of the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum for the upcoming year of 2019. I look forward to working with each and every one of you to grow and promote our ACHE chapter within the South Florida healthcare community. In turn, I encourage you to reach out to SFHEF and participate in our many educational and networking activities. We’re in an exciting, yet troubling time in the healthcare industry, and a clear communication network between professionals, experienced and inexperienced, is essential. Health care as a whole is constantly evolving, and this trend will continue to challenge us.
The healthcare system has undergone a rapid transformation since I was last SFHEF Chapter President a decade ago. Marketplace consolidation, service expansions, and payment reform to name just a few, have placed more emphasis on value-based care and ROI accountability. And it will take all of us to ensure the best interests of our patients are our ultimate goal. To that end, I strongly encourage all of you to be active in our organization. There is power in unity and strength in numbers, so it is crucial for all to be advocates for our healthcare community. To make a real difference, we must be a proactive community, jointly seeking out effective solutions for future problems. In SFHEF, there is a place for everyone, whether you work in a healthcare facility, are a vendor to the industry, or are a student soon to join our workforce.
Let’s all become part of the conversation and let’s connect …
Charles Felix, 2019 SFHEF President
