Message from the President

Thank you for taking the time to visit our new website to learn more about our chapter, ACHE of South Florida. On behalf of our leadership team and members, we wish you and your family a happy, healthy 2021!

ACHE of South Florida, formerly known as the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF), is the local chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). We serve seven counties spanning from Monroe to the Treasure Coast and over one thousand healthcare executives, students and supporters who comprise this organization with roots dating back to 1972.

Throughout the many challenges that we endured in 2020, one thing became abundantly clear, those who dedicate their lives to patients and the improvement of healthcare delivery and outcomes always have been and always will be HEROES! So many have sacrificed so much while battling this pandemic and I am proud to be part of one of the many healthcare-related organizations that contributes to this higher calling.

In the year ahead, our goal is to provide our members and supporters with relevant events and opportunities that will allow them to enhance their diverse roles in the healthcare field. I hope that you will support us!

Please be sure to bookmark this page, follow us on LinkedIn and email me directly if I can be of service. Take care and God bless.

Sincerely,

Kenneth C. Wong, FACHE
