President’s Farewell Letter – Thank you for a great 2011!

What a great year your Chapter has experienced with several new records achieved!

To summarize:

  • Record attendance at breakfast and Category I sessions!
  • Record attendance for the “What’s up Boss?” event!
  • Record number of SETC members!
  • Very successful joint Category I program with ACPE!
  • Highly successful Annual Golf Tournament!
  • Outstanding support of our Sponsors!

We began 2011 with the 1st Quarter Educational Session with a record number (over 300 registrants) to hear keynote speaker Jonathan B. Perlin, MD, President, Clinical Services and CMO of Nashville, Tennessee-based HCA, speak on “Leadership’s Impact on Quality Initiatives: How Data is a Crucial Piece of 21st Century Approach to Quality Medicine.” The first Category I panel discussion of the year, “Building the Hospital of Tomorrow: Rehabilitate, Renovate or Replace” had an impressive registration of 116.

Since its creation in 2005 by Mark Wallace, President/CEO, Texas Children’s Hospital, the “What’s up Boss?” (WUB) event has become a biennial tradition. The night of October 20th will well be remembered by those who attended. Over 165 leaders, early, mid and senior careerists enjoyed the opportunity to dialogue about career development while enjoying the ambience and great food of Trevisio’s restaurant in the TMC. In addition, I was honored to present Dr. David J. Fine, FACHE with a $5,000 academic scholarship in his name. I also had the privilege of formally recognizing honored guests R.O. Hunton, President, The Hunton Group and Monzer Hourani, President of Medistar Corporation, for their outstanding sponsorship support of the WUB event and the Chapter.

On Sept 27th, ACHE-SETC joined with the ACPE (American College of Physician Executives) and presented a Category I panel discussion on “Accountable Care Organizations: Implications and Impact.” Another record attendance: 179!

ACHE – SETC membership is at an all time high! As of this writing your Chapter has 1,354 members! ACHE-SETC is one of the largest ACHE affiliated chapters in the U.S. Special thanks to the ACHE-SETC Membership Committee for their outstanding work in stimulating membership growth with a 100 day campaign.

The Chapter’s 12th Annual Golf Tournament was highly successful with 120 participants and 30 teams. As a result of the Tournament’s success the Star of Hope Mission was the recipient of a check for $8,346.77.

Most important: Your Chapter is successful because of YOU and the commitment of our sponsors. Thank you for a GREAT YEAR! It has been an honor to serve you.

Best wishes to all of you for 2012!

Todd Caliva
