Hello Southeast Texas Colleagues,
Hopefully you all had an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends during the holidays and ready to experience another new year.
Special thanks to Jack Buckley for serving as Chapter President last year. 2016 was highly successful for the Chapter, due to his superb leadership. Congratulations to incoming Chapter President, Jeanna Barnard (CEO, Bayshore Medical Center). She has been hard at work planning some great quarterly educational sessions and has identified the Chapter’s theme for the year as “Driving Patient Experience through Quality and Efficiency”. I have had the privilege knowing and working with Jeanna for many years, and have no doubt she will also do a great job leading our chapter. Please join me in supporting Jeanna this year as she leads the Chapter.
