ACHE of Iowa President Update
Members of the American College of Healthcare Executives of Iowa:
My name is Kevin Kincaid, FACHE, and I am honored to serve as the 2015 president of the American College of Healthcare Executives of Iowa (ACHE of Iowa). I am completely an Iowa boy that has spent his entire adult life in Iowa healthcare. The only exception was 6 years spent on nuclear submarines as a Sonar Tech then Hospital Corpsman in Scotland and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After leaving the military I enrolled at the University of Iowa in the Radiology program. I worked evenings at the U of I and Mercy Hospital Iowa City while going to school during the day. I then found myself at Grinnell Regional Medical Center for over a decade then Dallas County Hospital and currently at the Knoxville Hospital & Clinics serving as their CEO. I have an MHA degree from Des Moines University.
The Iowa Chapter of the ACHE has provided me great opportunities to learn and network as my career took a variety of twists and turns. I encourage you to look for ways to get involved, stay involved, network, learn and most importantly mentor the new leaders for the next generation.
Our first priority is you, the member. Our primary function is to continue to provide high quality educational opportunities and networking events. We also look to make many more value added components to your membership like FACHE assistance, committee & Board opportunities, and fun events to mingle with your colleagues. As we move forward through 2015 you can always keep track of our happenings on the Iowa Chapter website: http://iowa.ache.org Please go ahead and add to your favorites!!! Know that there are many people at the ACHE working to ensure you have access to the best information to address the immense challenges we all face. More locally, these Chapter Officers and Board members are working hard to ensure we have an organized and effective Chapter.
